IMA™ hyperspectral microscopy platform

The IMA™ hyperspectral microscopy platform delivers equally high spectral and spatial resolution. Have this modular system configured to rapidly scan the VIS, NIR and/or SWIR spectrums while mapping a combination of photoluminescence, electroluminescence, fluorescence, reflectance, and/or transmittance. Each IMA™ comes equipped with high throughput global imaging filters; this allows it to measure a megapixel hypercube faster than hyperspectral systems reliant on scanning spectrography.

 

IMA™ OPENS THE DOOR TO

  • Perform complex material analyses like solar cell characterization and semiconductor quality control (e.g.: perovskite, GaAs, SiC, CIS, CIGS, etc.).
  • Study IR markers in complex environments including live cells and tissue. Take for instance the spectral heterogeneity of IR fluorophores emitting in the second biological window.
  • Retrieve dark-field images and obtain a contrast of transparent and unstained samples such as polymers, crystals or live cells.

 

CHARACTERISTICS

  • Fast global mapping (non-scanning)
  • High spatial and spectral resolution
  • Complete system (source, microscope, camera, filter, software)
  • Non-destructive analysis
  • Customization available
  • Sensitive from 400 to 1200 nm in the visible and from 900 nm up to 1700 nm in the SWIR range

CIMA™ hyperspectral confocal system

CIMA™ hyperspectral confocal system is specifically designed for researchers developing the next generation of nanomaterials, such as upconverting nanoparticles for cellular imaging. 

This unique platform provides excellent spectral resolution between 400 nm and 1700 nm: below 0.2 nm in the visible range and less than 0.6 nm in the infrared. Paired with one of the fastest and most sensitive cameras on the market, the galvanometer scanning head boasts an acquisition rate of more than 300 spectra per second.

CIMA provides three acquisition modes: confocal hyperspectral imaging, multispectral fluorescence imaging, and emission spectroscopy of a sample in a cuvette.
