Product News: Pike Technologies Introduce New X, Y Autosampler/Microplate Reader for FTIR Spectrometers

12 Mar 2013

PIKE Technologies introduces the next generation X, Y Autosampler/Microplate Reader for FTIR Spectrometers. This accessory is designed around standard 24-, 48- or 96-well microplate configurations and is suitable for high throughput sample analysis of liquid residues, solids and powdered samples.

The accessory mounts in the sample compartment of the spectrometer and can operate in diffuse reflection or transmission modes. Its design relies on high quality transfer optics and a precision ellipsoidal reflector. The size of the spot illuminated at the sample is approximately 2 mm which is ideal for working with 96-well plates. IR transparent silicon and dedicated diffuse reflection 96-well plates are available for transmission and reflection measurements.

The X, Y Autosampler is controlled by PIKE Technologies’ AutoPRO software which can be easily integrated with many FTIR packages. The accessory is compatible with most brands and models of spectrometers.
