Designed to quickly reveal molecular structure, chemical composition and sample morphology, the Thermo Scientific DXRxi Raman imaging microscope can provide new insights, identify defects and confirm product quality with a high degree of confidence. By employing the image-centric software interface, users can quickly profile materials through information-rich chemical images.
Instant visual feedback and instinctive image-driven control separates this instrument from other Raman microscopes. The DXRxi microscope can analyze large areas, providing microscopic detail in just seconds. Organizations with multiple disciplines can leverage the simplicity and approachability of the DXRxi microscope to realize an immediate impact in research output.
“The DXRxi microscope enables scientists to find the needle in a haystack quickly,” said Ryan Kershner, product manager, Raman spectroscopy, Thermo Fisher Scientific. “Because this high-powered microscope is so simple to operate, students and expert microscopists can rapidly collect data and answer complex questions in a variety of fields, from biological tissue to carbon nanotube research.”
The DXRxi microscope offers the following features:
  • New Thermo Scientific OMNICxi image-centric software provides visually driven data acquisition and intuitive sample targeting and parameter optimization
  • Automated alignment and calibration saves time and frustration
  • Near-instant visual chemical profiling requires no spectroscopic expertise to interpret
  • Ability to analyze large samples quickly
