Hand-held hyperspectral/multispectral imaging device that acquires full, continuous visible/NIR data. It uses snapshot imaging that captures spectral images during a single integration time of a detector array, requiring no scanning and avoiding motion artefacts. It has a wide range of objective lenses from wide angle to close-up. Covers the range 600–1000 nm.
A push-broom, hand-held hyperspectral imager with applications in remote sensing as well as conveyor-belt analyses. Spectral range is 560–1000 nm.
Multispectral sensors with up to eight wavelength-selective photodiodes in a compact array <1 cm2. The PixelSensor VIS splits the visible spectrum into right discrete bands, and customised OEM versions are available with user-defined spectral bands.
PixelSensor Developer Kit
A toolkit for developing and protyping multispectral sensors. Users can enable and select channel-specific settings, device configuration, sampling modes, and data display and logging options. More advanced device modifications are accessible through the Arduino integrated development environment.
OWL SW1.7 CL-640
Rugged digital vis-SWIR camera using a 640× 512 InGaAs sensor covering the 400–1700 nm range with a 15 × 15 µm pixel pitch. It is available with a 14-bit CameraLink output, and will run from 10 Hz to 120 Hz enabling high-speed digital video.
Now available with the new wide range MIR-FIR DLaTGS detector and the recently introduced wide range MIR-FIR beamsplitter. This provides data collection from 6000 cm–1 to 10 cm–1 in one step for all types of transmittance, reflectance and ATR measurements without the need for any beamsplitter or detector exchange.
Universal Forward Looking Reflectance Accessory
This new accessory for the Alpha FT-IR spectrometer allows for the rapid IR characterisation of almost any large or oddly shaped sample or object. The sample is placed in front of the spectrometer with accessory and a spectrum collected.
Compact research-grade FT-IR spectrometer replacing the Tensor 27/37. Uses a diode laser with a longer hold time than HeNe lasers. The IR source is electronically stabilised for longer exposure times. For regulated industries, fully-automated test routines for OQ and PQ are available as well as 21 CFR Part 11 compliant software.
Compact spectrometer for atmospheric measurements by solar absorption spectroscopy. The CAMTracker camera-based feedback system follows the light automatically as the light source. It is portable and can operate for long periods in remote areas with little infrastructure.
Infrared microscope using a quantum cascade laser providing spectral coverage over the entire mid-IR fingerprint region designed for spectral imaging of biomedical and materials research samples. Has two IR and one visible objectives, transmission and reflection modes, a fully automated stage and instrument control and data display via an Ethernet connection to a PC.
Multiple reflection ATR for measurement of analytes at very low concentrations, to 0.5 mg mL–1 or less and volumes down to 10 µL. Both the 10-reflection diamond and 11-reflection Si configurations are compatible with nearly all FT-IR spectrometers and are enclosed for rapid purge. It is now available with trough-style and flow-through liquid cells for operation up to 200°C.

Gas Cells for Small FT-IRs
ICL have created special optical interfaces for small-size FT-IR spectrometers for gas analysis. These instruments require adaptations to accommodate large accessories such as long-path gas cells. The interfaces enable use with small FT-IRs such as Bruker’s Alpha, Thermo’s iS5 and PerkinElmer’s Spectrum Two.
Portable Mid-IR ATR Spectrometers
Hand-held, battery-powered spectrometers with no moving parts. An ATR crystal is fixed into the casing. Can be configured for analysis of liquids, slurries or solids. Sphinx software has modules for chemometrics, automation, prediction and a stand-alone mode where the module runs independently of a host computer.
Mid-range FT-IR spectrometer with 60,000 : 1 signal-to-noise ratio. Can analyse small samples, from 1 mm to 10 µm. The previous model, the IRPrestige-21 recorded spectra every 5 s; the IRTRacer-100 can obtain 20 spectra per second in the optional rapid scan mode. The LabSolutions IR software connects to other laboratory hardware, such as LC and GC systems, and unifies management of the measured data. The number of spectra in the standard IR libraries has been expanded from 1000 to 12,000.
Portable FT-IR spectrometer for illicit drug analysis with a library of up to 2500 narcotics, precursors, common chemicals and cutting agents, which can easily be expanded with new drug variants. It has been designed for use by personnel of varying skill levels and requires minimal training for operation.

iD7 ATR Accessory
ATR accessory for the Nicolet iS5 FT-IR spectrometer with a high-performance monolithic diamond. Optional zinc selenide or germanium crystals in easily swappable plates.
Isotope ratio infrared spectrometer for the continuous measurement of isotope ratios from CO2 in ambient air. Can be used in the field providing the ability to collect data continuously. Uses laser-based mid-IR spectroscopy to measure simultaneously 13C and 18O with a precision better than 0.1 ppt in minutes. Wide concentration range from 200 ppm to 100%.
