Microspectroscopy Selection Guide - FTIR and Raman Microscopes and Microsampling Solutions

Quickly find a Thermo Scientific™ Nicolet™ or Thermo Scientific™ DXR™ microspectroscopy system using the selection  below. You can always talk to an expert to find the best microscope or microsampling system for your daily workload or future demands.

Microspectroscopy allows users to

  1. Locate points of interest on their sample, then
  2. Identify unknown materials using spectral imaging (spatial spectroscopy) or spectral analysis (single point measurement).

The trusted experts will assess the workflow, so that users stay within their budget and have the capabilities they need (for example, micro ATR, ultra-fast mapping, etc.).
