Thermo Nicolet Smart ARK For Research Grade, Multiple-Reﬂection ATR Analysis
The Thermo Scientiﬁc Smart ARK is a stable, rugged, high energy throughput HATR. The Smart ARK™ is the ideal choice for both research and analytical test labora tories. It is well suited for high level accurate quantitative and qualitative analy ses because sample preparation is not necessary. The Smart ARK’s high performance is a result of high optical collection efﬁciency and unique patented crystal design.
• Quantitative and qualitative measurements
To facilitate changing crystal angles or material (and subsequently the depth of penetration into a sample or effective pathlength) our patented crystal design ensures high energy throughput without the need for mechanical or manual optical alignment of the accessory. It is extremely easy to change crystal plates and angles; there is no need to worry about moving mirrors and mechanical parts failing. The crystal design ensures reproducibility and reliability with every measurement, which is especially critical when transferring analytical methods between laboratories with multiple spectrometers. The
Smart ARK is available with the widest variety of crystal plates in different materials and angles including 30, 40, 50, 55, 60, and 70 degrees (dependent on material).
