CRAIC Apollo™ Now Offered with Blue, Green, Red and Infrared Lasers
Product News Nov 02, 2012
The CRAIC Apollo™ is now offered with lasers ranging from the blue through the green and into the red. Designed to add to many light microscopes, the CRAIC Apollo™ can measure Raman spectra of micron-scale samples with multiple lasers from 405 to 830 nm.
CRAIC Technologies is a leading innovator in the field of optical microanalysis.
CRAIC Technologies has announced the addition of even more laser wavelengths to its CRAIC Apollo™ Raman microspectrometer.
Designed to be added to many different types of light microscopes, the CRAIC Apollo™ enables scientists and engineers to measure the Raman spectra from microscopic samples or microscope sampling areas of large samples.
The CRAIC Apollo™ can even be added to a CRAIC Technologies microspectrophotometer adding Raman microspectroscopy to UV-visible-NIR absorbance, reflectance and fluorescence microspectroscopy and imaging.
And because the CRAIC Apollo™ is now offered with lasers with peak wavelengths ranging from 405 nm through the 830 nm, a whole host of capabilities are now available to researchers and engineers including resonance Raman spectroscopy and more.
Additionally, multiple lasers can be combined on a single microscope for maximum experimental flexibility.
By offering these new lasers for the CRAIC Apollo™ Raman spectrometer, CRAIC Technologies is able to supply users an even more powerful tool for sample micro-analysis.
“CRAIC Technologies has been an innovator in the field of UV-visible-NIR microanalysis since its founding. We have helped to advance the field of microscale analysis with innovative instrumentation, software, research and teaching. We have seen the need for Raman microspectroscopy in addition to our current capabilities of UV-visible-NIR and luminescence microspectroscopy. Therefore, we created the CRAIC Apollo™ Raman microspectrometer based around a large number of different lasers.” states Dr. Paul Martin, President of CRAIC Technologies.
Dr. Martin continued, “And by combining the power of Raman spectroscopy with our UV-visible microspectrophotometers, the customer no longer has purchase a separate instrument, nor move the sample between instruments and acquire the data separately. You can analyze the same microscopic area of the sample under the same conditions without additional sample preparation or instrument alignment. Improved results and sample analysis throughput can be dramatically increased.”
The CRAIC Apollo™ Raman microspectrometer is a self contained unit that features Raman grade lasers as the light source, an advanced optical interface to the microscope, a Raman spectrometer and sophisticated software for instrument control and data analysis.
Lasers are now offered throughout the visible and near infrared region and include 405, 473, 488, 546, 638, 660, 785 and 830 nm. Each module can be used either individually or the modules may be combined so that multiple laser wavelengths can be used to probe a single sample.
The idea is to provide a highly flexible Raman microspectrometer with the optimum laser wavelengths to enhance users spectroscopic results.
These rugged, self-contained units are also designed to be used either with an optical microscope or with a CRAIC Technologies microspectrophotometer.
With high sensitivity, durable design, ease-of-use, multiple imaging and spectroscopic techniques and the support of CRAIC Technologies, the CRAIC Apollo™ is more than just a Raman microspectrometer...it is a key component to users analytical solution.
