Shimadzu Scientific Instruments introduces the AIMsight Infrared Microscope featuring automatic analysis functions and enhanced wide-field cameras to enable users of all experience levels to quickly and efficiently identify, observe, measure, and analyze microsamples.
The user-friendly AIMsight Infrared Microscope identifies measurement targets with a simple click on an image in the AMsolution control software and sets the optimal measurement position in just one second.
The AIMsight Infrared Microscope is equipped with Shimadzu’s proprietary wide-field camera and infrared microscope objective. The wide-field camera can observe large areas of up to 10mm × 13mm, and the 330× digital zoom function allows observing areas as small as 30µm × 40µm.
In addition, this instrument provides the highest sensitivity in its class with a signal-to-noise ratio (S/N ratio) of 30,000:1. Operators can quickly obtain high-sensitivity data from micro-measuring targets down to 10 µm in size. The system also includes a function for measuring the diameter of microplastic particles.
The contaminant analysis program for eligible objects is automatically included as a standard feature in the IR LabSolutions™ software and identifies measured objects with high precision using a spectral library for substances commonly detected as contaminants in combination with Shimadzu’s proprietary identification algorithm. The system searches for primary and secondary components, even if the object is a mixture, and displays the probabilities of identified substances. There is no need to specify the number of components in the mix, so the operation is easy, even for use
