Mid-Infrared Rapid Imaging Microscopy System - Spero™

The Spero developed by Daylight Solutions is a purpose built fully integrated high spatial resolution high throughput Mid Infrared rapid imaging microscopy system. Spero incorporates Quantum Cascade Laser technologies and provides full frame, real-time imaging capabilities previously unavailable with bench top instrumentation.

Key Features

Some of the key features of Spero include::

  • Real-time chemical imaging
  • Rapid acquisition of full spectrum hyperspectral datacubes
  • High-brightness, broadly tunable laser source
  • Synchrotron class spatial resolution and sensitivity
  • Specifically designed for mid-infrared spectral imaging analysis of materials research and biomedical samples
  • Reflection and transmission modes of operation
  • Fully automated stage
  • Visible and infrared high N.A objectives
  • Instrument control and data display via Ethernet to PC
  • Turn-key small foot print integrated mid Infrared  chemical imaging incorporating room temperature focal plane array
