A new line of specimen holders can allow the specimen surface to be precisely oriented at the appropriate distance from the lamp to maximize irradiance uniformity. In addition, loading samples is now reportedly safer and more ergonomic, and the holders allow for multiple thicknesses. One specific holder design can remain on the rack and simply be folded together-similar to vertical blinds-for easy access to the lamp and chamber, without the clutter of hard-to-stack holders. The holders can be used on any existing Ci Series instrument.

Atlas partnered with an industrial design firm to develop the sample holders, which can accommodate a range of specimen sizes and thicknesses, as well as reduce the rack loading time by more than 50%. During the design process, Atlas conducted multiple interviews with customers who test a range of specimen types. The new state-of-the art designs incorporate their feedback, as well as observations of sample loading best practices.
