Emission Spectra Measured with a Microspectrophotometer



Cytophotometry is the UV-vsibile-NIR spectral analysis of cellular components.

Cytophotometry is the  UV-visible-NIR spectral analysis of cellular components.  In other words, cytophotometry utilizes a microspectrophotometer of which there are two basic types: the fully integrated microspectrophotometer that has been built and optimized for microspectroscopy and the spectrophotometer unit designed to attach to an open photoport of a biological microscope. Depending upon the configuration, both are capable of measuring the spectra of microscopic samples by transmission, absorption, reflectance, fluorescence, emission and polarization microspectroscopy.   With special software, both are capable of thin film thickness measurements and colorimetry as well.

A CRAIC Technologies™ microspectrophotometer is a purpose-built system that allows you to analyze UV-visible-NIR range microspectra™ non-destructively and with no sample contact.  Capable of analyzing even sub-micron areas, they are also capable of high resolution digital imaging.  Designed for ease-of-use, they are durable instruments designed for microscale spectroscopy.
