The Microspectra 121™ microspectrometer incorporates the latest technological advances in optics, spectroscopy and software to deliver the best performance in a microspectrophotometer to date. While retaining the ease-of-use for which CRAIC instruments are known, this instrument represents yet another step forward in UV-visible-NIR microspectroscopy.

The Microspectra 121™ microspectrophotometer combines the latest technologies to allow the user to measure UV-visible-NIR range transmission, absorbance, reflectance, emission and fluorescence spectra of samples ranging from the sub-micron to well over a 100 microns across. And while microspectra are being acquired, the sample may be simultaneously viewed with a high-resolution digital imaging system or through eyepieces with the DirecVu™ package and research grade microscope optics. Deep UV and NIR digital imaging are new capabilities for this instrument.

The Microspectra 121™ microspectrophotometer is simple to use, the measurements are non-destructive and the spectral data is unmatched.
