Great instrument.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area: Polymers & coatings

"Excellent FTIR instrument - easy to operate, robust, small footprint, and user-friendly. Calibrations are entirely automated. Only complaint is the software licensing - the product key can no longer be used to install the software, and I was told we are required to purchase a new license to install it on another computer."

It is OK but it has not been reliable. Repair is expensive.
Rating: 2.7

  • Application Area:Infrared spectroscopy

"We purchased the FTIR because of a good warranty, but a board went bad. It was just out of warranty, and it will cost about half us much as a new instrument to replace it."
