AccessATR: an economical, easy-to-use, single reflection ATR used in teaching labs. Students determine the structures of reaction products in undergraduate organic chemistry courses, and identify unknown compounds in analytical chemistry labs.

The AccessATRâ„¢ makes ATR FTIR spectroscopy accessible to everyone. It is perfect for quick and accurate ATR measurements of most samples and it is affordable.

The Seagullâ„¢ is a powerful attachment for examining numerous types of samples using a variety of reflection techniques. This unique accessory can be easily adapted for specular (external), ATR or diffuse reflection spectroscopy.

The VariGATR is a sensitive and powerful tool for studying ultra-thin films such as self-assembled monolayers (SAMs), Langmuir-Blodgett films, and other thin layers on reflective or high-refractive-index substrates such as gold and silicon. The VariGATR works in research applications in materials science, bioscience, synthetic organic chemistry, physical chemistry, and semiconductor studies.
