Emission Spectra Measured with a Microspectrophotometer

 

 

The Cytophotometer measures the UV-vsibile-NIR spectra of sub-cellular components.

The Cytophotometer is designed to measure UV-visible-NIR spectra of cellular components.  In other words, the cytophotometer is 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 biologicalal 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.

NIR Microscopy

NIR microscopy

NIR Microscopy is microscopy for imaging in the NIR region. 

NIR microscopes are designed to "see" beyond what a standard optical microscope can image.  With special NIR optics, light sources and cameras, NIR microscopy is for imaging microscopic samples in the visible and the Near infrared region.  This means that NIR microscopes have features that make them superior to normal visible range microscopes:

  • Some materials are transparent in the NIR while being opaque in the visible region
  • Enhanced contrast of certain materials in the NIR region. 

For example, silicon is opaque under normal light but is transparent in the NIR region.  The interiors of silicon based devices can therefore be inspected without having to disassemble them.    

CRAIC Technologies offers a number of solutions for the NIR microscope.  These custom designed microscopes capable of imaging from the visible region all the way into the Near infrared.  They are capable of microscopy in transmission, reflectance and even fluorescence.

Ultraviolet Microscopy

Ultraviolet microscopy

Ultraviolet Microscopy is microscopy for imaging in the ultraviolet region.

Ultraviolet microscopy requires a special microscope designed to "see" beyond what a standard optical microscope can image.  With upgraded ultraviolet optics, light sources and cameras, ultraviolet microscopy is for imaging microscopic samples in the visible and the ultraviolet region.  This means that ultraviolet microscopes have features that make them superior to normal visible range microscopes:

  • Some materials are transparent or clear in normal microscopes but can be imaged with ultraviolet microscopes
  • By using the shorter wavelengths of ultraviolet light, higher image resolution can be obtained than with the longer wavelengths of visible range light.

One example is in imaging protein crystals: these microscopic crystals are transparent in the visible range but can be easily seen at 280 nm due to the strong absorbance of certain amino acids. 

CRAIC Technologies offers a number of solutions for ultraviolet microscopy.  These custom designed microscopes capable of imaging from the deep ultraviolet all the way into the near IR.  They are capable of ultraviolet microscopy in transmission, reflectance and even fluorescence.
