Specac Analytics

Specac is committed to helping you make the world a better place.

Specac Analytics represents our desire to support businesses that are using life changing technologies, both with the existing portfolio of spectroscopic accessories that we’ve developed during our 50 years of history, but also by working with you to find brand new solutions for your processes, and even helping you to commercialise your new ideas.

Specac has earned a strong reputation for designing high specification, reliable accessories with low maintenance costs, and innovation is also a key platform in our strategic goals.

There’s recently been a burgeoning use of FTIR in the application areas of clinical/bio-medical diagnostics, microbiology, forensics, pharma, food & beverage, environmental testing, chemometrics and algorithms, and we recognise that software and diagnostic solutions require a hardware platform. That’s where we can come in. We have strong relationships with all of the instrument manufacturers, and we can provide you with a bespoke accessory for your needs that will work with any instrument. We won’t, however, limit our options to FTIR. We are happy to work alongside you in finding solutions using other spectroscopic measurement techniques.


We recently launched The Arrow™ for use with the Quest family of ATR. It’s ideal for use with all liquid samples. If you already have a Quest, you don’t need to buy a new, it has its own, interchangeable puck.

Other features include: 

  • Remote, batch sample preparation
  • The fastest analysis using FTIR
  • Zero chance of cross-contamination
  • Samples can be indexed, stored and re-tested
  • Zero Cleaning. Zero Risk. Zero Hassle

We’re also busy designing an auto-sampling accessory for use with The Arrow, which will allow for high volume and quick throughput ATR testing, the first accessory of its kind on the market.

Among the other accessories that Specac already offers for these application fields are : -

The Pearl™ ,  a high specification liquid transmission accessory designed for laboratory spectroscopic sample analysis in the Near and Mid-Infrared. The accessory contains Specac’s innovative Oyster Cell assembly which holds your sample in a horizontal plane, and it’s far easier to clean between samples.

The Variable Temperature Cell, the ideal accessory to use for the transmission study of liquid or solid samples over a broad range of temperatures.

We wish to support business large and small in changing the world through what they do, so please email us at analytics@specac.co.uk if you’d like to find out more.
