IR Hyperspectral Imaging

Unrivalled mid-IR spectroscopy.
High performance, label-free IR imaging.
Spero laser-based IR chemical imaging microscope

The Spero is a small desktop microscope for IR hyperspectral imaging, which combines laser-based vibrational spectroscopy in the mid-infrared and wide field of view imaging, with high resolution (approx. 5 microns).

Fast hyperspectral scan speeds (>7 M spectral points per second) allow live video-rate IR imaging which enables the visualisation of the distribution of compounds or crystallisation processes. With easy-to-use ChemVision software included, multiple file formats are available which integrate into standard chemometric software packages.

FTIR and other point scanning techniques can be prohibitively slow for both research and industrial applications. The Spero provides more data, and much faster, than FTIR. The mid-IR range (850 wavenumbers) is imaged in around 30 seconds to form a hyperspectral data cube.

Traditional tissue preparation for pathology involves many steps and may require multiple stains / tags. There may be a requirement to analyse fresh frozen tissue for interoperative diagnoses. However, IR imaging is a non-destructive technique, both label- and stain-free. It can be used to image paraffin-embedded samples and sections of fresh frozen tissue.

What's New?

We’ve recently refreshed our website, and we hope that you will find the changes to be a big improvement. We’ve worked hard to make it easier to navigate the site, and to find exactly what you need from among our vast and diverse range of products.

Missing e-commerce?

One thing that we’ve not carried over from the previous site at this time is the facility to order online for a select range of our products, which you may have been used to in the past. “Off-the-shelf” items represent a small part of our product range; most often a purchase requires a more in-depth discussion between our sales team and the customer to match the right product to the user’s application. For this reason we have focussed on making it as easy as possible to request a quotation from our sales team.

Please rest assured that we will get back to you with pricing promptly, and will work with you to make sure the products you buy are exactly what you need. Once you’re ready to order, our sales team will work through the process with you, to make it as seamless as possible.

Once you’ve selected all the items you’re interested in, by clicking “Add to Quote” on the product page, just click “View Quote Request List” or the icon in the top navigation bar, check your list, set quantities, complete your details and submit the form. Our sales team will respond by email, in a timely manner.

If you have any other questions in the meantime, please get in touch directly.
