mIRage IR Microscope: New Partnership with Photothermal Spectroscopy Corp
We’re proud to announce a new partnership with Photothermal Spectroscopy Corp as their official distributor in the UK, Ireland and Nordic region. Their mIRage IR microscope uses a proprietary O-PTIR technique to break the IR diffraction limit and overcome the greatest problems of IR spectroscopy.
Blue Scientific is the official distributor for Photothermal Spectroscopy Corp in the UK, Ireland and Nordic region (Norway, Finland, Sweden, Iceland, Denmark). For more information or quotes, please get in touch.
mIRage IR Microscope
mIRage changes the field of IR spectroscopy by overcoming its two greatest problems: poor resolution and demanding sample preparation.
With the mIRage IR microscope you can:
- Achieve sub-micron spatial resolution
- Measure thick samples in reflection mode
- Without the contact limitations of ATR
- No dispersive artifacts
Perform IR imaging and spectroscopy with a spatial resolution improvement of over 20x. mIRage uses photothermal IR spectroscopy (PTIR) to acquire transmission quality FTIR spectra, even in reflection mode.
Measure Thick Samples
PTIR also overcomes another key limitation of IR microscopy: the inability to analyse thick samples. Without the contact limitations of ATR, this opens up a whole range of new applications.
This also means that sample preparation is less demanding, so results can be acquired faster, with lower costs.
Breaking the IR Diffraction Limit
mIRage overcomes the IR diffraction limit by combining a pulsed, tunable laser with a proprietary optical technique that measures the sample’s photothermal response. The system is fast and easy to use. Results can be correlated to industry standard FTIR databases.
