Hi I know of a local institution that would want to dispose of a FTIR Gas Analyser.
The instrument was bought in the 90’s and has been used to measure corrosive substances, so isn’t exactly in perfect condition. It may well not be of any use to anyone. It contains silicant drying gel and a laser, so could be hazardous if someone tried to take it apart. There is also a similarly old computer associated with the instrument that we would want to get rid of too. Presumably IT would need to wipe the hard drive before it could be recycled or disposed of.
Frankly, I had to look up FTIR. If you have any further questions please let me know and I will forward it on and answer to the benefit of everyone.
