HORIBA Scientific Announces Standard Microscope Spectroscopy (SMS) Systems

Horiba Scientific Announces Standard Microscope Spectroscopy (Sms) Systems

Piscataway, NJ  February 5th, 2019  HORIBA Scientific, global leader in fluorescence and Raman instrumentation and other spectroscopy solutions, is proud to be introducing its new Standard Microscope Spectroscopy (SMS) systems at Photonics West next week in booths 1950/1951.

With its unique set of accessories, the SMS family of systems enable any standard microscope to be fitted with a spectrometer and a detector, thereby offering the ability to perform techniques such as Raman, steady state and time-resolved Photoluminescence, Reflectance/Transmittance, Electroluminescence, Photocurrent and Dark Field Scattering. The SMS platform brings unprecedented flexibility and modularity to performing spectroscopy on standard microscope systems, all without compromising the imaging functionality of the microscope.

The concept driving these systems is the ability to either leverage an existing standard microscope, or create a fully turnkey system that performs the microscopy function, and adds one or more spectroscopies as a complementary technique.  Multitask your microscope™ is the theme behind these Standard Microscope Spectroscopy (SMS) systems.

The Optical Spectroscopy Division specializes in custom configurations with spectrometers, monochromators, microspectroscopy, CCD’s and other instruments for fluorescence spectroscopy and other R&D and QC applications. They design systems that meet customers’ individualized research or application needs. The OSD group specializes in designing the tools required to assist investigations when standardized tools do not meet the needs or where no tools currently exist.  The division also sells spectroscopy components for user-built systems.
