Andor Technology PLC (Andor) demonstrated its new flexible range of microspectroscopy solutions at SPIE Photonics Europe, in Brussels, Belgium. Combined with Andor's world-leading CCD, ICCD and EMCCD cameras and spectrographs, the modular microspectroscopy set-ups allow a unique combination of ultra-fast yet highly sensitive microscopy imaging and spectroscopy.
One of the key enabling components is the Andor Shamrock spectrograph wide-aperture slit which opens new doors to a flexible and modular approach to microspectroscopy. Only one detection set-up with a single camera is required to image samples whilst allowing spectral information collection through the same optical path from a microscope.
This new modular range is especially fast performing with Andor's extremely sensitive Newton and iXon+ EMCCD cameras, allowing weak Raman or Photoluminescence signal collection, down to single photon sensitivity.
This Andor solution offers the unique benefits of an all-in-one imaging and spectroscopy set-up, including C-mount interfacing to all major microscopes, seamless kinematic mounting of a wide range of accessories and endless configurations with dedicated ThorlabsTM cage systems interfaces.
Dr. Andrew Dennis, Director of Product Management within Andor Technology, said, "The increasing demand amongst the research community for adding spectral analysis to microscopy imaging of bio-samples, has led us to combine our highly sensitive and high performing cameras and spectroscopes with market-leading microscopes."
