CRAIC Technologies unveiled the ability to control the temperature of samples being analyzed spectroscopically. Heating and freezing stages have brought many benefits to scientists wishing to visualize a sample under different temperature regimes. CRAIC Technologies is proud to add this capability to its microspectrophotometers for spectral analysis of microscopic samples throughout the UV, visible and NIR regions. Additionally, samples can also be imaged from the deep UV to the near IR with this new product. The CRAIC Thermal Stage adds to the growing list of microspectrophotometer capabilities offered by CRAIC Technologies. It also opens up new research capabilities for everything from biotechnology to materials science to nanotechnology.
The CRAIC Technologies Thermal Stage package, depending upon its configuration, enables a scientist to analyze the transmission, reflectance or fluorescence spectra of microscopic samples under conditions of extreme cold or heat. Operating in the UV-visible-NIR regions, samples can be cooled to as low as -196° or heated up to as high as 600°C. The same system also allows for atmospheric control of the sample environment.
