Nicolet™ iS20 FTIR Spectrometer

The Nicolet™ iS20 FTIR Spectrometer from Thermo Scientific™ enables laboratory productivity to be increased and high-quality spectral data to be obtained rapidly. With an integrated touch panel, users with any skill level can quickly analyze complex samples. A new multi-color LED scan bar provides users with instantaneous feedback on whether the instrument is in idle, alert, or collect mode.

With the spectral power of the Thermo Scientific™ LightDrive™ Optical Engine integrated into each instrument, users can determine unidentified contaminants, conduct failure analysis, and precisely analyze mixtures. The source, interferometer, and laser have a 10-year warranty that offers supreme peace of mind for several years.


The Nicolet iS10 FTIR Spectrometer is trusted by users across the globe and has set the benchmark for analytical FTIR instruments. Currently, the next generation Nicolet iS20 FTIR Spectrometer extends the limits of innovation to a new level. With its redesigned optical engine and contemporary industrial design, the Nicolet iS20 spectrometer makes the perfect combination of the Nicolet platform FTIR appreciated by users and the improvements they require.

Accurately Discern Multi-Component Samples: Advanced LightDrive optical engine technology offers improved spectral resolution (0.25 cm−1) and signal-to-noise ratios (50,000:1) to help find possible contaminants or characterize defects found in small amounts.

Improve Data Reproducibility: Advanced infrared source eliminates hot spot migration, leading to more reliable spectral data, specifically via an attenuated total reflectance (ATR) accessory.

Streamline Workflow Productivity: A visual feedback on instrument status (ready, scan, alert) is provided by multi-colored LED touch panel for superior productivity; System Performance Verification (SPV) ensures the reliability of daily results. The integrated touch panel enables the programs to be carried out rapidly.

Reduce Cost of Ownership: The source, laser, and interferometer have a warranty of 10 years and thus provide peace of mind; when compared to existing interferometer technology, the LightDrive interferometer offers a five-fold increase in relative lifespan, thereby limiting the need for replacements.

Share Data Anytime, Anywhere: With the cloud-enabled FTIR spectrometer, data can be uploaded to the Thermo Fisher Cloud. Students can upload, check, and share data from the instrument remotely with the help of the OMNIC Anywhere App on their Android, iOS device, PC, or Apple Computer. Free storage of 10 GB is given to all Thermo Fisher Cloud accounts.

Be Compliant, Be Sure: Fully automated validation test routines are available for IQ/OQ (installation and operational qualification), China Pharmacopeia (CP), Japanese Pharmacopeia (JP), European Pharmacopeia (Ph. Eur.), and the United States Pharmacopeia (USP); it also has 21 CFR Part 11 compliance and data security packages.

Easily Add New Capabilities: The spectrometer acknowledges Nicolet iN5 IR Microscope, TGA-IR module, Thermo Scientific™ Smart™ Accessories, and hundreds of commercially available third-party accessories.

Find More Unknowns: Award-winning Thermo Scientific™ OMNIC™ Software is a friendly interface that now comes enhanced with OMNIC Specta software, comprising a library of more than 9000 chemical spectra, which allow users to quickly identify unknowns with highly developed multi-component search routines.

Build Confidence with Unrivaled Support: Thermo Fisher Scientific’s Unity Lab Services and qualified dealer network (over 7000 service engineers and 1800 technical support personnel globally) offers service and support to maintain smooth running of the customer’s business or research project.

Applications: It finds application in various fields such as quality control QA/QC, polymers and plastics, analytical services, education, gemstone analysis, pharmaceuticals, and forensics.
