Keit at IFPAC 2019: Demonstrating Innovation in Process FTIR

IFPAC 2019 Keit Booth 506 IRmadillo

Meet us at IFPAC 2019 (4-6 March) in North Bethesda, Maryland (Booth #506). We’ll be showcasing our compact, on-line mid-infrared spectrometer, the IRmadillo.  Learn more during our presentation on Tuesday 5th March at this leading process analytical chemistry meeting in the US focused on innovations and technology.

See Real-time Differentiation of  Sugars, Alcohols, and Acids

Right at our booth we’ll show how easily our IRmadillo real-time process analyser works to monitor chemical reactions  – from differentiation of multiple sugars, to determining alcohol and acid concentrations in a complex process. Get to talk to our Lead Application Scientist about the new models of probes adapted to different industrial chemical environments: from a diamond ATR suited to high pH environments to our high temperature probe, and a probe developed for sterilise-in-place (SIP) procedures.

On Wed., 01 November (8:30am) – During Session 6 “Process control, monitoring, PAT and new data analysis methods and tools”, Keit Application Scientist, Dr. Jonathon Speed, will be presenting the results of an independent comparison study of fermentation monitoring using four different spectroscopic techniques:

  • IRmadillo FTIR
  • Near-infrared (NIR)
  • Raman
  • and another process Mid-infrared (MIR-FTIR)

Also, on Mon., 30th October (12:35-12:45pm) Dan Wood, CEO, will present a brief overview of the innovation of this solid-state FTIR instrument during Monday’s Exhibitor Showcase.
