Raman Microscopy

Raman Microscopy

Visually locate features on your geological samples and then identify chemical, polymorph and crystalline structures without being a spectroscopy expert using the intuitive Thermo Scientific™ DXR2xi Raman Imaging Microscope.

Quickly analyze large areas with ultrafast chemical imaging in real time. Then easily compare and contrast multiple features to understand their chemical differences and distribution pattern to help you characterize your material. Autoalignment and calibration saves set-up time and assures accurate measurements between users. It’s discovery without the learning curve.

Scanning Electron Microscope

Scanning Electron Microscope

The Thermo Scientific™ Phenom XL™ Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) pushes the boundaries of compact desktop SEM performance. It features the proven ease-of-use and fast time-to-image of any Phenom system.

It is equipped with a chamber that allows analysis of large samples up to 100 mm x 100 mm. A proprietary venting/loading mechanism ensures the fastest vent/load cycle in the world, providing the highest throughput. A newly developed compact motorized stage enables the user to scan the full sample area, and yet the Phenom XL is a desktop SEM that needs little space and no extra facilities.

New! XHR option for MC-ICP-MS

The Thermo Scientific Neptune Plus MC-ICP-MS is optimized for the best transmission. The most challenging interferences to resolve are from hydrides, and these can affect high-precision isotope ratio measurements of Si, Mg and K for example. The new XHR option is optimized for resolving these interferences, and achieves an impressive 15,000 resolving power. Combined with the peak position and mass bias stability that you expect from the MC-ICP-MS, you can now make more accurate and precise measurements. Speak with our experts to learn more about this exciting new technology.

Thermo Scientific 1013 ohm amplifier technology is now more accessible. Speak to our experts about our innovative new solutions for gain calibration and tau correction, and hear about the scientific research that 1013 ohm amplifier technology enables. It addresses analytical challenges with respect to limited sample amounts and minor isotopes; delivering precision that is not possible with conventional amplifiers and ion counters. Application areas include clumped isotopes, non-traditional stable isotopes, cosmochemistry and radiogenic isotopic systems.

Comprehensive solutions for isotopes in carbonates and DIC
New! Comprehensive solutions for isotopes in carbonates and DIC

Thermo Fisher Scientific is offering a new comprehensive solution for measurements of C and O isotopes in in carbonates and DIC. With our new technology bundle, you are now able to measure samples in the lab and in the field. The mobile and reliable isotope ratio infrared spectrometry (IRIS) enables onsite measurements of carbonates wherever you go, i.e. in caves as well as on ships. The IRIS will provide you with field data on DIC and bulk carbonates. Together with the lab-based IRMS and carbonate device you receive a complete solution ranging from smallest carbonate samples in the lab to carbonate isotope ratio screening in the field.
