February 7, 2022 -- Thermo Fisher has released the Thermo Scientific Nicolet RaptIR Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) microscope. It enables users of varying experience levels to quickly locate areas of interest, collect high-spatial resolution visual and infrared data, and generate accurate results with minimal time and effort.
This next-generation FTIR spectroscopy microscope is designed to let researchers rapidly locate and identify trace materials, inclusions, impurities, and microparticles, along with the distribution of these materials, within a sample. The microscope includes a large working area and heavy-duty stage, and enhanced automation makes it possible to identify thousands of particles quickly and efficiently, the company added.
With the Nicolet RaptIR FTIR Microscope, researchers in diverse fields can identify unknown substances, according to Thermo Fisher. The Nicolet RaptIR FTIR Microscope has clear guidance throughout the entire analytical workflow and a new wide-area view that enables users to quickly pinpoint areas of interest. Additionally, a diffraction-limited infrared objective lens produces ultra-sharp images, revealing detail in samples that might otherwise be missed.
The Nicolet RaptIR FTIR Microscope integrates with 64-bit Thermo Scientific Omnic Paradigm workflow software to offer a new user interface, simplifying materials science research and providing increased user flexibility. Thermo Fisher Scientific is a leading company in the world serving science, with annual revenue of approximately $40 billion.
