Infrared Spectroscopy: FT-IR Testing & Analysis

FT-IR Testing

Why Use FTIR Analysis?:

FTIR testing services help as a great first step in a product analysis.  This technique helps identify and characterize the main ingredients within a sample.  Generally used for organic samples, the absorbance spectrum created is analyzed against Avomeen’s expansive reference database to identify which chemical family a samples components fit within.

How It Works:

Avomeen utilizes FT-IR analysis & technology to obtain molecular fingerprints of unknown compounds, using transmittance measurements captured after firing an infrared laser beam at sample compounds. Unknown fingerprints are then searched against a database of over 236,000 known FT-IR spectra in order to develop a conclusive identification.

Avomeen’s Instrumentation:

Avomeen’s state-of-the-art PerkinElmer Spectrum 65 FT-IR is equipped with an Attenuated Total Reflectance (ATR) accessory, which allows our scientists to use diamond cell technology to test solid or liquid samples in their natural state at much lower sample sizes.  Our scientists can develop a custom designed project using an infrared spectroscopy analysis along with a range of other methods and instrumentation to help solve your analytical needs.

Case StudyProduct Failure Analysis Solved Using FT-IR Testing.

Industry: Food and Beverage Testing

Problem: Plastic film in beer

Solution: Consumers found a plastic film floating on top of the beer as they opened beer cans. Utilizing a FT-IR analysis was found to be chemically similar to the can coating. Analysis revealed incomplete curing of the protective plastic film, which caused adhesion failure and release of the coated film. Adjustment of the temperature of the curing step solved the problem to the client’s satisfaction.
