New Spectrometer Delivers Fast, Accurate Analysis

Feb 04 2019 Read 656 Times

The Ocean MZ5 from Ocean Optics is a compact, fully integrated ATR-MIR spectrometer that measures liquid samples from 1818-909 cm-1 (5.5-11 μm). Ocean MZ5 comprises a sample interface, light source, detector and software, and provides a fast, convenient alternative to traditional FTIR spectroscopy for lab research. Applications range from chemical discrimination and food and flavourings authentication, to biofuels analysis and environmental testing.

Ocean MZ5 is a self-contained system that does not require any external equipment such as light sources or fibres. Ocean Mirror, the dedicated software platform that comes with the system, is designed for measuring absorbance and transmittance of liquids placed on the instrument’s crystal surface. A rotating cover protects the crystal when not in use.

Ocean Optics has extensive applications and solutions development experience across the UV, Visible and NIR wavelength ranges. With Ocean MZ5, the company has partnered with Pyreos Ltd to expand its capabilities into new mid-IR solutions. The unique combination of Pyreos’ pyroelectric line arrays and Ocean Optics’ applied spectral knowledge opens up new application challenges involving samples with distinct mid-IR absorption characteristics. This includes detection of food adulterants and contaminants, determination of oil grade and quality, and analysis of alcohol purity.
