Agilent 5500 FTIR

Agilent 45500 Series FTIR

The Agilent 5500 Series Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) instruments are advanced mid-infrared region spectrometer platforms that offer the same capabilities as larger and more traditional FTIR spectrometers. However, they are designed to be smaller in size, easier to maintain, and more affordable.

These instruments are specifically designed to provide precise results in material analysis without the complexity, high maintenance requirements, or expensive costs associated with larger FTIR spectrometers. The Agilent 5500 Series FTIR instruments offer accurate and reliable performance, making them an excellent choice for a variety of applications in different industries.

The Agilent 5500 Series FTIR  is a powerful tool that features:

  • Longer path length capabilities in transmission spectroscopy in a user-friendly format similar to ATR with the 5500 DialPath analysers.
  • Quick analysis of samples by placing a single drop of liquid on the surface of the 5500t analyser and rotating a second window into position to sandwich the sample.
  • Available with one, three, or five reflection-diamond ATRs, catering to various applications, including single-reflection diamond ATR for solids and liquids identification and multi-reflection ZnSe ATR for liquid analysis.
  • Intuitive, method-driven, multi-language software that guides users through every step of the operation, ensuring ease of use. The software features colour-coded alerts to confirm whether samples meet specifications.
  • MicroLab Quant provides a simple, guided quantitative methods development package, making it easy to develop and optimise quantitative methods quickly and efficiently.
  • Optional MicroLab Pharma supports compliance with data integrity regulations, ensuring accurate and reliable data analysis.

The Agilent 4500 portable FTIR Spectrometer is a powerful tool that features:

  • Rugged, portable FTIR spectrometer.
  • This product is perfect for those who want reliable and high-quality answers, without having to be in a lab setting.
  • The 4500a Attenuated Total Reflectance (ATR) Interface is ideal for the chemical analysis of liquids, powders, pastes and gels; while the TumblIR (4500t) or DialPath interfaces are perfectly suited for rapid liquid analysis under ambient conditions.
  • Depending on the application, one, three, or five reflection-diamond ATRs are available.
    The Special forensics analyzer package (4500a) detects unknown chemicals, like narcotics and psychoactive drugs
  • The 4500 DialPath analyzer is capable of giving you the long pathlength capabilities that come with transmission FTIR spectroscopy, but without the complexity.
  • The 4500t makes it easy to take high-quality samples quickly and efficiently. Simply wipe the two windows clean before taking your next sample.
  • The MicroLab FTIR software is designed to give you clear and actionable answers. The intuitive, method-driven software guides users through every step of operation in multiple languages, while optional settings such as hazard or color-coded alerts help users with the result review.
