Infrared Microscope Maximizes Automation to Improve Microsample Analysis
The AIMsight infrared (IR) microscope is an automatic analysis system that maximizes automation to significantly improve efficiency of microsample defect analysis. This FT-IR microscope accurately measures micro targets by irradiating them with infrared rays, and then gauges the reflectance and transmittance from sample molecules. The AIMsight features several user-friendly functions, such as easy measurement range determination via a wide-field camera, automatic identification of measurement targets, automatic setting of measurement position, and automatic analysis via a contaminant analysis program, assuring that both beginners and specialists can feel confident from the very first analysis.
In addition to trace contaminant analysis and quality control for products such as chemicals, electronics, machinery, and transportation equipment, AIMsight also plays a big role in researching microplastics, tiny plastic particles that have a negative impact on the environment.

Equipped with a wide-field camera and an infrared microscope camera, it is capable of observations up to 10 × 13 mm, while the 330X digital zoom function enables observation of areas as small as 30 × 40 µm.
The AIMsight boasts the highest sensitivity in its class with a 30,000:1 S/N ratio. Operators can quickly acquire high-sensitivity data of micro measurement targets down to 10 µm in size. With the automatic contaminant recognition system, the analyst only needs to simply click one button for the software to automatically recognize targets.
After the data is acquired, it can be analyzed automatically by a contaminant analysis program equipped as standard. An original library of high hit ratios (optional) for analyzing contaminants in tap water and food products is also available.

News / Events
Shimadzu has released the MAP-100
The MAP-100 automates the typical steps needed to isolate microplastics. This improves the reproducibility of the analytical workflow, enables lab technicians to focus on other tasks, and makes handling of reagents safer.
Latest issue of Shimadzu Journal, featuring Forensics / Toxicology, has come out.
This issue focuses on "Forensics / Toxicology", an area where science and technology are particularly important and needed. It starts with two customer interviews.
Given that cellulose nanofibers（CNFs）offer attractive physical characteristics, such as light weight, strength, and hardness, they not only enable materials with advanced functionality, but are expected to be used as a reinforcing material that can reduce the weight of composite materials.

Shimadzu has released the AIRsight, Infrared/Raman Microscope
Raman and FTIR microscopy in perfect harmony. Infrared and Raman Microscope based on a combination of two analytical techniques to provide complementary molecular information. The AIRsight system improves the efﬁciency of analytical operations by making it easy to perform all process steps from sample observation to data analysis.
In order to reduce plastic waste, the development of eco-friendly alternative materials is being promoted. As an alternative, biomass plastics and biodegradable plastics are becoming more widely available. Biodegradable Plastics are plastics that are decomposed into low-molecular compounds by microorganisms in the environment. So they break down easily in nature, which is an opposite characteristic of petroleum-based plastics.
