Thermo Scientific TGA-IR module enhances materials characterization for users of Thermo Scientific FT-IR spectrometers

Scientists involved in materials characterization, process validation and product failure analysis can gather more valuable data by combining two powerful analytical techniques. The new Thermo Scientific TGA-IR Module provides users of Thermo Scientific FT-IR spectrometers with enhanced performance when combining Thermal Gravimetric Analysis (TGA) and FT-IR spectroscopy.

The TGA-IR Module features a rugged gas cell optimized for the flow characteristics of a TGA and a precise system of temperature control.. The Thermo Scientific OMNIC Mercury TGA software provides powerful tools to simplify what was once a complex task of extracting information from a TGA-IR experiment substantially increasing productivity. The combination of the TGA-IR Module with the Mercury TGA software allows scientists working with polymers, pharmaceuticals, rubber and other materials to deformulate their samples with speed and confidence.
