This miniature ATR spectrometer contains all needed instruments: the sample interface, the light source and detector, the crystal cover and the Ocean Mirror software. It is a compact, fast and scalable alternative to traditional FTIR spectroscopy solutions.
Ocean MZ5 is a complete system and does not require any external equipment such as light sources or fibers. The dedicated software allows users to measure absorbance and transmittance of liquids placed on the instrument’s crystal surface. A rotating cover protects the crystal when not in use.
Applications include chemical discrimination, food and flavorings analysis, environmental testing and scientific research.
