Based on the latest technological developments, the Cary 610 microscopes offer unparalleled spatial resolution and sensitivity. In addition, because they are combined with a wide range of options, they offer flexibility for applications ranging from conventional measurements to advanced analytical development. The Cary 610 is a microscope combined with FTIR imaging systems with a single point for accurate mapping. It offers superb imaging sensitivity at high spectral resolutions for applications such as polymer defect analysis, measurement of living cells in water, and determination of changes.
Cary 670 FTIR features and highlights
According to Fouad Bouchta, general manager at Reacting, the Cary 610 system would likely be upgraded to a Cary 620, offering greater flexibility depending on the application. It is supported by a range of features and options as well as a range of available accessories that enhance its performance and extend its functionality:
- Featuring validated applications: microscopy, infrared and FTIR ;
- Equipped with a compatible camera that allows high sensitivity imaging at high spectral and spatial resolution;
- Its Direct Laser Infrared Imaging (LDIR) provides a fast and simplified path to molecular imaging, using the Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) coupled with fast scanning optics, replacing the globe based interferometer and focal plane array detectors of traditional FTIR imaging systems;
- Equipped with high quality imaging accessories such as the angle lens accessory and the sliding ATR accessory;
- Multiple measurement modes are available, including transmission and reflection spectra, attenuated total reflectance (ATR), etc.
- Patented apertures allow the user to easily view the macroscopic sample;
- Controlled by versatile and intuitive software for easy FTIR microscopy,
- Full access to raw data. This allows for efficient processing and generation of infrared images, eliminating the need for data recovery and wasting a lot of time ;
- The ability to attach the microscope to a Cary 660 FTIR research spectrometer or a high-end, air-cushioned Cary 670 FTIR spectrometer to provide two instruments in one, a research FTIR spectrometer and an FTIR microscope.
- The system also offers the ability to easily upgrade to the Cary 620-FTIR for enhanced operating flexibility to meet changing microscopy and imaging needs.
The Cary 620-Ftir, meanwhile, offers unparalleled imaging for biomedical and materials research. This microscope operates at a higher level of sensitivity offering true Focal Plane Array (FPA) imaging, allowing the collection of hundreds to thousands of spectra simultaneously. This offers unlimited possibilities for a wide range of applications, including polymers, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, chemicals and forensics.
