Daylight Solutions announces the release of the Spero-QT infrared microscope at Pittcon 2017 in Chicago, IL.
The Spero-QT is the second generation of high-performance infrared chemical imaging microscopes offered by Daylight Solutions, the leading provider of quantum cascade lasers (QCL) and QCL-based analytical instruments.
The Spero-QT shares the wide-field, high-resolution and real-time chemical imaging capabilities of its ground-breaking predecessor but can now produce twice the data in 1/10 of the time while achieving unprecedented signal-to-noise levels.
I thought the first generation Spero microscope was a game changer. The Spero-QT is a whole new world.
Prof. Cyril Petibois - University of Bordeaux
The Spero-QT’s advanced capabilities are enabling new applications in pharmaceutical and biomedical research ranging from non-contact, video-rate tablet and powder API imaging to intra-operative label-free digital histopathology.
The instrument footprint has also been reduced to 22.5 inches (57 cm), the stage travel increased to accommodate up to 3 slides and the sample compartment volume increased to accommodate a multitude of microfluidic devices and accessories. The Spero-QT requires no setup time or cryogenic cooling, enabling more time for analysis.
