An optional flat top plate configuration is available if you intend to sample a lot of powders and films. The flat top plate enhances the contact between the surface of the ATR crystal and the sample when used in conjunction with the optional clamp that allows you to apply pressure to the sample. A powder press is also available to fit the trough top plate configuration for powder sampling.
ICL’s Basics™ Horizontal ATR is a high performance accessory that is easy on your lab budget. In its standard configuration the sample is placed into a large trough sample area that can be used for analysis of liquids, pastes, films and powders. Sample preparation is minimal. You simply place your sample into the easily removable top plate so that it sits in the trough above the ATR crystal. An 80 x 10 x 4mm ZnSe crystal is standard, but Ge is available as an option.
