Nicolet™ iS20 FTIR Spectrometer

With the Thermo Scientific™ Nicolet™ iS20 FTIR Spectrometer, laboratory productivity can be maximized and high-quality spectral data can be quickly collected. An integrated touch panel allows users possessing any skill level to rapidly examine challenging samples, and a new multi-color LED scan bar gives users instant feedback on whether the instrument is in collect, idle, or alert mode.

Ascertain unidentified contaminants, perform failure analysis, and accurately examine mixtures with the spectral power of the Thermo Scientific™ LightDrive™ Optical Engine integrated into each instrument. A 10 year warranty on the source, interferometer, and laser provide unrivaled peace of mind for many years.


Trusted by users worldwide, the Nicolet iS10 FTIR Spectrometer set the standard for analytical FTIR instruments. Now, the next generation Nicolet iS20 FTIR Spectrometer pushes the boundaries of innovation to a new level. With its redesigned optical engine and contemporary industrial design, the Nicolet iS20 spectrometer creates the ideal combination of the Nicolet platform FTIR users valued with the enhancements they need.

Accurately discern multi-component samples: Advanced LightDrive optical engine technology provides higher spectral resolution (0.25 cm-1) and single-to-noise ratios (50,000:1) to help identify possible contaminants or characterize defects present in small quantities.

Improve data reproducibility: Advanced infrared source removes hot spot migration, resulting in more reliable spectral data, particularly through an attenuated total reflectance (ATR) accessory.

Streamline workflow productivity: Multi-colored LED touch panel offers visual feedback on instrument status for better productivity (ready, scan, alert); System Performance Verification (SPV) guarantees day-to-day results can be trusted. Use the integrated touch panel to quickly execute programs.

Reduce cost of ownership: 10-year warranty on the source, interferometer, and laser offers peace of mind; the LightDrive interferometer offers a five-fold increase in relative lifetime over existing interferometer technology, reducing the need for replacements.

Share data anytime, anywhere: Data can be uploaded to the Thermo Fisher Cloud using this cloud-enabled FTIR spectrometer. Students can upload, examine, and share data away from the instrument using the OMNIC Anywhere App on their PC, Android, Apple Computer, or iOS device. All Thermo Fisher Cloud accounts are provided with 10 GB of free storage.

Be compliant, be sure: Completely automated validation test routines are available for IQ/OQ (installation and operational qualification), European Pharmacopeia (Ph. Eur.), Japanese Pharmacopeia (JP), United States Pharmacopeia (USP), and China Pharmacopeia (CP); 21 CFR Part 11 compliance and data security packages are available.

Easily add new capabilities: The spectrometer recognizes Thermo Scientific™ Smart™ Accessories, TGA-IR module, Nicolet iN5 IR Microscope and hundreds of commercially available third-party accessories.

Find more unknowns: Award-winning Thermo Scientific™ OMNIC™ Software is a familiar interface that presently comes improved with OMNIC Specta software, including a library of >9,000 chemical spectra, so that users can rapidly identify unknowns with advanced multi-component search routines.

Build confidence with unrivaled support: Maintain smooth running of your business or research project with service and support that Thermo Fisher Scientific’s Unity Lab Services and qualified dealer network can provide (more than 7,000 service engineers and 1,800 technical support personnel internationally).

Applications: Polymers and Plastics; Quality Control QA/QC; Education; Analytical Services; Forensics; Gemstone Analysis; and Pharmaceuticals.
