Insight LIBS system from Photon Machines

Photon Machines’ Insight LIBS platform is a rugged LIBS system with everything required to make repeatable measurements in an industrial laboratory.  Computer-controlled x-y-z stages interface with real-time video to allow targeting of samples.  Users can build repeatable methods for replicate analysis, using custom autosampling interfaces that can be tailored to your specific application.  Broadband spectra obtained with the Insight™ allow multi-element sampling at each point.

Analysis spot sizes are user-controlled and can range from 5 microns to 2 mm – covering the range from microanalysis to bulk analysis.  Laser wavelength is determined after consideration of the predominant type of samples to be analyzed.

addLIBS™ and Pirouette™ software (Infometrix, Inc.) allow elemental analysis, material sorting and typing, and real-time chemometrics.
