Quest ATR Accessory
The Quest ATR Accessory is a performance single-reflection ATR accessory designed for laboratory spectroscopic sample analysis in the mid- and far-infrared.
With innovative optical design and durable monolithic diamond ATR crystal option, this sets the benchmark in performance and value for ATR spectroscopy.
High-throughput single reflection ATR.
Interchangeable crystal pucks.
Pressure tower for repeatable load application.
All-reflective optics for wide spectral range.
Interchangeable ATR-FTIR crystal pucks
Various interchangeable ATR crystal pucks are available for the Quest.
- High throughput diamond
- Extended wavelength diamond
- Specular Reflectance
|Material||Range (cm-1)||Refractive index||Depth of penetration* (µm)|

|Arrow™ silicon wafer|| |
The Heated Puck enables high temperature measurements up to 110 °C, perfect for analysis of phase changes in soaps, food stuffs, and other multi-phase systems. A highly sensitive 4-wire RTD sensor is used for temperature measurement, while control is provided by a compact USB interface and a free PC-based software app.
The heated puck is available with either a high throughput diamond ATR crystal or a ZnSe crystal.
Pucks for easy liquid sampling
Liquid pucks have a raised surface around the crystal, forming a bowl to confine samples on the crystal. This is useful for samples with low viscosity or prone to evaporation. The bowl has a volume of approximately 100 µL.
The pressure tower
The Quest™ has a pressure tower which allows a clamping load of up to 40 lbs to be applied to solid samples to ensure full contact with the crystal. The tower gives an audible click when its pre-set load has been reached.
The flow anvil enables samples to be flowed over the crystal at low flow rates and low pressures using a syringe. It has an internal volume of 28 µL and is held in place with the pressure tower.
Compatible with measurement standards
