Add spectroscopy to your microscope

508 PV™ Microscope Spectrometer

Add spectroscopy to your microscope

The 508 PV™ microscope spectrophotometer adds spectroscopy and digital color imaging to your optical microscope or probe station. It can also be used to upgrade an older microspectrometer with cutting edge optics, electronics and software.

The 508 PV™ attaches to an open photoport and enables you to collect transmission, reflectance, polarization or even fluorescence and luminescence spectra of microscopic samples with a properly equipped microscope.  Featuring the Lightblades™ spectrophotometer technology from CRAIC, the 508 PV™ spectrophotometer has a usable spectral range from the ultraviolet to the near infrared.  With the 508 PV™, you can acquire high quality spectra of even sub-micron samples rapidly, non-destructively and with ease.

Perfect Vision for Science™


508 PV on Microscope

The 508 PV™ microscope spectrophotometer is ideal for diverse applications such as colorimetry of pixels on flat panel displays, reflectometry of vitrinite coal and source rock, or thin film thickness measurements of optics and semiconductors. The 508 PV™is also a cost effective way to upgrade older microspectrometers to the latest hardware and software.

The 508 PV™ Microscope Spectrophotometer can be configured to acquire spectra from the deep ultraviolet to the near infrared. It can be added to a microscope to acquire spectra and images in absorbance, reflectance, and fluorescence.
