Robust instrument that is easy to use.
Application Area:Materials identification and contaminant extract analysis
"The instrument is very well built and consistent. It replaced an older version Nicolet FTIR and has not failed to meet the expectation. The software is easy to use and intuitive. The instrument is rugged and the plates for the ATR are well constructed. We did have one small issue but it was handled quickly and efficiently. We had a 1 year warranty coverage with Unity Labs for the instrument and called when we had a detector issue. They came out the next day and determined that the detector was faulty. They didn't have the proper one in stock and placed in a similar one from another model in the instrument so we wouldn't experience down time. The instrument worked properly and when the correct detector became available, Unity returned and placed it in the in the instrument. The instrument has been going strong since. This review is kudos for the instrument's ruggedness and for Unity Labs' field service."
Maximize laboratory productivity and quickly collect high-quality spectral data with the Thermo Scientific™ Nicolet™ iS20 FTIR Spectrometer. An integrated touch panel allows users of any skill level to quickly analyze challenging samples and a new multi-color LED scan bar gives users immediate feedback on whether the instrument is in idle, collect or alert mode. Identify unknown contaminants, perform failure analysis and accurately analyze mixtures using the spectral power of the Thermo Scientific™ LightDrive™ Optical Engine built into each instrument. A 10-year warranty on the source, laser and interferometer provide unmatched peace of mind for years to come.
Trusted by thousands of users around the world, the Nicolet iS10 FTIR Spectrometer set the benchmark for analytical FTIR instruments. Now, the Nicolet iS20 FTIR Spectrometer resets the standard and pushes the limits of innovation to the next level. With its redesigned optical engine and modern industrial design, the Nicolet iS20 spectrometer creates the perfect combination of the instrument platform FTIR users loved with the improvements they need.
Accurately discern multi-component samples: advanced LightDrive optical engine technology delivers higher spectral resolution (0.25 cm-1) and single-to-noise ratios (50,000:1) to help identify possible contaminants or characterize defects present in small quantities
Improve data reproducibility: state-of-the-art infrared source eliminates hot spot migration, resulting in more consistent spectral data, especially through an attenuated total reflectance (ATR) accessory
Streamline workflow productivity: multi-colored LED touch panel provides visual feedback on instrument status for increased productivity(ready, scan, alert); System Performance Verification (SPV) assures day- to-day results are trusted
Reduce cost of ownership: 10-year warranty on the source, laser and interferometer provides peace of mind; the LightDrive interferometer provides a 5-fold increase in relative lifetime over current interferometer technology, minimizing the need for replacements
Share data anytime, anywhere: upload data to the Thermo Fisher Cloud using this cloud-enabled FTIR spectrometer. Students can upload, analyze and share data away from the instrument using the OMNIC Anywhere App on their PC, Apple Computer, Android, or iOS device. All Thermo Fisher Cloud accounts come with 10 GB of free storage.
Be compliant, be sure: fully-automated validation test routines are available for IQ/OQ (installation and operational qualification), European Pharmacopeia (Ph. Eur.), United States Pharmacopeia (USP), Japanese Pharmacopeia (JP) and China Pharmacopeia (CP); 21 CFR Part 11 compliance and data security packages are available
Easily add new capabilities: spectrometer recognizes Thermo Scientific™ Smart™ Accessories, commercially available third party accessories, TGA-IR module, and external microscopes to adapt to challenging sample needs now and in the future
