Choosing the best possible sampling method is crucial when solving a specific analysis task. With the MPA II, you have a complete solution at hand for your daily QA/QC work, but also for sophisticated method development studies. Initially it is often not obvious which sampling method is the best. With the MPA II, simply try out several methods choose the best option for you. The possibilities are endless, and due to the modular design of the MPA II, the instrument can easily be adapted to your needs. The robustness of the instrument allows it to be used in the laboratory and factory floor.

The possibilities are endless, and due to the modular design of the MPA II, the instrument can easily be adapted to your needs. The robustness of the instrument allows it to be used in the laboratory and factory floor. It can even be placed on a utility cart for mobile applications.
Customizable workspaces as well as easy measurement modes which guide you through the setup of analytical methods are standard in the OPUS spectroscopy software. Measurements can be started with a mouse click or at the touch of a button.
The smart display informs the user about the instrument status and the measurement. These factors make the operation of the instrument and the software so easy that even untrained personnel can operate the MPA II spectrometer from day one.
The MPA II incorporates state-of-the-art optical parts for outstanding performance and stability:
All optical components installed in the MPA II are permanently monitored by the online diagnostic system, which makes sure that your spectrometer operates correctly. Whenever a component is out of specification, the user is notified immediately.
We are convinced of the exceptional quality by design of our MPA II FT-NIR spectrometers.This is why we grant 10 years warranty on the moving parts of the interferometer as well as on the solid state laser.
MPA II spectrometers are designed to be easily main-tained by the user, thereby decreasing downtime and maintenance costs. Consumable items such as the light source are designed for a long life, but if they need to be replaced, the system automatically informs the user of the failure and offers online help for the replacement procedure. The consumables are prealigned and can be easily and quickly changed.
Moreover, the Ethernet access to the MPA II allows remote control and diagnostics of the spectrometer via your intranet or the World Wide Web.
The MPA II FT-NIR spectrometer features an internal filter wheel (‘validation unit’) that houses reference materials (e.g. BRM 2065) and several filters for automated instrument qualification tests. The OPUS Validation Program (OVP) is an intuitive user interface to setup and perform OQ and PQ protocols that verify that the MPA II is operating within specifications – also in routine use.
A wide range of external reference materials, e.g. SRM 1920, SRM 2065 and Labsphere standards, is supported. OVP fulfils the requirements of current guidelines, e.g. USP and Ph. Eur., and always keeps the user updated on the instrument status.
The ‘Validation Manual’ provides the comprehensive documentation of instrument qualification and software validation including the corresponding certificates.
GMP and 21 CFR Part 11 compliance
As a single platform interface, OPUS spectroscopy software entirely complies with current practice guidelines, featuring an extensive user management with multiple customizable access levels, complete audit trail, password protected databases and a single file strategy for easy data archiving. In ‘validated mode’ all demands of 21 CFR Part 11 (Electronic Records, Electronic Signatures) are covered by a smart signature strategy for measurement files and evaluation methods.
The multitude of sampling modules and accessories make the MPA II the ultimate FT-NIR solution for various types of industries.
The main benefit of FT-NIR spectroscopy is its versatility and ease of use. It is a fast and precise tool for the non-destructive analysis of liquid, solid and semi-solid materials, saving costs by reducing time and reagent use. It has largely replaced a number of wet chemical analysis methods in all types of industries including the food and fed industry as well as the chemical an pharmaceutical industry.
The comprehensive application support of the Bruker specialists helps to select the optimal measuring method as well as appropriate accessories and software solutions.
The most important applications are:
The major application areas for the MPA II in the food and feed industry include dairy and meat, beverages, edible oils, bakery ingredients and condiments as well as grains, seeds, feed and forage.
Use FT-NIR to effectively and cost efficiently solve a huge variety of application tasks in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industry, including raw material ID, tablet testing and monitoring drying or blending processes.
FT-NIR technology is widely used in a variety of chemical industries, including the petrochemical and polymer industry. The high information content in NIR spectra, measured in a few seconds, allows the simultaneous analysis of different components and system parameters with high precision.
