Thermo Fisher Scientific’s FT-IR sampling solutions are designed to provide a cost-effective approach to characterising the chemical composition of biological systems, such as lipids, in algae.

The FT-IR-based automated sampling techniques were originally created for pharmaceutical high-throughput screening systems.

They combine instrumentation, accessories and software said to greatly increase the number of biological samples that can be analysed with automated spectroscopy.

Users can choose from four configurations that focus on ATR spectroscopy, transmission spectroscopy, reflectance spectroscopy and infrared microscopy to suit varying analytical requirements and sample preparation methods.

Thermo Fisher offers a complete range of FT-IR sampling techniques, forming a basis for developing rapid screening methods to determine the lipid content of microbiological species intended for biofuels.

A selection of the company’s infrared sampling techniques can be used to characterise the chemical composition of algae.

A combination of the Thermo Scientific Nicolet iS10 FT-IR spectrometer configured with a Smart iTR diamond accessory or Smart OMNI-transmission accessory can be used to obtain spectra from dried algae.

The Thermo Scientific Nicolet 6700 FT-IR system, equipped with an automated well plate reader and the Thermo Scientific OMNIC Array Automation software, analyses multiple samples in reflectance studies.

According to the company, reliable infrared microscope transmission data can be obtained using its Nicolet 6700 and a Continuum infrared microscope configured with an automated X,Y stage.
