Keit Spectrometers believes in putting the power of FTIR spectroscopy onto the manufacturers’ production floor.


Keit’s microFTS® design is a Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrometer that is smaller, lighter and more rugged than any current system. Able to perform in extreme environments, the microFTS® was originally designed for space applications where these attributes are paramount. The microFTS® offers a new gold standard for real-time liquid-state analyses in the Pharmaceutical, Chemical, Oil & Gas, and Food & Beverage industries.


What’s different? The microFTS® has no moving parts, setting it apart from other FTIRs based on the Michelson interferometer. Unlike these devices, which tend to be large, heavy and vulnerable to shock and vibration, the microFTS® is compact, light-weight, and shock- and vibration-resistant making it ideal for use on the production floor. The novel design eliminates the need for remote sampling or fibre optic cables required in current systems.
