Craic Technologies Release Smart Solution for Trace Evidence Analysis

Published on August 29, 2011 at 6:28 PM

CRAIC Technologies, Inc., the world's leading innovator of UV-visible-NIR micro-analysis solutions, introduces the CRAIC Elixir: the smart solution for trace evidence. This unit is designed to be a cost effective, multi-functional tool for the forensic laboratory.

It combines the ability to measure the refractive index of glass with high resolution microscope imaging and microspectroscopy by transmission, reflectance, fluorescence and polarization. CRAIC Elixir also features the ability to measure Raman spectra of microscopic samples. This tool is able to analyze trace evidence ranging from glass, fibers, paints and more. Even documents can be analyzed quickly, easily and accurately.

"CRAIC Technologies has been involved with forensic microanalysis since its founding. We have helped to advance the field of trace evidence analysis with innovative instrumentation, research and teaching. The CRAIC Elixir is a cost-effective tool for the modern forensic laboratory due to the reliability of its data, its speed and its ease of use" states Dr. Paul Martin, President of CRAIC Technologies. "CRAIC Technologies has built a superior solution that features the highest quality microscale imaging, microspectroscopy, the measurement of glass refractive index and even Raman microspectroscopy. And the CRAIC Elixir is backed by years of experience of its people in both design and the use of this type of instrumentation for spectroscopic analysis."

The CRAIC Elixir solution integrates an advanced spectrophotometer with an optical microscope and powerful yet easy-to-use software to enable the forensic scientist to analyze all manner of microscopic samples of trace evidence. With high sensitivity, multiple analytical techniques (including absorbance, reflectance, Raman and fluorescence microspectroscopy) available, multiple microscopy techniques with high resolution digital image processing and the experience of CRAIC Technologies in forensic microanalysis, the CRAIC Elixir is more than just a scientific instrument…it is the smart solution to your forensic challenges.
