Webinar | New inline mid-IR liquid analyzers with sensitivity beyond the ATR limit

Mid-IR spectrometry is a powerful and well-known analytical technique that can be used to measure isolated analytes and complex mixtures in liquid phase. However, until now, mid-IR analysis has been precluded from the list of workhorse liquid chromatography techniques because of the poor sensitivity of FTIR instruments and their inability to probe beyond the first few microns of the liquid surface.

In this webinar, we will introduce an entirely new class of high-sensitivity inline mid-IR liquid analyzers. Based on ultra-high-brightness tunable quantum cascade lasers (QCL), these analyzers are enabling routine, quantitative chemical analysis with analyte sensitivities going well-beyond the FTIR-ATR limit. This new platform technology also offers fast (10 Hz) scan rates, a large dynamic range (> 104) and an ability to easily measure small sample volumes (< 10 μL). We will present the physical operating principles of these new analyzers and provide several application examples including their use in fractionated HPLC measurements and chemical and biologic reactor monitoring.
