JASCO has its roots in the Institute of Optics – Tokyo University of Education which developed Japan’s first infrared spectrophotometer, Model DS-101, in 1954. Since the establishment of the company in 1958, we have inherited the spirit of our predecessors in infrared spectrophotometry and have completed the FT/IR-4X as the culmination of our work. The size is only 386 (W) × 479 (D) mm, and we have also achieved a 30 % reduction in power consumption compared to conventional models.
The FT/IR-4X is research-grade in performance, functionality and expandability, and supports high resolution, high S/N, high sensitivity detectors, extending measurement wavenumber, microscopy with linear array detector, and rapid scan. The sample compartment is 200 mm wide, the same width as that of a high-end model, and can accommodate conventional accessories, including those from third parties. FT/IR-4X series offers reliable operation with industry-leading sensitivity and the most advanced technology available today. Their instrument features are as below;
● Stable Interferometer
● Excellent S/N Ratio
● High Sensitivity Detectors
● Wavenumber Extension
● Vibration-Free Optical Bench
● Moisture Protection
● Removal of Interferences from CO2 and H2O
● KnowItAll™ Informatics
● GxP/FDA 21 CFR Part 11 Compliant
● Microscope/IR Imaging

FT/IR-4X with ATR accessory
Remove the sample compartment lid and set ATR PRO 4X VIEW. This setting is very easy.
iQX automatically recognizes accessory and activates the measurement parameters used last time.
ATR PRO 4X VIEW allows you to check the image of the sample surface in close contact through the diamond crystal by the built-in high-resolution camera, and it is saved together with the measurement data.
ATR PRO 4X VIEW allows you to measure a large size sample without interfering with main unit because of its integrated design.
ATR PRO 4X VIEW has ZnSe, Ge and Diamond crystals that can be easily replaced.
When the crystal is replaced, the spectrum of the crystal will be recognized and a message will be displayed on the screen.
At Kovalent we strive to establish and develop long-term partnerships with our customers. When we use the word “partnership” we mean that Kovalent becomes an integral part of our customers’ projects, where we are expected to fully understand their application needs. We aim to make Kovalent our customers’ first and natural choice, and this ambition permeates our entire organisation from initial contact to finished and delivered product.
Genetec is a member of the same family of companies as Kovalent. Both companies share the same set of values and are in many ways integrated with each other. The main difference between the two companies are their products. Kovalent is involved in system solutions including instrumentation and Genetec is mainly working with consumables. The focus of Genetec is chromatography accessories. You are welcome to visit their state of the art web shop: genetec.se
