PRLog - Sep. 25, 2012 - SAN DIMAS, Calif. -- San Dimas, CA (October 1, 2012) -- CRAIC Technologies, the world leading innovator of microspectroscopy solutions, is proud to announce the addition of Raman microspectroscopy capabilities to its flagship product: the 20/20 Perfect Vision™ microspectrophotometer. Users of the 20/20 PV™ now have the ability to acquire Raman spectra, with lasers from the blue to the near infrared, in addition to UV-visible-NIR absorbance, reflectance, fluorescence and emission microspectra™
2020 PV now with Raman microspectroscopy
“CRAIC Technologies has long been an innovator in the field of UV-visible-NIR microanalysis. We have helped to advance the field of microscale analysis by constantly developing new instrumentation as well as with research and teaching. Adding Raman microspectroscopy capabilities to our leading edge 20/20 PV™ microspectrophotometer makes it the ideal tool for the laboratory or process environment as it packs so many capabilities into one package” states Dr. Paul Martin, President of CRAIC Technologies. “The 20/20 PV™ is now able to acquire vibrational spectra in addition to UV-visible-NIR spectra and images. And using CRAIC Technologies proprietary optical technology, the Raman, UV-visible-NIR and luminescence spectra are all from the same spot. The ability to acquire spectra using multiple techniques and of exactly the same microscopic sample area represents a strong advantage for the 20/20 PV™ microspectrophotometer.”
The 20/20 PV™ microspectrophotometer is a self-contained unit that features advanced UV-visible-NIR light sources, solid state lasers, true UV-visible-NIR microscopy, sensitive UV-visible-NIR range spectrometers and sophisticated MINERVA™ spectral software. Raman microspectroscopy is added with the Apollo™ Raman microspectroscopy packages. Each Apollo™ is a self contained package including laser, spectrometer and hardware and multiple Apollo™ units with different lasers may be combined on the 20/20 PV™. All these capabilities can be integrated into the cutting-edge 20/20 PV™ microspectrophotometer and give you multiple capabilities to analyze microscopic samples rapidly and easily. With its Raman, UV-visible-NIR spectroscopic and imaging capabilities, durable design, ease-of-use and the experience of CRAIC Technologies in microanalysis, the 20/20™ microspectrophotometer is more than just a scientific instrument…it is a solution to your most challenging analytical questions.
