State-of-the-art Technology


The MPA incorporates state-of-the-art optics for outstanding performance and stability. The heart of the instrument is Bruker Optics’ permanently aligned RockSolid interferometer, which is equipped with gold-coated cube-corner mirrors. The permanent alignment provides consistent high quality results, less downtime and highest stability, a precondition for successful calibration transfer and low detection limits.

Hassle-Free Maintenance

MPA spectrometers are designed to be easily maintained by the user, thereby decreasing downtime and maintenance costs. Consumable items such as the laser and 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 allows remote control and diagnostics of the spectrometer via your intranet or the World Wide Web.



The MPA FT-NIR spectrometer is equipped with an automated filter wheel which houses standard materials and filters for testing instrument performance. Included in the OPUS software is OVP (OPUS Validation Program), an instrument test program which executes a series of performance tests using the standards in the filter wheel. This program evaluates the instrument performance and determines if the spectrometer is operating within specifications.

In addition, Bruker ‘s Validation Program provides the user with a complete package of qualification routines that meet the demands of validation such as USP, Ph.Eur. and ASTM standards. OPUS allows a customized setup to satisfy your individual validation requirements and the status is always indicated to the user.

GMP and 21 CFR Part 11 compliance

OPUS spectroscopy software comes equipped with the necessary routines to assist laboratories that must comply to GMP standards. Extensive user management with multiple security levels, non-editable data files and complete audit trails are some of the many features of this comprehensive spectroscopy software. OPUS fully supports the demands of the 21 CFR Part 11 regulation (Electronic Records, Electronic Signatures) issued by the FDA.
