The HTS 250 FT-NIR autosampling system provides high capacity, high throughput analysis of ground, pelleted or solid samples using Bruker Optics’ Tango or Matrix-I FT-NIR spectrometers. The 250 sample capacity of the HTS-250, coupled with the capability to remove and reload as samples on each tray have been measured, allows continuous sample measurement throughout the day, and unattended overnight operation. Sample throughput (using typical FT-NIR measurement parameters) of more than 60 samples per hour in continuous operation greatly enhances the number of samples that can be measured in Corporate Central Laboratories, and in high volume contract laboratory operations. Smart Sample Tracking tm insures that each sample’s identity is fully maintained in the measurement and recording process, and is fully independent of the sample’s position in the autosampler. SST entirely eliminates the need to rigidly sequence samples to correlate spectral and quantitative results with the correct sample identification.
