ATLANTA – Pittcon 2016 – (March 7, 2016)

For small business owners, technicians, laboratory managers and method developers, a new FT-NIR spectrometer is designed to bring rapid and reliable analysis for quality control and material verification.

The Thermo Scientific Nicolet iS5N FT-NIR spectrometer, which debuts during Pittcon 2016 (booth 2239) at the Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, is a cost-effective, compact, lightweight spectrometer that is backed by strong global service support.

"NIR measurements are often critical to assuring product quality across a broad range of materials, and reliable, accurate instrumentation is required to deliver these measurements," said Simon Nunn, global director, product management, Thermo Fisher. "The new iS5N spectrometer offers the quality and performance that our Nicolet FTIR product line is known for. Thermo Fisher designed this product so that its price and performance would prove ideal for small enterprises and QC laboratories in chemical and polymer industries requiring rapid, accurate results."

The Nicolet iS5N uses the same proprietary software platform found across the entire Thermo Scientific Nicolet FTIR family. The OMNIC Lite software supports routine system operation, and the TQ Analyst EZ or Pro software can be used for calibration model development. Users manage and customize workflows within the intuitive graphic user interface provided by the OMNIC software suite, which includes Macros Basic and Macros Pro.

Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) is a workhorse technique for materials identification, and quality control. Designed as a reliable, cost-effective material analysis tool designed to meet the needs of busy labs, the Nicolet iS5N is set to extend NIR technology and proven IR analysis into new arenas.
