Temperature and environmental control from < -195°C to 600°C, optimised for Infrared and FTIR systems



The FTIR600 stage has been adapted from our market leading high precision THMS600
stage to allow infra red analysis of samples from < -195°C up to 600°C covering all
applications from pharmaceutical to polymers on most benchtop IR microscope systems.
Alternative window materials such as Zinc Selenide and Barium Fluoride are also
available. Please contact us to find out about our full range of window materials.

The FTIR600 stage can be mounted horizontally for IR microscopy setups and vertically
for cabinet type IR spectroscopy. The silver block has a tapered hole to allow maximum
transmittance of IR without interference.
