From powders to paint chips - modern microspectroscopy draws big information from tiny samples (Nicolet RaptIR FTIR Microscope)
So many samples and so little time. Pressure to deliver successful results faster seems to increase all the time; using state-of-the-art IR microscopy tools can help you meet those demands. Microspectroscopy can analyze particulates, fibers, inks, contaminated surfaces, and more, making it a workhorse tool across a wide range of industries from environmental to automotive and pharmaceuticals. In particular, forensics and research labs need the capability to address a broad range of sample types. When productivity is measured in microns and minutes, advancements in microspectroscopy hardware and software help users address analytical challenges across different sample types encountered in diverse lab settings. The speaker will show how you can improve the speed and accuracy of your results and enable a wider range of users to access the information with diffraction-limited IR optics, outstanding visual performance, and powerful 64-bit software with a new user interface. Who will be interested: forensic scientists, environmental scientists, pharmaceutical analysts, analytical scientists, food packaging engineers. What will be covered: sample preparation, microparticles and microplastics, fiber analysis, coatings such as stains and ink on various substrates, micro-mapping, ATR, and transmission cells.
