FTIR microscopy and FT-IR / NIR imaging systems
Spotlight™ is a range of high performance FT-IR microscopy and FT-IR/NIR imaging systems that use the same unique interferometer technology as in the PerkinElmer Frontier IR platform.
The flexibility of the optics allows you to upgrade your spectrometer, at any time, to include our industry leading microscopic and imaging functionality, including Spotlight 150,Spotlight 200 and Spotlight 400 systems.
Frontier Spotlight microscopy and imaging options include both transmission and reflection micro-sampling, and its Micro ATR option provides information down to areas as small as 3µm. A number of sample automation, detector options are available to suit many applications. Each system is engineered to the highest quality specifications, providing high energy throughput, reproducibility and, ultimately, confidence in the quality of your result.
Spotlight imaging systems reveal the identity of a vast array of chemical components within materials, as well as displaying areas of homogeneity and variation. A preferred materials testing technique due to its speed, ease-of-use and reliability, FT-IR/NIR imaging provides higher level understanding to facilitate your research.
The Spotlight 400 imaging system is now available with extended detector wavelength options, enabling access more applications than ever before. The new Spotlight wide range MCT option extends the mid-IR Spotlight imaging capability to below 600cm-1 – way beyond the range measureable with similar systems employing focal plane array detectors, enabling measurement of low frequency polymer bands, inorganics, semiconductor impurities and more. The InGaAs Spotlight detector option provides highest performance dedicated NIR imaging, with increased sensitivity and lower image collection times than previous systems and is utilised in pharmaceutical, foods and feeds impurity investigations. In addition, the InGaas Spotlight system requires no cryogenic cooling, with multi-sample automation features built-in, providing higher performance, unattended operation 24/7.
