New infrared imaging microscope speeds material analysis performance

Thermo Fisher Scientific Molecular Spectroscopy : 19 August, 2008  (New Product)
Thermo Fisher Scientific has introduced the Thermo Scientific Nicolet iN10 MX infrared imaging microscope which is designed to enable analysts to quickly determine the identity and distribution of chemical species within complex structures and random mixtures on a microscopic scale.
Designed for ultra-fast data acquisition, the new Nicolet iN10 MX infrared imaging Microscope provides the ability to perform rapid and accurate analysis of materials ranging from forensic evidence to high-tech polymer composites.

Incorporating Thermo Scientific OMNIC Picta software, the Nicolet iN10 MX provides a new user experience to guide the operator through the entire analytical process, from sample loading to final reporting, in a few mouse clicks. The system's integrated design features a combination of machine vision and spectral identification technology to facilitate data acquisition and sample analysis.

The optical efficiency of the system allows chemical images to be generated from highly scattering samples, such as paper and solid dosage forms, making the Nicolet iN10 MX a powerful tool for counterfeit detection.

The system can be equipped with up to three detectors for optimal data collection. A room temperature detector allows point-and-shoot analysis to be performed without liquid nitrogen. In combination with the efficient slide-on ATR sampling device, this detector makes the Nicolet iN10 MX as quick and easy to use as a basic infrared spectrometer. For increased sensitivity and the ability to collect data from the smallest of samples, a single-element MCT is available. An optional multi-element detector allows the Microscope to collect large images with even faster data collection speed, measuring five by five millimeter areas in five minutes. Additionally, the micro-ATR capability of the system enables images to be obtained at a spatial resolution of better than three microns.

Acceptance of infrared Microscopy in regulated environments has been limited by its inability to be validated. The Nicolet iN10 MX can be validated in reflection, transmission and ATR sampling modes, thereby simplifying the instrument qualification process. The instrument opens opportunities for the application of infrared Microscopy in highly regulated environments.
