Spectrecology MZ5 mid infrared ATR spectrometer

The Ocean MZ5 is a miniature ATR MIR spectrometer with measurement capabilities from 1818-909 cm-1  (5.5-11 µm). This fully self-contained attenuated total reflectance instrument — including sample interface, light sources and detector — provides a compact, fast and scalable alternative to traditional FTIR spectroscopy. Applications for the Ocean MZ5 include chemical discrimination, food and flavorings analysis, environmental testing and scientific research.

Ocean MZ5 is ready to go out of the box and does not require any external equipment such as light sources or fibers. Ocean Mirror, the software that comes with this mini ATR MIR spectrometer, is designed for measuring absorbance and transmittance of liquids placed on the instrument’s crystal surface.

  • Self-contained – includes sample interface, light sources and detector
  • Economical – alternative to traditional FTIR spectroscopy
  • Rapid Testing – excellent choice for chemical discrimination, food and flavorings analysis, environmental testing and scientific research
  • Plug-and-Play – ready to go out of the box, does not require any external equipment such as light sources or fibers
