Thermo Scientific Nicolet iS50 FT-IR Spectrometer with built-in Diamond ATR

FT-IR is an analytical technique used to identify mainly organic materials. Absorption spectra provide information about the chemical bonds and molecular structure of a material.

The FT-IR spectrum is equivalent to the “fingerprint” of the material and can be compared with FT-IR spectra in the library to identify a particular material.

Our system is equipped with Nic-Plan IR Microscope. It is a very powerful technique to characterize the chemical composition of minute sample such as fiber or oil residue. The testing method of FT-IR measurement can be non-destructive, the sample can therefore be used for subsequent
analytical testing as required.

Key Features

  • High sensitivity MGT-A Detector
  • Interchangeable accessories like VATR, Liq-Cell, ZnSe compression Cell
  • Nicloet Nic-Plan Microscope – For the analysis of minute amounts of contaminants
  • A few examples of common materials identified by FT-IR are: Cleansers and Detergents, Paints, Oils, Paper, Gel, Glue, Epoxy, Resin, Fibers (Synthetic and Natural), Plastics and Elastomers (rubber)


ALS Pathumthani provide services for vast industrials such as Data Storage, Semiconductor, Electronics, Automotive, Polymer, Telecommunications and Industrial Products. Our FT-IR can generally be classified into two categories.

  • Qualitative analysis –to identify the sample
  • Quantitative analysis – where the intensity of an absorption is related to the concentration of the component
