“Hi Folks, Nick from Richmond Scientific here talking again about Infrared Spectroscopy. So, I don’t know whether you can see this on here, but it’s on this Perkin Elmer instrument, you can see we’ve just run a sample of polystyrene. You can see there – 3027 there, so that is absolutely what you’d expect from polystyrene. Infrared spectroscopy can be used in a wide variety of different areas. Forensics is a growth area at the moment, food and drink, energy, life sciences, lubricants and oils, paints and pigments. So, any number of different applications.
And of course advantages – The fact that it’s non-destructive, it’s quick, it’s future proof so it’s never going to change particularly, and there’s a wide range of applications. So it’s a really good technique to use within the lab as an analytical tool.”
