Excellent tool for routine analysis of powders, liquids, and paints.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Analysis of supertoxic chemicals, contaminated coatings and materials

"The golden gate is very easy to use, and is highly reproducible if care is taken in applying appropriate pressure to the crystal and if careful cleaning is performed between samples. Untrained users might apply too much pressure resulting in damage to the crystal."

An indispensable FTIR accessory
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:materials analysis

"Very easy to use. I can analyze different types of materials. Very high energy output, high quality spectra. I recommend it for difficult samples containing small quantity of impurities. Great IR spectra on solid or liquid samples."

Fills a unique and important niche in IR sampling. Great accessory
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Analyze surfaces in multi-layer polymer films

"Have had many years of faithful service--never needed repair. Disadvantages are 1) the small sample area between the "gold" pillars and under the pressure foot; 2) unable to see if the foot is pressing exactly at the right spot on the sample; and 3) the lack of some kind of pressure measurement or indicator to ensure consistent pressure on a sample."

Excellent characterization tool for media such as cell suspension and serum.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Analyze serum for disease induced changes

"The ATR offered good signal to noise ratio (since it is atmospherically sealed) and easy clean-up."

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:take spectra of powdered plant and animal samples

"The Golden gate is the ATR by which all ATRs are measured. We have 2 in our laboratory and have used these almost constantly mover the last 10 years. They are outlasting the FTIR specs and have shown themselves to be exceptionally robust, reliable and surprisingly student proof."

An Essential IR Accessory
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Industrial Coatings, Resins and Raw Materials

"I've been using one of these for over 20 years now, producing excellent quality spectra for all types of materials from corrosive, volatiles liquids to hard, crystalline solids and everything between. It is a very robust product, very simple to use and keep clean. Can be used in both research and QC/factory environments."

We have had two of these for nearly 10 years and they are without doubt the most durable pieces of kit I have in my laboratory, they even survive student use.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:plant cell wall biology

"We have had two of these for nearly 10 years and they are without doubt the most durable pieces of kit I have in my laboratory, they even survive student use. Spectral quality is excellent, transmission is approx 10% of full beam energy, we can easily analyse between 200-300 samples per day and scrape the samples off with blades if they need to be retained or vac them off with a domestic cleaner. I could not praise them more. The only thing to break is the saphire anvil, which we replace every few years."

Specac’s Golden Gate™ ATR Accessory is a high performance single reflection monolithic diamond ATR product offer, featuring a Type IIIA diamond ATR element metal-bonded into a tungsten carbide mount to provide outstanding durability and exceptional chemical resistance. The robust design, strength, and inherent inertness of the Golden Gate™ diamond ATR element allows this ATR accessory to be used to achieve high-quality spectral data in the analysis of a broad range of materials including those that are abrasive, hard, reactive, or corrosive.

Little or no sample preparation is required when using the Golden Gate™ ATR – the only requirement is that the sample is in optical contact with the diamond element. The Golden Gate™ ATR is particularly appropriate for samples that may polymerise or set during analysis since they can be cleaned off with a knife or abrasive pad without damaging the ATR element. With a load capability up to 160 lbs (80 lbs standard) over the ATR element, good quality spectra can be achieved from the hardest rocks, powders, and pellets. Special anvils are available to hold polymer pellets, to seal in and run air/moisture sensitive samples, and to analyse coatings on wires.

Specac’s Standard Golden Gate™ ATR Accessory is compatible with a range of upgradeable sampling options for advanced ATR material analysis, including heated, cooled, reaction cell, or super critical fluids top plate ATR sample stages. The demountable nature of the top plate is well suited for the preparation of toxic or harmful materials, as they can be prepared in a glove box, sealed, and then measured with a higher degree of operator protection than other infrared sampling methods.
