Smallest footprint FTIR? Tell us how small and WIN great prizes!

Shimadzu UK is running a new competition where UK-based scientists can win a free spectroscopy training course (worth £1200) and other great prizes in celebration of the best-selling IRSpirit FTIR spectrophotometer.

IRSpirit combines both simple operation and dependable reliability - in a footprint that’s smaller than an A3 size sheet of paper! This nifty bit of equipment can fit almost anywhere and weighs just 8.5kg making it ideal for your lab – whether it’s for research, QC or teaching.

It’s also the smallest (footprint) and lightest FTIR spectrophotometer in the world that can be used with accessories from other manufacturers – allowing users to have an array of flexibility options.

The spectrophotometer boasts the highest sensitivity to help give you the quality data you need and includes technology that is developed for higher-end models to offer excellent sensitivity. Its humidity-resistant design – featuring aluminium die cast body and humidity-resistant components – means the IRSpirit is extremely reliable, even in harsh temperatures and high humidity.   

Even users with the most minimal FTIR experience will find this product a doddle – with 23 pre-set application programmes already included as standard. There is also no need to adjust parameters - users simply have to select the analysis purpose and accessory - with one click they can then measure multiple samples!

The benefits don’t stop there: the IRSpirit is also compatible with a whole range of accessories, such as ATR and available with either a KBS-5 or KBr window for up to 90% RH. It’s perfect for pharma, chemicals, plastics, food: whatever your environment! Oh, and did we mention you can also install an anti-theft and anti-drop keylock? 

To be in with a chance of winning a free UK-based training course (topics include – but are not limited to - theory behind infra-red and UV-Vis spectroscopy, application support, maintenance and troubleshooting), simply visit Shimadzu’s website and answer a simple question regarding the size of the IRSpirit FTIR spectrophotometer.

Five runners up will also win a giant Microbe plushie each! Humorous, educational and collectable fun, these microbes come with a printed card and fascinating facts. Plushies include cells, organs, diseases, germs and more.
