The Agilent 8700 Laser Direct Infrared (LDIR) chemical imaging system provides a sophisticated new approach to chemical imaging and IR spectral analysis. Designed to be used by both experts and nonexperts alike, the 8700 LDIR provides a simple highly automated approach for obtaining reliable high-definition chemical images of constituents on surface.
Using the 8700 LDIR, you can analyze more samples, in greater detail, in minutes vs. hours. This robust solution provides you with more statistical data than ever to aid in the compositional analysis of tablets, laminates, tissues, polymers, and fibers. With more meaningful information available, you can make more informed, faster decisions in product development reducing both costs and analysis time.

Agilent’s innovative design uses Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) light, high spatial imaging, and intuitive Agilent Clarity software to create detailed chemical images. Unlike other QCL imaging systems that use 2D Focal Plane Array (FPA) detectors, the 8700 LDIR employs a single-element electrically cooled detector to eliminate laser coherence artifacts from images and spectra. This produces the sharpest images and most reliable spectral data.
The 8700 LDIR works in either reflectance or Attenuated Total Reflectance (ATR) mode, automatically switching between these two modes by directing the incident beam to the appropriate objective. The movement of the sample relative to the beam is fully automated, this process yields a high-quality two-dimensional molecular image in a remarkably short time period. The 8700 LDIR has two visible channels: a large field of view camera to obtain an entire view of the sample and a microscope grade objective to capture high magnification detail.
