Thermo Fisher Scientific
Microplastics originate from domestic and industrial sources and then move into the environment. Regardless of the origin – fabric wear from laundering, cosmetic creams, abrasive processes in manufacturing – the same questions of identification and quantification arise. We offer several microspectroscopy tools based on FTIR and Raman which are ideal for the detection, identification and quantification of microplastics. From imaging systems where the entire surface of a filter can be analyzed to simple “point-and-shoot” identification to trace the origin of a particle, our microscopy portfolio has you covered. The newest system is the Thermo Scientific™ Nicolet™ iN™5 FTIR Microscope, an extremely simple system for rapid particle identification. Learn more about this new tool.
