SAN DIMAS, Calif., Feb. 23, 2011 — Craic Technologies Inc. has introduced the FLEX UV-visible-NIR microspectrophotometer designed to be flexible in configuration, capabilities and pricing. Tailored for cost-effective spectroscopic analysis of many types of microscopic samples, it acquires images and spectra from the deep-ultraviolet to the near-infrared. Depending upon the configuration, samples can be analyzed by absorbance, reflectance, luminescence, emission and fluorescence with high speed and accuracy. Microscopic samples can be imaged directly with DirecVu optics and with high-resolution color digital imaging. There are also a number of packages that can be added to allow measurement of everything from the refractive index of microscopic samples to thin-film thickness. Combined with the company’s Traceable Standards, which are specifically designed for use with microspectrophotometers, and calibrated using Standard Reference Materials from the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the microspectrophotometer is built as a multifunctional tool for the laboratory or manufacturing facility. The system integrates a sensitive spectrophotometer, high-resolution digital imaging, a UV-visible-NIR range microscope and easy-to-use software. With the high-resolution digital imaging, users can store color photos of microscopic samples as they acquire their spectra. Features include a durable design, ease-of-use and multiple spectroscopic techniques.
