CRAIC Technologies Introduces Controlled Heating and Cooling of Microspectrophotometer Samples

San Dimas, CA | Posted on January 20th, 2010

CRAIC Technologies, the leader in UV-visible-NIR microspectroscopy innovation, today unveiled the ability to control the temperature of samples being analyzed spectoscopically. Heating and freezing stages have brought many benefits to scientists wishing to visualise a sample under different temperature regimes. CRAIC Technologies is proud to add this capability to its microspectrophotometers for spectral analysis of microscopic samples throughout the UV, visible and NIR regions. Additionally, samples can also be imaged from the deep UV to the near IR with this new product. The CRAIC Thermal Stage adds to the growing list of microspectrophotometer capabilities offered by CRAIC Technologies. It also opens up new research capabilities for everything from biotechnology to materials science to nanotechnology.

"CRAIC Technologies has been a leader in innovation in the field of UV-visible-NIR microanalysis since its founding. We have helped to advance the field of microscale analysis with our leading edge instruments, research and teaching. The addition of thermal control for microspectral analysis is a necessary step for a number of fields of research" states Dr. Paul Martin, President of CRAIC Technologies. "With the ability to both heat and cool microscopic samples, new horizons are opening for many different fields. These include everything from the analysis of biological samples to chemistry to geology."


The CRAIC Technologies Thermal Stage package, depending upon its configuration, enables a scientist to analyze the transmission, reflectance or fluorescence spectra of microscopic samples under conditions of extreme cold or heat. Operating in the UV-visible-NIR regions, samples can be cooled to as low as -196į or heated up to as high as 600įC. The same system also allows for atmospheric control of the sample environment...a feature that will open up additional avenues of research in many fields.
