ChemDetect™ Analyzer

Culpeo® QCL-IR Liquid Analyzer is a new, next-generation liquid analyzer design that is the successor to Daylight’s ChemDetect Analyzer system. Building on the field-proven performance of ChemDetect, Culpeo incorporates the same, industry-leading noise performance and real-time analysis as ChemDetect, and adds turnkey operation and a host of other new features.

Product Details:

The ChemDetect™ Analyzer is a compact, intelligent spectrometer that uses the power of quantum cascade lasers to analyze and identify chemicals. It combines the latest high-speed, broadly tunable QCL technology with advanced, uncooled detection capability. An embedded computer is programmed with chemical identification algorithms for unmatched specificity and speed.

This versatile mid-IR spectrometer and chemical analyzer enables standoff detection or coupling into liquid, solid, and gas sample cells, including long path-length multipass cells, flow cells, and ATR probes. Its high speed and broad tuning range enable simultaneous detection of multiple target chemicals with ease. Benchtop, rack-mount, and portable ruggedized versions are available with ATR, open path, and gas cell sample interfaces.

The ChemDetect Analyzer offers the advantages of a turnkey system for measuring chemical concentrations yet is configurable for OEM use. It provides spectra you can trust from the moment you turn it on. The laser module includes a built-in reference detector, and a separate high-speed signal detector captures the beam after sample interrogation. An integrated controller and data acquisition module powers the laser and receives the reference and signal detector data while drawing only 5 watts of power for the entire system. This chemical analyzer is so portable that it can be taken to the sample site, whether terrestrial, airborne, or beyond.
