The mIRage-LS IR multimodal microscope integrates the combined technologies of Raman and Fluorescence microscopy with sub-micron IR spatial resolution imaging and spectroscopy using Optical Photothermal IR (O-PTIR) spectroscopy. These combined techniques will enable life science researchers to easily identify bio-molecular structures of interest and characterize their chemical structure with submicron IR.

About Photothermal Spectroscopy Company

Photothermal Spectroscopy Corp (PSC) has a breakthrough optical PTIR (O-PTIR) technology that eliminates two fundamental problems with IR Spectroscopy: spatial resolution limitations, and sample preparation. O-PTIR provides sub-micron spatial resolution for IR and provides transmission FTIR quality spectra in non-contact reflection mode. O-PTIR provides all the benefits of ATR without contact-related limitations, and also provides Raman-like spatial resolution, but with IR sensitivity. PSC’s vision is to enable the power of IR spectroscopy to be applied to high value problems in industry and academia via the adoption of O-PTIR.

Why Photothermal Spectroscopy Company?

♦  IR spectroscopy and imaging with sub-micron

  spatial resolution

♦   World leader in nanoscale IR spectroscopy

♦  Eliminate the need for thin sections in IR
