Bruker Launches Ultrafast FTIR Imaging Microscope LUMOS II

Bruker today announced the launch of the novel, stand-alone FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared) imaging microscope LUMOS II, which provides ultrafast FTIR imaging capabilities using focal-plane array (FPA) detectors in its high-end version.

LUMOS II – The next generation in FTIR imaging and microscopy

The new, automated LUMOS II is designed to identify particles, to determine coatings and contaminations, and to reveal polymeric compositions. It can be used for quality control and failure analysis in various industries, such as pharma, polymers, chemical and electronics, as well as in forensics applications.

The LUMOS II can record FTIR spectra and images in transmission, reflection and attenuated total reflection (ATR) mode. Its standard version is equipped with an actively cooled MCT detector, and requires no liquid nitrogen for high sensitivity measurements.

The LUMOS II can accommodate up to three different detectors for specific applications.

The new LUMOS II microscope combines optimized imaging and spectral performance with highest user convenience. Its ATR crystal is motorized and integrated into the objective, allowing the LUMOS II to perform under automation in all modes. Its intuitive user interface provides beginners and experts with an easy way to achieve rapid results.

The LUMOS II also fulfills the requirements of Good Laboratory Practice (GLP). Additional validation options are available for compliance with cGMP/GMP, US, Chinese, European and Japanese Pharmacopeias, as well as 21 CFR Part11. Most options for the LUMOS II can be upgraded at the customer's site.

A system configured for routine use can be upgraded into a high-speed imaging microscope. Due to its sealed ZnSe optics, the LUMOS II is not sensitive to moisture, and does not require dried air or a nitrogen purge.
