20/30 Series UV-Vis-NIR Microspectrophotometers
The best performing microspectrophotometer to date
The 20/30 Microspectrophotometer series incorporates the latest technological advances in optics, spectroscopy and software to deliver the best performance in a microspectrophotometer to date. Yet it retains the ease-of-use for which CRAIC instruments are known and represents a further step forward in UV-visible-NIR microspectroscopy.
Deep UV to NIR microspectroscopy & imaging
One instrument offers seamless measurements in:
Easy to use - automation an option
Cooled detector for low noise and stability
Superior image via research grade optics and digital camera
UV-Vis-NIR spectra in one shot... No changing optics!
Variable measurement areas down to sub-micron
20/30 PV™ delivers Perfect Vision for Science™
or 20/30 XL™ for examining larger samples
The 20/30 Microspectrophotometer incorporates many of the latest technologies. Touch screen controls, sophisticated software, calibrated variable apertures and other innovations all point to a new level of sophistication in microanalysis.
Measurements across the UV-visible-NIR range in transmission, absorbance, reflectance, Raman, luminescence, and fluorescence are possible on sub-micron samples to those well over a 100 µm across.
And while microspectra are being acquired, the sample may be simultaneously viewed in the deep UV and NIR with the high-resolution digital imaging system or in the visible through the research grade eyepiece optics.
Images and time-resolved spectral data are acquired and recorded in one rapid seamless operation from across the instrument's extended spectral range. The 20/30 Microspectrophotometer is simple to use, the measurements are non-destructive, and the quality of the spectral data is unmatched.
