Micro-Deposition Improves Analysis
DiscovIR’s unique temperature controlled, vacuum deposition method ensures that results are accurate and reproducible. Eluted peaks are first deposited in a film on to a rotating IR transparent disc. Next, an infrared beam passes through each concentrated spot and the detector automatically collects spectral data.
Concentrates Analytes in Minimal Area
Cryogenic temperature control of the Sample Disc minimizes the area of the deposited analyte. This results in a thicker sample layer and therefore Higher Sensitivity of the absorbance spectrum.
- Micro-Deposition on Cryogenically-Cooled IR-transparent disc
- Unique, Proprietary LC interface
removes solvent interference
- Collects real-time IR spectrum
- On-line analysis
- No sample handling!
Revolutionary Desolvation Technology enables total flexibility with mobile phase solvents for GPC-FTIR. Solid phase transmission FTIR Spectra free from solvent interference are acquired continuously during the chromatography. The system is fully automated and compatible with autosamplers.
Complete solvent removal combined with controlled temperature cryogenic deposition minimizes band spreading and maintains the chromatographic resolution.

Retains Entire Chromatographic Run
The entire chromatographic run is applied as a solid deposit on the Sample Disc, preserving the resolution of the separation, therefore, the entire run is available to be scanned again in order to investigate subtle features and improve signal-to-noise.
The speed of the rotating Sample Disc can be adjusted to match concentration of the deposited sample.
