It’s not every day that a masterpiece is created. But how else does one describe a laboratory instrument that will dramatically improve the understanding of materials across an unprecedented range of industries. With the Spotlight™ 400, IR imaging just became faster, more efficient and more flexible than ever before. It is quite simply the most productive laboratory FT-IR imaging system in the world.
Using spectrum touch software and predefined operating procedures in IR and NIR analyses can help fulfill regulatory compliance requirements, decrease error rate and enable better communication of effective analysis with stakeholders
Product note dscribes TIBCO Spotfire for IR Instrumentation software product from PerkinElmer that creates powerful visualizations to ensure the quality and consistency of your results-every time.
There is an increased interest in the microscopic analysis of samples using FT-IR variable-temperature microscopy or imaging. Application areas include polymer studies, pharmaceutical and food analysis and geological measurements. PerkinElmer offers two options for variable temperature analyses – Linkam variable temperature sample cell and the hot stage accessory.
Human hair is typically 50-100 µ in diameter, previous transmission and ATR studies of its cross section1,2 reveal three major identifiable regions.
Technology improvements and increased use has established chemical imaging as a means of providing information on certain critical quality parameters that is not readily addressable using other techniques.

The following data was obtained from a sectioned of tomato seed and analyzed using the PerkinElmer spotlight FT-IR imaging system. The section was placed onto a Barium Fluoride window and the infrared data was obtained in transmission mode.
There are many stomata (thousands per square centimeter) in the lower epidermis of plant leaves. Two crescent-shaped cells called guard cells, which are rich in chloroplasts, flank the stoma. Starch is produced in daytime by photosynthesis within the guard cells, not in adjacent epidermal cells.
FT-IR Microscopy quickly provides a unique fingerprint of a complicated material made up of multiple constituents. Another advantage of this technique is that it requires little or no sample preparation and that it can generate spectra in a matter of a few minutes.
Of the several types of counterfeiting defined by the WHO, this application note covers the case where the counterfeit is chemically very similar to the genuine product, containing active ingredient and excipients in the correct concentrations. Traditional techniques such as HPLC and NIR spectroscopy could not differentiate the genuine and counterfeit products. They both work at the macro level, so would show only that the concentrations of ingredients were very similar.
ATR FT-IR imaging offers users easy spectroscopic access to “difficult” samples which are hard to image in transmission or reflection, or which have confusing depth structure.
ATR FT-IR imaging with germanium crystals offers the potential for acquiring infrared spectral images at up to four times higher spatial resolution than is possible using conventional reflectance or transmission imaging.
Guide describing all UV/Vis spectroscopy, FT-IR spectroscopy, thermal analysis, hyphenation technique solutions for material characterization.
A recent study has demonstrated that the accuracy of kidney stone diagnosis can be substantially improved by switching from conventional optical microscopy and contrast staining to infrared (IR) microscopy. There are over a dozen different types of kidney stone, and diagnosing the type is important because most effective treatment methods vary for each.
Analyses using infrared microspectroscopy; performed by the Michigan State Police Forensic; Science Division (MSPFSD); Lansing Laboratory; helped to win a triple murder conviction by matching paint from one victim’s clothing to the murderer’s car.
Poster summarizing solutions of thermal analysis, molecular spectroscopy, chromatography and hyphenated techniques for polymers focused on providing more insight into product performance and process optimization that make easier
This poster describes analytical application example of FT-IR microspectroscopy for microplastic analysis which are used as exfoliating microbeads in cosmetics and personal care products
Among the FDA’s top reasons for product recall were problems with sub-potency and tablet dissolution. In addition, recent cases of cGMP violations have highlighted issues in tablet manufacturing. One area where industry is seeking to improve its processes is in the blending area.
This white paper explains the problem of microplastics in water and what are the best instruments to trace, identify, and classify microbeads in products, food, and the environment.
