CRAIC Technologies Introduces the 20/20 UV-visible-NIR Microspectrophotometer: Perfect Vision for Science
(Nanowerk News) CRAIC Technologies, a leading innovator of UV-visible-NIR microspectroscopy solutions, is proud to introduce the 20/20™ UV-visible-NIR microspectrophotometer. As the new flagship product for CRAIC Technologies, 20/20™ microspectrophotometer is designed to non-destructively analyze many types of microscopic samples from the deep ultraviolet to the near infrared. Analysis of samples can be done by absorbance, reflectance, luminescence and fluorescence with unparalleled speed and accuracy. The system can also be configured to image microscopic samples in the UV and NIR regions in addition to color imaging. Applications are numerous and include forensic analysis of trace evidence, vitrinite reflectance of coal and spectral analysis of minerals, measurement of protein crystals, contamination analysis and thin film measurement of semiconductors, hard disks and flat panel displays. Combined with CRAIC Technologies Traceable Standards, which are specifically designed for use with microspectrophotometers and calibrated using Standard Reference Materials from NIST, the 20/20 microspectrophotometer™ is the cutting-edge micro-analysis tool for any laboratory or manufacturing facility.
“CRAIC Technologies has been an innovator in the field of UV-visible-NIR microanalysis since its founding. We have helped to advance the field of microscale analysis with innovative instrumentation, software, research and teaching. The 20/20™ microspectrophotometer is the ideal tool for a laboratory or factory due its reliability, its speed and its ease of use” states Dr. Paul Martin, President of CRAIC Technologies. “CRAIC Technologies microspectrophotometers are backed by years of experience in both designing, building and the using of this type of instrumentation for spectroscopic and image analysis.”
The 20/20™ microspectrophotometer integrates an advanced spectrophotometer with a sophisticated UV-visible-NIR range microscope and powerful, easy-to-use software. This flexible instrument is designed to acquire data from microscopic samples by absorbance, reflectance or even luminescence spectroscopy. By including high-resolution digital imaging, the user is also able to use the instrument as a ultraviolet or infrared microscope. Touch screen controls, sophisticated software, calibrated variable apertures and other innovations all point to a new level of sophistication for microanalysis. With high sensitivity, durable design, ease-of-use, multiple imaging and spectroscopic techniques, automation and the support of CRAIC Technologies, the 20/20 Perfect Vision™ is more than just a scientific instrument…it is the solution to your analytical challenges.
