ABB unveils the result of a 5 MCAD investment project: the MB3000 spectrometer

Mar 02 2009

The MB3000, a Fourier Transformed Infrared analysis system, represents a major technological breakthrough into the market of low-cost, high-performance equipment. It will be used in laboratories as well as in industrial processes to analyze multiple chemical components in the final quality control of several common products used daily. ABB developed the rugged, highly reliable instrument, offering exceptional performance and ease of use in response to increasing customer demand.

The Interferometer, the heart of the instrument, combines 20-year proven technology with one recently developed for aerospace application, thanks to the Canadian Space Agency’s technology development program. This interferometer, which in fact is a miniaturized module used in satellites, has been integrated into the new design of the analyzer. The small footprint of the MB3000 requires very little work space, meeting the needs of today’s overcrowded laboratories. The innovative system was developed by a multidisciplinary team of ABB’s experts.

“The MB3000 offers exciting new opportunities to develop new products and applications, generating growth for the business for the coming years,” stated Jean-René Roy, ABB Analytical’s Business Unit General Manager. “More than ever, ABB is equipped to better serve the analytical chemistry market, including research centers, universities and industries. The MB3000 is a versatile analyzer that enables different accessories to be used for diversified applications.”
