The Thermo Scientific™ Nicolet™ RaptIR™ FTIR Microscope is designed to enable researchers to rapidly locate and identify trace materials, inclusions, impurities and microparticles along with the distribution of these materials within a sample. The microscope includes a large working area and heavy-duty stage, which allow users to investigate a wide range of samples up to 4 centimeters thick and 5 kilograms in weight. In addition, enhanced automation makes it possible to identify thousands of particles on a 1cm2 filter quickly and efficiently.
With the powerful, highly intuitive 64-bit Thermo Scientific™ OMNIC™ Paradigm™ Software, users of varying experience levels can swiftly navigate and make sense of complex samples. They can locate areas of interest, collect high-spatial resolution visual and infrared data, and generate accurate results in multiple report formats with minimal effort.
See it fast. Identify it faster.
With the Nicolet RaptIR FTIR Microscope, researchers in a broad range of fields such as pharmaceuticals, environmental analysis, forensics, art conservation and electronics can obtain diverse quantitative and kinetic information about their samples and identify unknown substances. The Nicolet RaptIR FTIR Microscope provides clear guidance at every step of the analytical workflow, and a new wide-area view enables users to quickly pinpoint areas of interest. Additionally, a diffraction-limited infrared objective lens produces ultra-sharp images.
Paired with the Thermo Scientific™ Nicolet™ iS50 FTIR Spectrometer, the system can acquire data for organic and inorganic samples such as pastes, gels, gases, liquids, powders, or micron-sized particulates. The Nicolet iS50 System can acquire data using far-infrared to visible range spectrometry, highly automated operations and a built-in mid/farIR diamond ATR. Plus, the full-sized sample compartment can be adapted for TGA-IR (deformulation) studies or FT-Raman.
From the state-of-the-art mainframe and heavy-duty sampling stage to the well-developed software platform, the research-grade Nicolet RaptIR FTIR Microscope helps users get answers in microns and minutes.
