Technologies, the leader in UV-visible-NIR microspectroscopy innovation,
today unveiled the ability to control the temperature of samples being analyzed
spectoscopically. Heating and freezing stages have brought many benefits to
scientists wishing to visualise a sample under different temperature regimes.
CRAIC Technologies is proud to add this capability to its microspectrophotometers
for spectral analysis of microscopic samples throughout the UV, visible and
NIR regions. Additionally, samples can also be imaged from the deep UV to the
near IR with this new product. The CRAIC Thermal Stage adds to the growing list
of microspectrophotometer capabilities offered by CRAIC Technologies. It also
opens up new research capabilities for everything from biotechnology to materials
science to nanotechnology.
“CRAIC Technologies has been a leader in innovation in the field of UV-visible-NIR
microanalysis since its founding. We have helped to advance the field of microscale
analysis with our leading edge instruments, research and teaching. The addition
of thermal control for microspectral analysis is a necessary step for a number
of fields of research” states Dr. Paul Martin, President of CRAIC Technologies.
“With the ability to both heat and cool microscopic samples, new horizons
are opening for many different fields. These include everything from the analysis
of biological samples to chemistry to geology.”
The CRAIC Technologies Thermal Stage package, depending upon its configuration,
enables a scientist to analyze the transmission, reflectance or fluorescence
spectra of microscopic samples under conditions of extreme cold or heat. Operating
in the UV-visible-NIR regions, samples can be cooled to as low as -196°
or heated up to as high as 600°C. The same system also allows for atmospheric
control of the sample environment...a feature that will open up additional avenues
of research in many fields.
