IRtron™ In-Compartment FTIR Microscope

FTIR Spectrometers



Irtron™ In-Compartment Microscope for the FT/IR-4000/6000 Series

The Irtron™ in-compartment microscopy system is designed to provide affordable analysis of microscopic samples.

The Irtron™ can be operated with the integrated touch panel or via a PC using the Spectra ManagerTM II software interface.

  • Transmittance, reflectance and ATR (option) measurement modes
  • DLATGS, MCT or NIR optimized detector
  • Unique SmartMonitorTM function allows sample observation during spectrum preview
  • Five inch high resolution colour TFT LCD monitor for sample observation
  • Optional sampling accessories for liquid and powder samples
  • Affordable, easy-to-use microscopy system

With the high performance features of an external FT-IR microscope accessory. The Irtron™ offers unprecedented convenience and ease of use, compatible with the JASCO FT/IR-4000 and 6000 Series FT-IR instruments.  The state-of-the-art optical design guarantees high throughput for highly sensitive measurements of samples down to 20 microns. The sample is observed with the integrated color CCD camera and 5 inch TFT color LCD monitor. JASCO's unique ATOS (Aperture Through Optical System) provides simultaneous viewing of the sample image and sampling location specified by the aperture. The ATOS combined with the SmartMonitorTM feature allows observation of the sample while collecting spectra in real-time using the monitor mode.


JASCO's unique SmartMonitorTM function allows sample observation during preview of sample spectra. This function allows selection of the best sample position while monitoring the IR spectrum in real time.


An optional purge casing can be used to eliminate interference from CO2 and water vapor bands.

Pressure sensor

An optional pressure sensor to protect the ATR objective is also available.

ATR objective

Three types of optional ATR objectives are available, selecting from ZnSe, Ge, and Diamond crystal elements.

Liquid sample holder

The liquid sample holder includes three standard spacers; 0.1, 0.05 and 0.025 mm pathlengths for liquid sample analyses.

Powder sample holder

The powder sample holder can be used for diffuse reflectance measurements of powdered samples mixed with KBr. Up to five samples can be loaded onto the holder.
