Bruker Introduces New TANGO System for Instant
FT-NIR Identification and Quantitation of
Constituents in Food, Feed, Chemical and Pharma
August 04, 2011 07:03 AM Eastern Daylight Time
ETTLINGEN, Germany--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Bruker Corporation (NASDAQ: BRKR) today
announced the launch of the TANGO, an innovative stand-alone FT-NIR (Fourier Transform Near Infrared)
spectrometer, further expanding Bruker’s existing industry-leading FT-NIR product range. TANGO is a robust,
small footprint, very easy to use benchtop system with touch-screen operation for routine users.
The new TANGO offers efficient and cost-effective analysis for the identification and quantification of constituents in
a wide variety of application fields in the food, feed, chemical and pharmaceutical industries. TANGO is fully GMP
and 21 CFR Part 11 compliant for working in regulated environments. The TANGO is available in two versions –
one for measuring solids in reflection and one for measuring liquids in transmission.
The intuitive user interface of the TANGO quickly and securely guides the operator through the work flow. The new
automated background measurements help untrained staff to operate the spectrometer securely and error free. The
user interface is available in many languages to make sure that the TANGO is well-accepted by local operators. The
TANGOdemonstrates how easy NIR analysis can be. Its housing and touch-screen monitor are rugged and easy to
clean, making it ideal for laboratory and for dusty environments.
Urban Faeh, President of Bruker Optics, commented: “We believe that the new TANGO has exactly what users
require of FT-NIR spectrometers suitable for industrial use: robustness, high precision and straight-forward operator
guidance. Proven Bruker FT-NIR technology has been combined with easy-to-use touch screen operation and a
small footprint, which makes TANGO ideal for routine applications.“
The TANGO complements Bruker’s existing FT-NIR product range, consisting of the Multi-Purpose
AnalyzerMPA, which offers everything needed for the analysis of liquids, solids, powders and tablets. The MPA
with its various measurement options is an ideal tool for sophisticated method development or for labs requiring a
high degree of analytical flexibility. The Bruker process spectrometer MATRIX-F is the first industrially-hardened
FT-NIR system that can withstand harsh environments. Its innovative design provides consistent high quality results,
less down-time, direct methods transfer and access to new applications that other less sensitive and precise
hardened instruments are incapable of.
