Discover the capabilities of diamond ATR in the pharmaceutical industry

Compliance with pharmacopoeia regulations requires that all pharmacological substances have IR spectral data spanning 4000–400 cm–1, the full range usually obtainable on commercially available mid-IR spectrometer systems.

Diamond attenuated total reflection (ATR) accessories like the Quest™ ATR can provide spectral data over the range required by pharmacopoeia. They can replace cumbersome and time-consuming methods employed traditionally for liquid and solid sample analysis in FTIR, such as making KBr pellets or using salt cells.
