The Agilent 8700 Laser Direct Infrared (LDIR) chemical imaging system is designed to bring greater clarity and speed to pharmaceutical, biomedical, food and materials science.
Scientists can obtain actionable information about active pharmaceutical ingredients, excipients, polymorphs, salts and defects to allow them to quickly identify and resolve issues experienced during drug development. The system combines unique Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) technology with rapid scanning optics and intuitive Agilent Clarity software. Importantly, it produces images free from laser coherence artifacts to provide high definition images of large areas. The system’s compact size, lack of liquid nitrogen and automated operation make high-definition chemical imaging accessible to operators of all levels. Now, users can minimize time spent on sample analysis and data review, which leads to increased productivity. Simple load-and-go methods also save time and make it ideal for walk-up use in both commercial and academic settings.
