Bruker spectrometer offers FT-NIR Identification and quantitation in pharma applications

Bruker Corporation, a supplier of scientific instruments for molecular and materials research, has expanded its FT-NIR (Fourier Transform Near Infrared) product range with the introduction of the Tango spectrometer.

The firm’s Bruker Optik division, based in Ettlingen, Germany, says Tango is a robust, small footprint, easy to use benchtop system with touch-screen operation for routine users. It offers efficient and cost-effective analysis for the identification and quantification of constituents in a variety of applications in the pharmaceutical, chemical, food and feed industries.

The Tango is available in two versions – one for measuring solids in reflection and the other for measuring liquids in transmission.

The intuitive user interface of the Tango guides the operator through the workflow and new automated background measurements help untrained staff to operate the spectrometer without making errors.

The Tango’s housing and touch-screen monitor are robust and easy to clean when used in a laboratory and dusty environments.

The device is GMP and 21 CFR Part 11 compliant for working in regulated environments.

‘We believe that the new Tango has exactly what users require of FT-NIR spectrometers suitable for industrial use: robustness, high precision and straightforward operator guidance,’ said Urban Faeh, president of Bruker Optics.

The Tango complements Bruker’s FT-NIR product range, consisting of the MPA multi-purpose analyser, which offers everything needed for the analysis of liquids, solids, powders and tablets, as well as the MATRIX-F process spectrometer for use in harsh environments.
