Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR)
FTIR Spectroscopy is a versatile analytical technique capable of providing a chemical fingerprint for a wide range of inorganic and organic samples.
FTIR Spectroscopy can identify, characterise and qualify a large variety of samples from biological to clay minerals. It excels at tackling ‘problem samples’, identifying unknowns or confirming identification based on a reference material.
FTIR can be applied on many samples from many different industries.
Paints, plastics, coatings.
Engine internal deposits, engineering components, failed/degraded rubber seals.

The James Hutton Institute analytical laboratories operate to the standards required by UKAS accreditation and many of our routine techniques are accredited. A full accreditation schedule can be found at www.UKAS.com
Our ability to perform a huge variety of techniques means that in general a one-off analysis may not be accredited but our total commitment to high standards ensures it will be carried out to the exacting specifications that accreditation requires.
