  • High-performance ATR spectrometer accessory

    The Quest ATR Accessory is a performance single-reflection ATR accessory from Specac designed for laboratory spectroscopic sample analysis in the mid- and far-infrared. With innovative optical design and durable monolithic diamond ATR crystal option, this sets the benchmark in performance and value for ATR spectroscopy.

    The Quest's innovative optical design is based around all reflective gold-coated optics, and features Specac's Synopti-Focal Array technology with precision-moulded aspheric mirrors. These features allow for a high throughput accessory with an extended wavelength capability suitable for both mid and far-IR spectroscopy.

    Interchangeable ATR FTIR crystal puck

    Various interchangeable ATR crystal pucks are available for the Quest.

    The Quest ATR FTIR accessory uses easy-to-remove pucks with diamond, extended range diamond, Germanium, ZnSe, Silicon and Specular Reflectance crystals.

    • High throughput diamond
    • Extended wavelength diamond
    • ZnSe
    • Ge
    • Silicon
    • Specular Reflectance

    Each puck is made from hardened stainless steel and held in place on the accessory magnetically making them easily interchangeable without requiring additional alignment.

  • Fast liquid FTIR transmission accessory

    This new accessory greatly reduces the time and difficulty of liquid sample analysis.

    The Pearl™ is a high specification liquid transmission accessory designed for laboratory spectroscopic sample analysis in the Near and Mid-Infrared. The accessory contains Specac’s innovative Oyster Cell assembly which holds your sample in a horizontal plane.

    The design of the Pearl™ and Oyster Cell allows for fast and easy application of the sample, and for cleaning between samples.

    Analyze volatile liquids using transmission spectroscopy

    For more volatile samples, there is an injection access port in the top Oyster, so the cell assembly does not have to be fully opened. At all times, the sample can be viewed through the two windows, allowing the user to ensure that no bubbles have been trapped.

    The Oyster Cell can be cleaned very easily and quickly using tissue and an appropriate solvent.

  • XRF Pellets – high throughput, high quality

    The ApexTM Quick Release die makes XRF sample pellet preparation faster and more simple than ever before.

    The patented automatic pellet eject sleeve enables the release of the finished XRF pellet, without the requirement to reset the die at an inverted position, at the middle point of the sample pressing cycle.

    1. Following the compression of the sample, the release of the pellet results in the ejector tabs swivelling  and capturing the ejection sleeve in a release position.
    2. Re-applying the load enables the completed XRF sample pellet to be pushed clear of the die body and released for user collection.

    When used in conjunction with the Specac Atlas™ Autotouch automatic Hydraulic Press, the two  steps can be programmed into the laboratory press to automatically and seamlessly take place in sequence, without manual by the operator. 

    The ApexTM Die improves consistency by reducing space to human error, and increases throughput by speeding up pellet preparation. Less time is spent dissembling dies and awkwardly removing pellets. More time can be spent on analysis and increasing the quantity of pellets prepare.
