IRT-7000 Series


With fast 16 element MCT detector and IQ Mapping - for the fastest sample imaging.

The IRT-7000  is a very fast FTIR Linear Array Imaging Microscope that can be interfaced with a FT/IR-6000 Series spectrometer, offering the most advanced microscopy and imaging system.

System description

The 16 element MCT offers faster response with excellent signal to noise and wider wavelength range than a focal plane array detector. The data processing is done using fast on-board computing so that there is no delay in data being delivered to the imaging software. This make this linear array microscope very fast and accurate.

The IRT-7000 includes up to two detectors as standard; a 16-channel linear array detector for infrared sample imaging and a single-point MCT detector. The combination of the standard automatic sample stage and IQ Mapping offers high-speed mapping analyses over a very large sample area, multi-area ATR mapping, and IR imaging with spatial resolution close to the diffraction limit with excellent sensitivity in a short time. In combination with the FT/IR-6000 with Rapid Scan or Step Scan options, this system offers advanced dynamic imaging as well as time-resolved measurements. For multivariate analysis, Principal Component Analysis (PCA) is included as standard.

  • ● IQ Mapping for in-situ mapping experiments for high speed or samples that can be easily damaged when the ATR is moved
  • ● Rapid IR Imaging experiments
  • ● Up to four objectives with automatic switching
  • ● Exceptional visual observation quality with DIC and polarization options
  • ● Wide area mapping and multi-ATR imaging
  • ● Dynamic Imaging with Rapid Scan and Step-Scan options
  • ● Multivariate analysis PCA

IRT-7100

The IRT-7100 automated FTIR microscope includes a standard mid-band MCT detector, with an option to simultaneously install up to two detectors. It is easily field-upgradable to an IR imaging system by adding an optional linear array detector. The standard automatic sample stage provides wide area mapping and multi-ATR mapping together with IQ Mapping.

  • Fully automated sample stage with auto focus (standard)
  • IQ Mapping
  • Up to four objectives
  • Dual detector capability (optional second detector and optional user-swappable detectors)
  • Field upgrade to IR Imaging System using a linear array detector

IRT-7200

The IRT-7200 Linear Array FTIR Imaging microscope includes two detectors as standard, a 16-channel linear array detector and a single-point mid-band MCT detector. The combination of the standard automatic sample stage and IQ Mapping allows mapping analyses of a larger sample area, multi-area ATR mapping, and IR imaging of a specified area with extremely high spatial resolution and excellent sensitivity in a short time.

  • Full IR Imaging function
  • Full IR Imaging function
  • IQ MappingUp to four objectives
  • Wide area mapping and multi-ATR imagingDynamic Imaging with FTIR step-scan option
  • Multivariate analysis PCA as standard
  • User-Friendly Micro Analysis Measurement Program

    Spectra Manager™ Suite provides many automated functions with a simplified operation. Measurement conditions, microscope sample monitoring/control operations and measurement results can be reviewed in a single screen. The dedicated microscope interface provides various types of measurements such as single and multiple points, mapping, and linear array measurements using a single mouse-click for mode selection. Real-time monitoring of the spectrum and a calculated functional group image can be specified during mapping measurement.
  • Innovative ATR Mapping

    The ClearView ATR objective provides a simultaneous sample viewing as the ATR prism contacts the sample and during ATR data collection. IQ Mapping enables automated multi-point mapping, line mapping, grid mapping and IR Imaging analysis of a microscopic area with a manual sample stage and a single element detector.

    IQ Mapping coupled with a “ClearView” ATR objective allows ATR mapping and ATR Imaging of a sample in contact with the ATR objective without moving the sample stage or ATR objective, while observing the sample area in contact with the crystal prism. IQ Mapping minimizes sample damage and provides high-speed and cross-contaminant free measurements of a relatively small sampling area.
  • Full-Vacuum System

    For FTIR measurement, absorption peaks due to atmospheric water vapor and CO2 can make it difficult to obtain high quality sample spectra. The most effective solution to this problem is the measurement of samples in the vacuum. As a factory option, a vacuum type FTIR microscope system can be provided.

Overview

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. The innovative IRT-5000/7000 Series FTIR Microscopes provide new functions that dramatically improve infrared micro-spectroscopy analyses. These FTIR microscope systems are used together with the FT/IR-4000 or FT/IR-6000 Series spectrometers, offering the most advanced microscopy and imaging systems.

Coupling JASCO’s proven technology for infrared spectroscopy with the most advanced optical design, the IRT-5000/7000 Series offer an ideal solution for the most challenging sample analyses.
