The award winning MATRIX™-F is a new generation of Fourier Transform Near Infrared (FT-NIR) spectrometer. It is the first industry hardened FT-NIR system that can directly withstand harsh environments. This instrument incorporates state-of-the-art optics for outstanding sensitivity and stability, in a compact package. Its innovative design provides consistent high quality results, less downtime, direct methods transfer and the possibility of new applications that less sensitive and precise instruments are incapable of. In addition, the same instrument can go directly from the lab to the factory, eliminating the need for a new instrument when your method is ready for integration into your process control system. Full support of industry standard communication protocols make integration simple.
MATRIX™-F is the complete solution for all your FT-NIR needs, from Raw Material Identification to Quality Control of your finished products. Utilizing the built-in and external multiplexer options up to 48 reactions can be monitored by a single instrument. A wide range of probe adaptations are available for determining analyte concentrations in liquid and emulsions in addition to powders and pellets.
The MATRIX™-F is also at home in the laboratory. It can be used as a standalone system for method development and then move directly into your process application. The MATRIX™-F and its peripherals are individually enclosed modules designed to easily fit into standard 19 inch racks and enclosures.
The MATRIX™-F was designed for reliability and easy maintenance. Individual consumable components are on pre-aligned mounts and can be quickly exchanged by the user without any realignment of the optics. Furthermore, all consumable items and electronics are located in separate compartments, and therefore can be exchanged without disturbing the sealed, desiccated optics area. On-line diagnostics monitor the performance of the electronics and consumable items and advise the user of a failing component. Instrument performance is validated with the click of a button using Bruker Optics’ Instrument Test Software in conjunction with the built-in Internal Validation Unit, assuring proper operation of the entire system. All of this means the instrument can be serviced quickly and be back in operation in record time, for minimal disruption of the manufacturing process.
