Innovative microscope for simultaneous FTIR and Raman spectroscopy
Nov 27 2023
AIRsight infrared Raman microscope
Shimadzu, a global leader in analytical instrumentation, introduces the ground-breaking AIRsight FTIR Raman microscope, the world's first and only instrument capable of seamlessly performing both FTIR and Raman spectroscopy. This single, highly efficient instrument streamlines processes and offers diverse applications in industries such as chemical, electrical, electronic, machinery, transportation, and microplastics research.
The synergy of Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and Raman spectroscopy in a single instrument enhances the efficiency of analytical techniques. AIRsight, with its ability to acquire both spectra from the same position using an extremely small spot, delivers crucial complementary information for a comprehensive analysis.
Key features include the efficient gathering of data on both organic and inorganic substances, simultaneous acquisition of FTIR and Raman spectra without sample relocation, and seamless switching between measurement modes using the AMSolution control software. Equipped with Shimadzu's proprietary wide-view camera, infrared microscope camera, and Raman-use objective lens, the AIRsight provides high-quality imaging and precise observations. The AMSolution control software further enables length measurements, particularly useful for analysing microplastic particles.
AIRsight marks a significant leap in analytical instrumentation, replacing the need for separate FTIR and Raman microscopes with an all-in-one solution. Shimadzu continues its commitment to delivering superior instruments, making processes faster, more compact, and user-friendly.
