Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc announced the availability of two new DXR Nanocarbon Analysis Packages for the characterization and microcharacterization of carbon nanomaterials. Both packages offer large-scale chemical and materials producers complete systems for carbon nanotube analysis. Incorporating the Thermo Scientific DXR Raman platform, the packages provide information on the molecular structure and morphology of carbon nanomaterials. Designed to simplify the Raman technique for non-specialist instrument users, the packages are said to enhance productivity and provide accurate, rapid and reproducible results. The new packages incorporate rigorous automated calibration and alignment routines, control of laser power and sophisticated quality checks to every spectrum collected. High reproducibility and control of critical measurement parameters provides confidence in results so that analysts know that unexpected occurrences are due to the sample rather than user error. In addition, the packages are designed to guide users through data collection as quickly as possible, allowing more time to focus on results and enhance productivity. The system also includes intelligent software to optimize many measurement parameters, as well as hardware designed so that users can simply load a sample and then return later. The packages have an advanced targeting mechanism, offering the spatial resolution and sensitivity needed to handle the weak signals often generated by carbon nanomaterials.
