Versatile FT-IR Laboratory Spectrometer
The ABB MB3000 is the most reliable FT-IR laboratory analyser in the market with the lowest cost of ownership. Combined with the intuitive Horizon MBTM FTIR software, the MB3000 will facilitate acquisition, processing and analysis of samples.
Easy to use and maintenance free, it provides constant analysis results for years to come. The MB3000 offers ease of use, reliability and constant results in order to address the concerns of lab users.
Designed by Dr. Henry Buijs.
The MB3000 was developed by Dr. Henry Buijs, one of the founders of Bomem and a world-renowned expert recognized for his applied research in spectroscopy.
With a vertical, space-efficient design, the MB3000 optimizes laboratory workspace and facilitates access to internal components.
The MB3000 is the result of over 35 years of experience in the aerospace, academic, chemical, pharmaceutical and petrochemical industries. It is the successor to the FTLA2000 spectrometer, also developed by Dr. Buijs and marketed by Bomem inc. since 1985.
The MB3000 contains fixed components that do not wear out with use, meaning no components to replace or adjust. With the MB3000, the HeNe LASER is replaced by a solid state laser. All optics are non-hygroscopic. Purging is not required for protection of optics.
To maximize reliability, the source is operated so as to provide a 10-year expected lifetime.
Combined with the intuitive Horizon MBTM FT-IR software, the MB3000 will facilitate acquisition, processing and the analysis of samples. The Horizon MBTM software handles a number of spectral formats in native form and also has a large number of Import and Export options. Data conversion is no longer a problem.
