Infra Lum FT08

Our new FT mid-IR spectrometer InfraLUM FT-08 has been designed basing on our extensive R&D and expertise in the IR spectroscopy (infrared spectroscopy). This multipurpose and easy-to-operate instrument provides a well suited option for various analytical laboratories. The high-quality misalignment-proof optics, high-sensitivity DLATGS detector, and a wide variety of accessories ensure the users’ absolute confidence in the high accuracy of the measurement data and make it an ideal tool for routine measurements at low inventory investment and running costs.


The instrument is operated by SpectraLUM software run under Windows environment, which provides simple control and allows even unskilled personnel to easily master the instrument operation.

All major functions, such as peak identification, derivative quantification, quantitative calibrations creation, etc., can easily be performed with SpectraLUM software. Library search module allows to plug spectra libraries and to create own user’s libraries.


Is based on the measuring IR spectra using Fourier transform technique.
