Bruker has launched ALPHA II – the Second Generation of the World’s Most Popular Compact FTIR System. The system is specifically developed for Industrial Quality Control, Applied Markets, and Chemical Analysis.
ALPHA II System
The latest generation of the ALPHA series of compact FTIR spectrometers, the ALPHA II system features fully-automated test routines for validation concerning performance validation (PQ) and operational qualification (OQ) as well as innovations in high quality IR source technology and temperature-stabilized detector. The ALPHA II now comes with an industrial grade optional touch panel PC and OPUS-TOUCH – a touchscreen software for easy and highly intuitive use and features build-in routine application workflows.
Bruker’s CenterGlow™ Technology
The ALPHA II system includes a number of innovations which further enhance its technical specifications and performance. It is fitted with an IR-source that uses Bruker’s CenterGlow™ technology, ensuring a constantly high intensity, and a life-time of no less than 5 years. The CenterGlow™ technology optimizes the site of the glowing area within the source to increase the light flux. The ALPHA II’s detector is temperature-stabilized to ensure excellent robustness of the system against ambient temperature changes.
The wide range of plug and play QuickSnap™ sampling modules enables the ALPHA II to be adapted to virtually any measurement scenario. For more sophisticated applications, the extended capabilities of the OPUS software is available, than can be applied to Brukers’ complete range of FT-NIR, FTIR, and Raman products.
In addition, performance readiness is automatically ensured through permanent checks of the involved components and occasionally conducted test measurements validating the specification of the Bruker ALPHA II system. For regulated pharmaceutical labs, the ALPHA II system is integrated with fully-automated test routines for validation concerning performance validation (PQ) and operational qualification (OQ). The OPUS software complies with 21CFRp11, and validation in accordance with the US, European and Japanese Pharmacopeia using integrated NIST traceable standards (optionally available). Thanks to the compact footprint of a lab book, it provides a perfect fit for teaching laboratories and class rooms.
