NIGHTSEA has a FluoroMax-2 spectrofluorometer that enables us to fully characterize the excitation and emission properties of fluorescing substances. It lets us use science to address the questions ‘Does it fluoresce?’ or ‘How can I best see the fluorescence?’.
The FluoroMax comes standard with a cuvette holder in the built-in chamber for measuring fluorescence of solutions, but we also have a fiber optic adapter. The fiber extends out of the sample chamber so that we can point the probe at just about any subject. We even have a custom-made ‘blackout chamber’ for specimens so that we do not have to work in a dark room.
The gallery below shows a mineral sample containing calcite and willemite in white light, fluorescing under blue light excitation, and the excitation and emission spectra measured from willemite, the green-fluorescing mineral.
We will be using this tool to further explore the world of fluorescence and to help our customers solve their fluorescence visualization and measurement challenges. Contact us if we can help you.
