Thermo Scientific Nicolet RaptIR FTIR Microscope

The Nicolet™ RaptIR™ FTIR Microscope from Thermo Scientific™ has been specifically developed to allow scientists to quickly locate and determine inclusions, trace materials, impurities and microparticles together with the distribution of such materials inside a sample.

The microscope consists of a huge working area and heavy-duty stage, enabling users to examine an extensive range of samples ranging to a thickness of up to 4 cm and weighing around 5 kg. Additionally, improved automation makes it feasible to determine thousands of particles on a 1 cm2 filter in a quick and efficient manner.

Users of different experience levels can quickly navigate and make sense of complicated samples with the help of the strong and highly intuitive 64-bit Thermo Scientific™ OMNIC™ Paradigm™ Software. They could locate areas of interest, gather high-spatial resolution visual and infrared data, and produce precise results in multiple report formats with minimal effort.

Users can view it fast and determine it quicker.


With the Nicolet RaptIR FTIR Microscope, scientists in a broad range of fields, including environmental analysis, pharmaceuticals, forensics, art conservation and electronics, can gather different quantitative and kinetic data regarding their samples and determine unknown substances.

The Nicolet RaptIR FTIR Microscope offers clear guidance at every analytical workflow step, and a new wide-area view allows users to rapidly locate areas of interest. In addition, a diffraction-limited infrared objective lens generates ultra-sharp images.

The system has been coupled with the Thermo Scientific™ Nicolet™ iS50 FTIR Spectrometer, and it can thus obtain data for organic and inorganic samples like pastes, gases, liquids, gels, powders or micron-sized particulates.

The Nicolet iS50 System has the ability to obtain data with the help of far-infrared to visible range spectrometry, highly automated operations and a built-in mid/farIR diamond ATR. Additionally, the full-sized sample compartment could be adapted for TGA-IR (deformulation) studies or FT-Raman.

The research-grade Nicolet RaptIR FTIR Microscope helps users get answers in microns and minutes, be it from an advanced mainframe or heavy-duty sampling stage or a well-developed software platform.
