Axiom Analytical Releases New Data Sheet Describing its Fiber-Optic Coupled Spectroscopic Cuvette Sampler
(Nanowerk News) Axiom Analytical, Inc. has announced the availability of a new data sheet covering its FCV-150 fiber-optic coupled cuvette sampling system. The FCV-150 is compatible with Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) and dispersive spectrometers operating in the near-infrared (NIR) and UV-Visible spectral regions. It provides precise temperature controlled optical transmission measurement while accommodating sample containing cuvettes with a wide range of optical pathlengths.
The FCV-150 features a sampling region accommodating cuvettes with pathlengths from 1 to 50 mm as well as a preheating zone. This combination provides for rapid interchange of up to 15 samples. The use of fiber-optic coupling facilitates sample analysis in a fume hood or in other locations separated from the spectroscopic analyzer.
The Company reports that the FCV-150 is being applied in quality control and service laboratories as well as chemical and pharmaceutical development and modeling for process analytical technology (PAT) applications. .
