Tool for Locating and Measuring the Same Microscopic Region

Obtaining structural and spectral information from the same location on sample of interest can be challenging, especially when trying to find it microscopically. A unique feature that can be added to any JASCO microscopy system (IR and Raman) is IQ Frame. It is used to find exactly the same location on the sample even when it is removed and replaced or transferred to a different instrument. The coordinates for the origin are registered for the sample holder in both IR and Raman instruments, and imaging analysis is used to exactly position the sample for synchronized measurement.
