FT-IR Imaging System

PerkinElmer Frontier Spotlight 400 

The Spotlight 400 FT-IR Imaging System is designed with state-of-the-art technology to allow for intelligent automation and sophisticated analysis capabilities. The system incorporates a number of unique productivity tools and features an ATR imaging system that enables the collection of high resolution infrared images of extremely small samples to visualize the composition of materials based on FT-IR spectral data.

Main instrumental features:

  • Dual mode single point and MCT array
  • Micro-ATR objective with a choice of a silicon or germanium crystal
    ATR standard spot and large spot imaging objective with a germanium crystal with automatic switching between wide area survey and high definition imaging modes

  • Wave Length Range
    7,800 – 600 cm-1

  • High quality spectral production and images from sample areas, yielding pixel resolutions of 6.25, 25, or 50 microns

  • SpectrumIMAGE™ software as standard enabling full operation and image analysis

  • Region of Interest (ROI) finding to allow for ease of analysis of multiple particles and layers all at once

Some of the applications supported by the Spotlight 400 System include:

  • Materials Analysis
  • Forensics
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Biomedical Research
  • Academic Research
  • Biomaterials
