First maintenance-free FT-IR analyzer
Designed by Dr. Henry Buijs.
The MB3000 was developed by Dr. Henry Buijs, one of the founders of Bomem and a world-renowned expert recognized for his applied research in spectroscopy. The MB3000 is the result of over 40 years of experience in the aerospace, academic, chemical, pharmaceutical and petrochemical industries. It is the successor to the FTLA2000 spectrometer, also developed by Dr. Buijs and marketed by Bomem inc. since 1985.
With a vertical, space-efficient design, the MB3000 optimizes laboratory workspace and facilitates access to internal components.
The MB3000 contains fixed components that do not wear out with use, meaning no components to replace or adjust. With the MB3000, the HeNe LASER is replaced by a solid state laser.
All optics are non-hygroscopic. Purging is not required for protection of optics.
To maximize reliability, the source is operated so as to provide a 10-year expected lifetime.
