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. JASCO’s innovative IRT-5000/7000 Series FTIR Microscopes provide new functions that dramatically improve infrared microspectroscopy analyses. These microscope systems can be easily interfaced with the FT/IR-4X or FT/IR-6X/8X Series spectrometers, offering the most advanced IR microscopy and imaging systems available in the market. Coupling JASCO’s proven technology for IR spectroscopy, accumulated over 50 years, with the most advanced optical design, the IRT-5000/7000 Series offer the best solution for even the most challenging sample analyses.
