Professor associate Daniel Chapdelaine has recently acquired an ATR sampling accessory "Smart iTR" from Thermo Scientific. This “Smart iTR” module allows the characterization of all types of samples (liquid, solid, plates, powders, etc …) while reducing the sample preparation to the strict minimum.

Professor Daniel Chapdelaine has made available this "Smart iTR" module to all the scientific community . The module is based on equipment supported by the Research Center NanoQAM. Persons interested in autonomously using this "Smart iTR" module will have to follow a preliminary training with Gwenaël Chamoulaud.
