Micro-deposition improves analysis
DiscovIR’s unique temperature controlled, vacuum deposition method ensures that results are accurate and reproducible. Eluted peaks are first deposited in a film on to a rotating IR transparent disc. Next, an infrared beam passes through each concentrated spot and the detector automatically collects spectral data.
Concentrates analytes in minimal area
Cryogenic temperature control of the Sample Disc minimizes the area of the deposited analyte. This results in a thicker sample layer and therefore Higher Sensitivity of the absorbance spectrum.
New DiscovIR-LCTM system from Spectra Analysis is able to afford total solvent removal from a reversed-phase gradient run (2% to 100% organic) with no change in the operational setpoints of the system. Solid phase Transmission FTIR Spectra are acquired continuously throughout the run.
