- Axiom Analytical, Inc. Announces a New Fiber-Optic Diffuse Reflectance Probe for Contact Near Infrared (NIR) Powder Analysis
Product News: Axiom Analytical, Inc. Announces a New Fiber-Optic Diffuse Reflectance Probe for Contact Near Infrared (NIR) Powder AnalysisAxiom Analytical, Inc. has announced the availability of its FDR-735 Near-IR diffuse reflectance probe for the contact analysis of optically scattering materials such as pharmaceutical powders, polymers, and food products.
Key characteristics of the new probe include high collection efficiency, low stray light, robust construction, and excellent chemical resistance. The use of SMA 905 fiber-optic connectors allows FDR-700 Series probes to be used with most near-IR and UV-visible spectrometers. Small size and light weight make the FDR-735 ideal for hand-held operation as well as applications involving confined space.
The FDR-735 is the latest member of the company’s new FDR-7x5 Series of diffuse reflectance probes which includes the previously announced FDR-755 Extruder Probe. The FDR-755 is configured for the spectroscopic analysis of materials such as polymers and food products during extrusion. The FDR-7x5 Series replaces Axiom’s previous FDR-700 Series.
In contrast to the earlier probes, the new series features both high signal levels and extremely low stray light, making these probe suitable for a wide range of demanding application in the chemical pharmaceutical and food industries.
