Technology Forum
Raman Spectroscopy
Raman spectroscopy has become a workhorse technique for molecular analysis with a wide range of applications both in the laboratory and in the field. Participants in this Technology Forum are David Tuschel of Horiba Scientific, Rob Morris of Ocean Optics, and Scot Ellis of Thermo Fisher Scientific.
Transportable Ion Trap Mass Spectrometer
The 1st Detect Laboratory Analyzer is a low cost, transportable mass spectrometer for use in analytical laboratories, field applications, and industrial environments. The ion trap mass spectrometer is capable of detecting a wide range of chemicals over 10 – 450 amu with sub ppb sensitivity. A sub-component version is also available for integration into customer specific OEM equipment. Portable and ruggedized versions are under development. www.1stdetect.com
Featured Products
New Avaspec Sensline!
Avantes' new line of high performance, high sensitivity spectrometers is designed for customers with demanding applications. The SensLine features high quantum efficiency and back-thinned CCD detectors along with Avantes ultra-low Straylight optical bench. The initial products released in this line are the AvaSpec-ULS2048x16-USB2 and AvaSpec-ULS 2048x64-USB2. More info
Bruker ALPHA FT-IR Spectrometer
Compact & affordable, plug & play set-up, easy-to-use software, wide variety of QuickSnapTM sampling modules assure powerful and reliable FT-IR analysis you expect from Bruker. http://www.brukeroptics.com/alpha.html
GlacierTM X Miniature Fiber Coupled Spectrometer
The GlacierTM X is the smallest TE cooled spectrometer on the market, making it the perfect solution for applications that require high performance and portability. Compared to non-cooled CCD spectrometers, it offers higher dynamic range, significantly reduced dark counts, and superior baseline stability, making it ideal for low light level detection. http://www.bwtek.com/product/spectrometer/glacierx.html
Pike Technologies
New PIKE Technologies catalog with accessories for FT-IR, NIR and UV-Vis spectrometers will be released in March. The catalog will include reflectance (ATR, specular/diffuse), and transmission products compatible with all spectrometers. www.piketech.com
TECHSPEC® High Transmission OD6 Bandpass Filters
Edmund Optics High Transmission OD6 Bandpass Filters are perfectly matched to common fluorophores used in fluorescence imaging applications and feature >93% transmission and >OD6 blocking outside of the passband. They are ideal components in spectroscopy, clinical chemistry applications and biotech instrumentation. www.edmundoptics.com/onlinecatalog/
With roots in laser grating manufacturing, Optometrics continues serving the laser industry with original infrared gratings, ruled and holographic wire grid polarizers and gratings ruled in gold for high power, high efficiency IR laser applications. http://www.optometrics.com/products_ir_laser_optics.html
