FTIR Microscopes

An Overview of the FT/IR-5000 and FT/IR-7000 Series of FTIR Microscopes

FTIR microscopy has generally been reserved for measuring specified samples such as small contaminants on polymer films or micro samples transferred to infrared transparent windows. The innovative IRT-5000/7000 Series FTIR Microscopes provide new functions that dramatically improve infrared micro-spectroscopy analyses. These FTIR microscope systems are used together with the FT/IR-4X or FT/IR-6X Series spectrometers, offering the most advanced microscopy and imaging systems.

Coupling JASCO’s proven technology for infrared spectroscopy with the most advanced optical design, the IRT-5000/7000 Series offer an ideal solution for the most challenging sample analyses.
