The Q5000 IR has been replaced by the Discovery TGA

The highly automated Q5000 IR is the TGA best suited to meet the most demanding research applications. It outperforms all competitors in baseline flatness, sensitivity to low-level weight changes, and flexibility in both standard and high heating rate operation. Other powerful features include a 25-position integrated autosampler with contamination-free, sealed pan-punching capability, an internal electromagnet for easy Curie Point temperature calibration, Hi-Res™, Modulated TGA™, and Platinum™ software for user convenience in scheduling automatic calibration, verification and diagnostic tests to keep the Q5000 IR constantly in top operating condition.
