Spectra’s Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) systems are fully automated to Gas and Liquid Chromatography for analysis of complex mixtures providing high fidelity solid phase spectra for a broad range of applications. Including Polymer & Copolymer GPC-IR Analysis, Polymer Excipient Analysis and General Analytical LC-IR & GC-IR.
Vibrational Spectroscopy, Infrared Spectroscopy (mid FTIR) in particular, is widely recognized as a reliable technique for the identification and structural elucidation of organic and inorganic materials. The DiscovIR couples Infrared Spectroscopy to a Chromatographic system (gas or liquid), and allows analytical chemists and product development scientists to easily analyze and identify each component in a complex mixture. The DiscovIR readily identifies compounds such as controlled substances, polymers, copolymers and can be useful in academia, research and industrial settings.
The combination of two widely used techniques, Infrared Spectroscopy and Liquid or Gas Chromatography, brings a powerful tool to analytical chemists looking to outfit their lab with a versatile instrument for the analysis of complex mixtures. Complementing MS systems, Infrared Spectroscopy hyphenated systems give information that cannot be obtained through any other means. The DiscovIR can be used for a variety of analytical applications, from entomology (insect alkaloid analysis) to proteomics (proteins secondary structure characterization) to explosive analysis (field sample analysis).
The potential benefits of FT-IR Spectroscopy coupled with LC or GC Chromatography include:
Rapid separation and identification of complex mixtures.
High specificity of Infrared Spectroscopy, enabling differentiation of structural analogs.
Solid state Mid-IR spectra, allowing for comparison with commercially available libraries.
No exposure to hazardous chemicals.
