Your Options in CRAIC Microspectrophotometers

There are two general types of microspectrophotometers available from CRAIC Technologies: complete systems that are built onto CRAIC microscopes and modular systems that can be adapted to a customer provided microscope.  The 20/30 PV™ microspectrophotometer and the FLEX™ microspectrophotometer are complete systems including the microscope while the 508 PV™ microspectrophotometer is a modular version.

508 PV modular head unit Flex Microspectrophotometer 20/30 PV Microspectrophotometer

The 508 PV™ microspectrophotometer is a modular head unit that can be combined with your existing microscope to add microspectroscopy capabilities!

Key Features:

  • 350-1,000 nm range
  • Techniques and range determined by specific microscope configuration

The FLEX™ microspectrophotometer is an integrated tool to measure the UV-VIS-NIR spectra of microscopic samples easily and cost effectively.

Key Features:

  • 240-1,000 nm range
  • UV-VIS-NIR Transmission
  • VIS-NIR Reflection
  • UV-VIS Fluorescence

The 20/30 PV™ microspectrophotometer is a powerful and modular system setting the bar for microspectroscopy, featuring measurements from the deep UV to shortwave IR.

Key Features:

  • 200-2.500 nm range
  • UV-VIS-NIR Transmission
  • UV-VIS-NIR Reflection
  • UV-VIS Fluorescence

All CRAIC microspectrophotometers feature a unique seven position aperture system that provides reproducible and variable calibrated sampling areas with direct imaging of your region of interest simultaneously with your spectral measurement.  This direct imaging of the sampling area is unavailable from any other manufacturer on the market and significantly increases the ease of use and confidence in your measurements. The difference in the microspectrophotometers is mainly in the spectral ranges and included features. These microspectrophotometers are also compatible with other spectroscopy and microscopy modules from CRAIC Technologies , like Raman microspectroscopy and UV or SWIR Absorption imaging.

Other features include:

  • Upgrading spectral measurements with polarization
  • Creating hyperspectral data cubes with programmable stages
  • Conducting colorimetric analysis of microscale sampling areas using ColorPro™ software
  • Analyzing optical film thicknesses of microscale sampling areas using FilmPro™ software
