Axiom Analytical, Inc. Announces a New Retractable Diffuse Reflectance Probe for Near Infrared (NIR) Development and Process Analysis

TUSTIN, Calif. – Axiom Analytical, Inc. has announced the availability of its FDR-798 Near-IR manually retractable diffuse reflectance probe.  The new probe is designed for the contact analysis of optically scattering materials such as pharmaceutical powders, polymers, and food products.  It is provided with an integral hand operated retraction mechanism suitable for use with bioreactors and other small reaction vessels.  It includes a standard sanitary fitting and a flush chamber to allow periodic cleaning of the probe tip. Key characteristics of the new probe include high collection efficiency, low stray light, robust construction, and excellent chemical resistance.

The FDR-798 is the latest member of the company’s FDR-700 Series of diffuse reflectance probes which includes the previously announced FDR-755 Extruder Probe and FDR-795 on-line process probe.  The FDR-755 is configured for the spectroscopic analysis of materials such as polymers and food products during extrusion. The FDR-795 12.7 mm diameter probe is available in a wide range of lengths and with a choice of process fittings. The use of integral fiber-optic bundles with SMA 905 connectors allows FDR-700 Series probes to be remotely coupled to most near-IR and UV-visible spectrometers for laboratory development and on-line process analysis.
