FT-NIR Spectrometers

Bruker Optics

Bruker Optics' range of Fourier transform near-infrared (FT-NIR) spectrometers simplify near-infrared (NIR) analysis, assist with quality assurance (QA) / quality control (QC) work, and have a small footprint.


TANGO has exactly what users require of an FT-NIR spectrometer suitable for industrial use: robustness, high-precision and straightforward operator guidance.

Key features include:

  • Proven FT-NIR technology by Bruker
  • Easy-to-use touchscreen operation
  • Low cost of ownership thanks to high-quality components with long lifetime
  • Robust and precise optics
  • Direct calibration transfer to and from all Bruker Optics FT-NIR spectrometers

TANGO provides fast measurements for high sample throughput, simultaneous evaluation of different components and an intuitive handling without the need for expertise training. It simplifies the NIR analysis and offers maximum security of the results. It delivers reliable results wherever highest demands are made on raw materials, as well as intermediate and finished products and a rapid measurement at low-cost must be ensured.


The FT-NIR spectrometer MPA II is designed to meet the demands of today’s and tomorrow’s quality control. It combines outstanding flexibility and high-performance with an easy-to-operate interface.

Key features include:

  • Full line of sample presentation options for all NIR applications
  • Software-controlled accessory selection, no manual exchange required
  • Low cost of ownership thanks to high-quality components with long lifetime
  • Easy calibration transfer to other Bruker lab, at-line or process spectrometers
  • Fully current good manufacturing practices (cGMP) and 21 CFR Part 11 compliant, supports validation according to US Pharmacopoeia (USP) 1119 and European Pharmacopoeia (Ph.Eur) 2.2.40

MPA II offers everything you need for the analysis of liquids, semi-solids, solids, powders and tablets. With powerful accessories such as the automated 30-position sample wheel for vials and tablets, the sample rotator for the integrating sphere and many different fibre probes, you will achieve high sample throughput with excellent precision.

The MPA II incorporates state-of-the-art optics for outstanding sensitivity and stability, a precondition for less downtime and outstanding reliability.


The award winning MATRIX-F is the first industry hardened FT-NIR system that can directly withstand harsh environments.

This instrument incorporates state-of-the-art optics for outstanding sensitivity and stability, in a compact package. Its innovative design provides consistent high-quality results, less downtime and direct method transfer.

The MATRIX-F is one of the only FT-NIR spectrometers that can measure material in contact and contactless with just one instrument using light fibre technology. Difficult-to-reach measurement points can be accessed by robust fibre optic probes or measurement heads, while the MATRIX-F is positioned, such as in an analysis house.


TANDEM is a fully automatic online process analytical technology (PAT) tool that allows the collection of process data and control of the tablet compression process.

The system provides both physical and chemical characteristics of pharmaceutical tablets such as weight, thickness, hardness and NIR content uniformity analysis.

The regulatory authorities require the accurate analysis of finished pharmaceutical goods to confirm the products’ content uniformity and physical characteristics. The TANDEM can measure up to 300 tablets per batch instead of ten by high-potency liquid chromatography (HPLC), making it one of the leading technologies available on the market for US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved real-time release (RTR).

FTIR / FT-NIR process spectrometers


MATRIX-MF is a rugged and a compact spectrometer that can be fibre optically coupled to measure chemical reactions in laboratory and/or process environments.

It expands the proven MATRIX series product line utilising the information-rich mid-IR region for use in both laboratory and process environments. The MATRIX-MF is a process ready FTIR spectrometer that is ideal for real-time monitoring and analysis of chemical and biological reactions. The MATRIX series’ award-winning design protects the optics in a dedicated sealed compartment. Although the instrument is designed for a process environment, its small footprint can also make it an ideal instrument for laboratory-based applications.
