At Analytica 2014, Bruker today announced new product introductions and enhancements for improved performance and customer experience in research, industrial and applied markets.
These very latest innovations complement the wide range of product announcements that were just recently presented at Pittcon 2014 (www.bruker.com/news/pittcon/pr-pittcon-2014). Designed to increase sensitivity, improve specificity and maximize productivity, the new Bruker products introduced at Analytica 2014 include:
FTIR spectrometer TENSOR™ II:
The compact research-grade FTIR spectrometer TENSOR II replaces the very successful TENSOR 27/37. The TENSOR IIis well suited for advanced FTIR applications in R&D due to its high sensitivity and flexibility.
It is also useful in routine applications for QC and material verification due to its compact size and comfortable workflows. The high quality of theTENSOR II is not only expressed by its high specifications but also by the further extended life time of all components.
EM27/SUN spectrometer for atmospheric measurements:
The new compact spectrometer EM27/SUN for atmospheric measurements by solar absorption spectroscopy utilizes the innovative camera-based feedback system CAMTracker following the sun as light source.
The EM27/SUN provides a robust design, relatively low weight, and an intuitive user interface. It is portable and hence suited for long-term measurements in remote areas with little infrastructure.
Ascend™ Aeon 400 – 800 WB magnets:
Bruker is further expanding its proprietary, fully integrated, Aeon™ active Helium refrigeration option to wide-bore (WB) 89 mm magnets.
Four 800 MHz WB magnets with LHe reliquefaction, and without liquid nitrogen, have already been accepted at customer sites, and perform well.
This unique new large-format micro-X-ray fluorescence (micro-XRF) spectrometer provides a scan range up to 800 x 600 mm2 and scanning speed up to 100 mm/s. The instrument is designed to analyze the elemental composition of large objects on-site in a single run with spatial resolution between 100 and 500 µm.
With the M6 JETSTREAM, Bruker now serves applications from QA/QC in automotive, aerospace and other industries, to geological surveys for natural resources, to art and conservation.
The new multiscale X-ray nanotomograph SkyScan 2211 covers a wide range of object sizes and spatial resolutions in one single instrument. It opens unique possibilities for 3D imaging and exact modeling of geological materials in oil and gas exploration, composite materials, fuel cells and electronic assemblies.
The instrument allows scanning and 3D non-destructive reconstruction of internal microstructure of objects as large as 200 mm in diameter, as well as submicron resolution for small samples. The extremely fast hierarchical 3D reconstruction software speeds up imaging internal microstructures 10-100 times compared to traditional or GPU-accelerated micro-CT algorithms.
S2 RANGER™ with XFlash™ V5 LE:
Using the new XFlash V5 LE SDD detector, the S2 RANGER X-ray spectrometer achieves superb light element performance and analytical precision for applications in cement, minerals and mining, petrochemistry, and research.
With a larger detector area the spectrometer achieves higher sample throughput and lower detection limits. A further highlight is its light element performance from carbon upwards, and gaining a factor of 8 in intensity for sodium compared to traditional instruments.
Frank Laukien, Ph.D., President and CEO of Bruker Corporation, commented: "At Analytica 2014, we continue our Innovation with Integrity tradition to enable the success of our customers. With compact, easy-to-use, affordable, yet high performance products we gain access to broader markets and expand our presence in quality control, applied and industrial markets, while maintaining our excellent reputation in the scientific research community."
