PRLog - May 28, 2014 - SAN DIMAS, Calif. -- CRAIC Technologies, Inc., the world’s leading innovator of UV-visible-NIR microscopy solutions, joins with Laboratory Imaging, s.r.o., a leading specialist in imaging software solutions for microscopy, to introduce rIQ™ (http://microspectra.com/
RIQ Glass Fragment with Probes 1135x1746
“The partnership between CRAIC Technologies and Laboratory Imaging is yielding great success. CRAIC Technologies expertise in optics combined with Laboratory Imaging's decades of experience with microscope imaging software is advancing the state-of-the-
rIQ™ is an automated system that uses the thermal immersion method, as defined by the standard ASTM E1967, to measure the refractive index of microscopic glass fragments. The system, which incorporates many years of experience with the analysis of glass, allows the user to analyze the refractive index of multiple glass fragments simultaneously and with sophisticated analytical techniques. Statistical analysis methods can also be applied to the data and the instrument is also designed to be user friendly with a short learning curve.
rIQ™ is offered as a standalone package, as an add-on package to CRAIC Technologies microspectrophotometers or as an upgrade package for older units already in the field. A standalone package consists of a phase contrast microscope, a high resolution digital camera, the optical interface, a thermal stage, the controlling electronics and the rIQ™ software. The add-on package can be integrated with many CRAIC Technologies microspectrophotometers models, both past and present, to allow them to measure the color, absorbance microspectra™
