CRAIC Elixir™ : The solution for Trace Evidence Analysis - CRAIC Technologies


CRAIC Elixir™

CRAIC Elixir™ is the multifunctional, yet cost effective solution for trace evidence analysis from CRAIC Technologies. This full-featured yet flexibly configured instrument offers the following capabilities:

  • Microspectroscopy
  • Raman microspectroscopy
  • Glass refractive index measurements
  • High resolution color imaging
  • Polarization imaging and microspectroscopy
  • Fluorescence imaging and microspectroscopy

CRAIC Elixir™ incorporates superior optics, the highest quality spectrophotometers, high resolution digital imaging, and cutting edge software…all tied together with our Lightswitch by CRAIC™ optical multiplexer. With our Lightswitch by CRAIC™ proprietary technology, CRAIC Elixir™ retains the ease-of-use for which CRAIC instruments are known, while being capable of everything from UV-visible-NIR microspectroscopy, high resolution microscopic imaging, refractive index measurements and more.

With an attractive price-entry point, the CRAIC Elixir™ microspectrophotometer utilizes tested technologies to allow you to measure transmission, Raman, reflectance, polarization and fluorescence spectra of microscopic sample areas. And while microspectra™ are being acquired, the sample may be simultaneously imaged with a high-resolution color digital imaging system or through eyepieces. Additional features may also include measuring the refractive index of glass fragments as well as microcolorimetry.

The CRAIC Elixir™ is built to yield superior quality images and spectra by many different methods all for an attractive price.
