CRAIC’s Technologies MP-2™ Photometer can upgrade your microscope

The CRAIC Technologies MP-2™ Microscope Photometer is designed to add photometry and imaging to an optical microscope. With a spectral range from the deep UV to the near infrared, the MP-2™ is better described as a microscope radiometer. It is limited only by the microscope’s optics.

The CRAIC MP-2™ microphotometer enables collection of transmission, reflectance or even fluorescence and luminescence photometric data of microscopic samples.

mp-1The MP-2’s solid state detectors have dynamic ranges and sensitivities greater than PMTs or imaging systems and with complete software control, either broad- or narrow-band, photometric intensity measurements can be made. Typical applications include:

  • Cytophotometry & immunohistochemistry
  • Cytofluorimetry & immunofluorescence
  • Intracellular calcium measurements
  • Gemology & mineralogy
  • Thickness measurements
  • Ion & pH measurements
  • DNA analysis
  • Photoreceptor analysis

FLEX™ from CRAIC Technologies – a superior solution for analytical challenges

FLEX™, a UV-visible-NIR microspectrophotometer designed to be flexible in configuration, capability and pricing, has been launched by CRAIC Technologies.

Tailored for cost effective multiple spectroscopic analysis of many types of microscopic samples, FLEX™ operates from the deep ultraviolet to the near infrared. Depending upon the configuration, samples can be quickly and accurately analysed by absorbance, reflectance, luminescence and fluorescence.

FLEX™ can also image microscopic samples directly via its DirecVu™ optics and grab high resolution digital colour stills. Additional options include a measurement capability for refractive indices and thin film thickness. FLEX™ is a multi-functional tool for the laboratory or factory, offering superior solutions for analytical challenges.

TimePro™ and FilmPro™ introduced by CRAIC

CRAIC Technologies has developed software to measure time-dependent changes of microscopic samples in full UV-VIS-NIR reflectance, absorbance and emission spectra.

The new CRAIC TimePro™ Kinetic Spectroscopy package is designed to be used with Lambdafire™ software equipped CRAIC Technology microspectrophotometers. CRAIC TimePro™ allows the user to monitor changes in the spectra over time, providing a unique and valuable tool for chemists and biological researchers.

CRAIC FilmPro™ is a film thickness measurement software package developed for CRAIC microspectrophotometres equipped with the Lambdafire™ software. It allows the user to rapidly measure the thickness of thin films and analyse many materials on both transparent and opaque substrates. It is ideal for determining the thin film thickness on semiconductors, MEMS devices, disk drives, flat panel displays, and more. This powerful and flexible software can be used in many different fields and in everything from research to industrial settings.

New CRAIC 20/30 PV™ – Seamless Fluorescence & Raman Microspectroscopy from UV to NIR

Elliot Scientific is now offering the new 20/30 PV™ microspectrophotometer from CRAIC Technologies to scientists in the UK and Ireland. As the latest product of the company, the 20/30 PV™ microspectrophotometer excels in non-destructive rapid analysis of many types of sub-micron or larger samples from the deep ultraviolet to the near infrared using multiple techniques that include:

  • Absorbance
  • Reflectance
  • Raman
  • Luminescence
  • Fluorescence

The flagship system can also be used to image microscopic samples in the UV, visible, and NIR via its research grade optics. Applications are numerous and include materials science research, forensic analysis of trace evidence and documents, spectral analysis of minerals, measurement of protein crystals, contamination analysis on hard drives and thin film measurement on patterned semiconductors.

Dr. Paul Martin, President of CRAIC Technologies, told Elliot Scientific that the cutting-edge 20/30 PV™ microspectrophotometer offers more power and capabilities than any previous CRAIC instrument and has “up to twice the sensitivity of previous models, an extended spectral range and all new software”.

Touch screen controls, sophisticated software, calibrated variable apertures and other innovations all point to a new level of sophistication for microanalysis that makes the 20/30 PV™ more than just a scientific instrument… it is the solution to your analytical challenges.
