Description Specifications Software Applications

FTIR spectrometer with diamond tipped ATR immersion probe for reaction monitoring.

A comprehensive and intuitive package, the MB-Rx features a number of integrated software modules that include all of the functions required for collecting and analyzing real-time data generated during chemical experiments. The Reaction Configuration Wizard takes the user through the critical steps of the experiment set-up process. The system can generate multiple real-time trends related to spectral features or chemical properties. Experiments can be modified “on the fly” using the full-featured main reaction interface. At the end of a reaction, the experiment data can be saved and reprocessed off-line using a variety of pre-treatments in order to optimize a reaction.
