ABB unveiled its MB3000-PH FT-IR spectrometer for the pharmaceutical and life sciences industries at PITTCON 2009. The MB3000-PH is designed for QA/QC, formulation, research, and development laboratories. It features Horizon MB FTIR software and combines all the attributes of a research grade instrument, while maintaining a minimal cost of ownership, according to ABB. The MB3000’s new design and metrology allow the user to operate the instrument without any scheduled maintenance for a period of 10 years, according to the company.
Whether operating in QA/QC, analytical development, R&D, or formulation laboratory, users can enjoy the simplicity and ease of use of the MB3000-PH. Thanks to its universal sampling compartment, the analyzer is highly versatile and accommodates a wide range of accessories. The Horizon MB FTIR software suite offers an intuitive and user-friendly interface allowing immediate adaptation for new users, according to the company.
ABB engineers have paid great attention to ensure that the MB3000-PH delivers the high-quality type of spectra that have contributed to the world-class reputation of ABB analyzers over the years, as illustrated by the outstanding signal-to-noise specifications of the MB3000-PH: typically 50000:1 RMS noise (60s, 4 cm-1), according to ABB.
