Due to the fact that waste plastics decompose in nature, the global problem is the increasing occurrence of microplastic particles (MPP) in the environment - in water, soil, food, etc.
BRUKER is the market leader in MPP analysis. We offer a complete range of devices: FTIR microscopes LUMOS II and HYPERION 2000 - suitable for point-by-point measurements of individual particles. Spatial resolution max. 5 µm. Senterra II and RamanScope III Raman microscopes are capable of rapid mapping up to 100 spectra / s. Spatial resolution up to 1 µm. FTIR imaging systems LUMOS II-IMG and HYPERION 3000 - FTIR microscopes with focal-plane-array (FPA) detector - thanks to this unique technology, our microscopes are capable of scanning large areas (1000 spectra / s) with extreme spatial resolution below the diffraction limit (up to 0.5 µm) µm).
Our OPUS software includes very useful features like:
wide range of chemical imaging functions
automated search of measuring positions during point-by-point measurement (the software itself finds the microparticles)
function for automatic spectrum search from every measured particle in the spectra database
statistical function for monitoring the size and chemistry of larger particles
To illustrate how effectively we can work with our devices, we include a video:
With the unique imaging capabilities of our FTIR microscopes, specialized software features and special accessories, BRUKER provides the very best MPP analysis solution on the market. Automated analysis of MPP chemical composition and distribution can be an easy routine.
