Label-Free, Chemical Imaging – The Spero-QT Infrared Microscope

The Spero-QT Infrared Microscope provides cutting edge high-performance label-free chemical imaging powered by quantum cascade lasers.

Redefining the Pharma Workflow

The Spero-QT is the latest innovation in label-free chemical imaging and represents the second generation of high-performance infrared microscopes powered by quantum cascade laser (QCL) technology.

The wide-field, high-resolution features of the Spero-QT is same as its predecessor, however the Spero-QT has the ability to create twice the data in 1/10 of the time while accomplishing unparalleled signal-to-noise levels.

Additionally, the footprint is smaller and the stage travel can currently hold up to three slides. The Spero-QT’s larger sample compartment area also makes it highly compatible with microfluidic devices and accessories.

Visualizing Chemistry

Spero is powered by Daylight Solutions’ well-established Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) technology and is engineered specifically for mid-infrared spectral imaging analysis. Spero and its software suite, ChemVision™, provide innovative chemical imaging capabilities to users in fields ranging from drug discovery and cancer research to semiconductor analysis and materials research.

I thought the first generation Spero microscope was a game changer. The Spero-QT is a whole new world.
