Shimadzu Scientific Instruments (Columbia, Md.) has developed the IRAffinity-1 Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrophotometer, with high-throughput optics and a dynamic alignment mechanism to increase sensitivity, stability and usability. The IRAffinity-1 is designed for high-precision infrared analysis to confirm, identify and detect foreign matter in raw materials, medical products, packages and coatings. The device reportedly offers the highest signal-to-noise ratio (sensitivity) in its class at 30,000:1, with a maximum resolution of 0.5 cm-1. The unit achieves this level of sensitivity by using a high-energy ceramic light source; temperature-controlled, high-sensitivity DLATGS detector; and high-throughput optical elements. To increase reliability, the IRAffinity-1 executes self-diagnosis at initialization and monitors the state of the instrument during operation. Users can check basic performance using a validation program. IRsolution software, standard in the IRAffinity-1, emphasizes operability and analysis support programs to perform data processing and analysis. With IRsolution, users can perform standard operations, such as measurement, display, data processing, quantitative analysis, search and printing.
