The world’s most compact, high-accuracy spectrometer

The Agilent Cary 630 FTIR is a versatile analytical instrument used across a wide range of industries; from pharmaceutical and cosmetics producers to environmental testing. It’s patented and infrared ‘engine’ is as accurate (quantitatively and qualitatively) as full-sized laboratory instruments, but its modular configuration and wide array of sample modules make this performance available in a small, low cost and easy to use package. The project was a rapid 6 month, three-way collaboration between Cobalt and Agilent teams in the US and Australia.
