New CRAIC Technologies' 20/30 PV™ - Seamless Fluorescence & Raman Microspectroscopy and more from the UV to the NIR



April 05, 2013

5th April 2013 – Harpenden, UK - Elliot Scientific is now offering the new 20/30 PV™ Series UV-Vis-NIR Microspectrophotometer from CRAIC Technologies to scientists in the UK and Ireland. As the latest product of the company, the 20/30 PV™ microspectrophotometer excels in non-destructive rapid analysis of many types of sub-micron or larger samples from the deep ultraviolet to the near infrared. The multiple techniques available include absorbance, reflectance, Raman, luminescence, and fluorescence among others.

The 20/30 PV™ Microspectrophotometer 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.

Touch screen controls, sophisticated software, calibrated variable apertures and other innovations all point to a new level of sophistication in microanalysis, 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 PV™ Microspectrophotometer's analytical capabilities are useful in many fields of research, and some of the possible applications for it include:

- OLED's & Flat Panel Colour Masks
- Thin Film Metrology
- MEMS Devices
- Forensic Analysis
- Photovoltaic Cell Characterisation
- Surface Plasmon Resonance
- Photonic Bandgap Crystals
- Process Impurity Detection
- Protein Crystal Measurement
- Combinatorial Chemistry
- Kinetic Spectroscopy
- Mineral Analysis
