Different spectroscopic techniques have been combined to provide additional and complementary information for decades. Increasingly, this is being expanded beyond just two techniques and may include spatial/imaging information as well. All of which bring their own challenges. In “Multimodal imaging of cells and tissues: all photons are welcome”, David Perez-Guaita, Kamila Kochana Anja Rüther,...
Shimadzu has released the IRSpirit series of FT-IR spectrophotometers. The two new systems provide the same sample compartment width as Shimadzu’s standard model while being only one-third of its size. They both are capable of using either Shimadzu’s accessories or optional products from other manufacturers.
Observing the crucial first few femtoseconds of photochemical reactions requires tools typically not available in the femtochemistry toolkit. Such dynamics are now within reach with the instruments provided by attosecond science. In a study published in Nature Communications, researchers from Max Born Institute for Nonlinear...
Bruker has launched the Alpha II, the latest in the Alpha series of compact FT-IR spectrometers, with fully-automated test routines for operational qualification (OQ) and performance validation (PQ).
We are sad to report the passing of Dietmar Schoeffel.
Call for Nominations for the Norman Sheppard Award made by the Infrared and Raman Discussion Group.
Researchers from Umeå University in Sweden have described a new method based on molecular spectroscopy to study biochemical changes that occur in the pancreas during the development of diabetes.
The newMicroNIR™ tablet probe from Viavi Solutions enables rapid analysis of pharmaceutical tablets and pills, food manufacturing and seed quality.
New transportable FT-NIR spectrometer with three sampling modules for a range of qualitative, quantitative and adulterant screening applications.
PANalytical has appointed Aimil Ltd as the authorised representative for ASD NIR products in India.
For the first time, researchers have succeeded in establishing the relationships between 200-million-year-old plants using infrared spectroscopy and statistical analysis of organic molecules in fossil leaves.
Achema 2018 is inviting contributions to the Achema Congress and the PRAXISforums; deadline 22 September 2017.
A cooperation between Messe München India and the Indian Pharma Machinery Manufacturers Association (IPMMA) will collocate events jointly representing 600+ global and Indian companies.
Colette Germon, Tony Davies and Paul Jones look at “Combining teaching chemometrics, with attenuated total reflection–infrared spectroscopy and food authentication”. They describe a teaching project based around the detection of food fraud. It is a good example of teaching spectroscopic data handling and advanced analysis techniques. They have investigated how adulteration and...
The new supercontinuum laser from NKT Photonics provides light in the mid-IR region from 0.9 µm to 4.2 µm.
Enhancements of photoacoustic spectroscopy enable analysis of single melanoma cells and improved detection of melanoma.
IRsweep have introduced the IRspectrometer, a table-top, frequency comb spectrometer with µs time-resolution, a large spectral bandwidth and high spectral resolution.
Simple, cost-effective FT-IR microscope with a large field of view aimed at non-expert users. Library searches can be performed via the OMNIC software. Applications include contaminants in food products, identification of defects in plastics, polymers, paints etc., and in teaching labs.
The Pixie is a portable hydraulic press for making KBr pellets. it has a small footprint for limited bench-space environments and glove boxes, and for storability. It has a 7-mm diameter die, integrated force gauge and applied force up to 2.5 tons, as well as an easy-to-use, ergonomic design.
Developed to provide direct calibration transfer without the need to standardise instruments or adjusting models. Uses PermAlign optics, that maintains alignment and performance under all conditions. As well as a reflectance sampling area, a transmission chamber that holds a cuvette or vial in included. Optional temperature control is available.
New version of this infrared microscope based on quantum cascade lasers. It can produce twice the data in 1/10 of the time with improved signal-to-noise levels. The footprint is also smaller and the stage travel can accommodate up to three slides. A larger sample compartment makes the Spero-QT more compatible with microfluidic devices and accessories.
Extends the wavelength coverage of the Vertex 80v FT-IR spectrometer into the THz range. The existing infrared ranges and continuous-wave THz can be used in the same sample compartment, share the same accessories and the evacuated optics bench. With the extension, wavelength range is from <3 cm–1 to 50,000 cm–1 without cryogenically cooled components.
Process FT-IR gas analyser designed for continuous operation without the need for operator intervention. A health monitoring program runs in the background to ensure all measurements are correct. Measurements are performed in real-time and multiple gas components can be measured simultaneously, with no need for carrier or reference gases.
FT-IR-based laboratory gas analyser with a patented 24-bit sampling algorithm for optimal dynamic range. Permanently aligned optics with a Jacquinot stop in the interferometer output beam provide accurate and stable line shape as well as wavelength and resolution stability. This helps achieve ppb-level gas analyses with a standard DTGS detector.
The WADI project is using hyperspectral, multispectral and thermographic infrared imaging to detect soil moisture and those leaks from water mains in rural areas.
