(10kg)), and industry-leading Thermo Scientific™ OMNIC™ software, the Nicolet iS5 FT-IR Spectrometer uses the same field-proven FT-IR technology found on other Thermo Scientific Nicolet FT-IR spectrometer models.

The Nicolet iS5 FT-IR Spectrometer Features

Durable Design
The Nicolet iS5 FT-IR Spectrometer is designed to provide trouble-free operation in the most challenging environments.

  • Field-proven optics encased in a sturdy magnesium-alloy frame
  • Thermally-controlled diode laser provides years of worry-free use
  • User-accessible parts minimize service costs
  • Withstands a wide range of temperature and humidity conditions
  • Vibration, electromagnetic interference (EMI), dust, and tilt were considered in the design
  • Magnesium-alloy construction provides excellent mechanical characteristics for stiffness, thermal properties, vibrational dampening and reduced weight

Easy Maintenance

Replacing the IR source or desiccant in your spectrometer does not require a service call or even opening up the instrument.
