Product introduction
ALPHA II - Platinum FT-IR Spectrometer

with Platinum Diamond-ATR QuickSnap Sampling Module

ALPHA II is a very compact FT-IR spectrometer for quick, easy and reliable IR-analysis. The design of its hard- and software is highly integrated for an intuitive and comfortable operation. All spectrometer components are built for continuous availability and a long life time. Bruker’s permanently aligned RockSolid interferometer and the reliable diode laser guarantee an accurate and precise data acquisition. Due to the CenterGlow IR-source technology and a temperature controlled DTGS detector the ALPHA II provides a constantly high performance, independent from ambient temperature and for many years. The need for maintenance is minimized and running costs are kept very low due to the long life time of the relevant components like interferometer, IR-source  and laser.


The ALPHA II - Platinum includes the Platinum-ATR Universal sampling module that facilitates the analysis of virtually any liquid and solid sample, independent from its shape and composition. For most samples the measurement is performed without sample preparation and without the need of any consumables. To record the IR-spectrum any sample just has to be brought into contact with the ATR measurement interface. Next to powders and films the universal high pressure clamp even allows the analysis of particularly hard specimen, like polymer pellets/ granules, and variably shaped parts. Measurement times are typically below 1 minute. The measurement interface of the ALPHA-Platinum is a diamond ATR crystal with a very high mechanical and chemical robustness. Therefore, the Platinum-ATR sampling module has a lifetime of >10 years.


A wide range of QuickSnap sampling modules is available for the ALPHA II, providing a perfectly matching measurement setup for a large variety of samples and applications. With the push of a button, the exchange of the sampling modules is performed quickly and easily. The PermaSure function automatically recognizes each change of the setup and performs a quick self-test ensuring a proper instrument performance. Suitable measurement settings for the used configuration are automatically loaded. The PerformanceGuard continuously monitors the spectrometer electronics as well as optical and mechanical components to permanently assure the correct functioning of the complete instrument.


OPUS provides the right software user interface for the most efficient FTIR-analysis. From the measurement via evaluation to the final analysis report the user is guided in few steps through the analytical workflow. Therefore, ALPHA II is easily operated even by spectroscopic inexperienced personnel.  Powerful but easy to use functions for verifying and identifying IR-spectra and performing quantitative analysis are included in the software.

The option to use the ALPHA II with the OPUS-TOUCH software on an integrated touch panel computer makes your daily routine analysis even more simple. Moreover, the footprint of the complete system is reduced to the one of a laptop.

The ALPHA II fulfills all requirements to be used according to the demands of Good Laboratory Practice (GLP). Further validation options are available allowing operation of the ALPHA II in full compliance to cGMP/GMP, US, European and Japanese Pharmacopeia and 21 CFR Part11.


The included Bruker ATR-IR library "BPAD" is a helpful tool for identification of unknown material in daily routine analysis. The library includes a collection of mid-IR reference spectra of basic polymers and plastics.

With OPUS-TOUCH typical quality control and material verification applications are performed using a dedicated workflow that requires a minimal number of steps from sample measurement to analysis report. Advanced users have the option for performing a customized measurement with full flexibility. Also time resolved measurements by Rapid Scan and StepScan are supported.


The built-in spectra viewer offers the data evaluation and data processing functions which are needed for in-depth analysis of your IR-data. Materials are verified by the Quick Compare spectra comparison method that provides validated and unmistakable results. Spectrum search and mixture analysis using commercial or your own libraries identify any unknown sample. Components in complex materials are quantified by Lambert-Beer or Partial Least Squares calibrations. For spectrum characterization peak-picking can be applied on the original spectrum or it’s derivative, in case overlapping bands need to be separated. Further available data processing functions are reference-free atmospheric compensation, averaging and normalization. Base line correction and spectra subtraction can be performed automated or interactively.


All data, including manipulation and evaluation results, are stored in in the built-in data archive. A self-adapting analysis report generates a perfect overview about your evaluation results. Any measurement, data processing and evaluation, as well as administrative action is registered in a global audit trail.


OPUS-TOUCH provides an indicator that informs the user about the current overall system status. Detail info from the online diagnostics of all vital spectrometer components is shown in the device monitor. It also gives an overview about the validity of the spectrometer’s operational and performance qualification (OQ, PQ). If needed the fully automated instrument test routines are directly started.
