When using a dispersive infrared spectrometer it is quite normal to wait 10 minutes or more for the presentation of a spectrum of ones sample. A routine is generally established where the next sample is prepared during this waiting period. Spectra produced by an FT-IR spectrometer is often available in under a minute hence the bottleneck has moved from the spectrometer to the sample preparation procedure. Such a shift in emphasis has resulted in more pressure being applied to accessory manufacturers to reduce sample preparation time or eliminate it completely.
