Breathtaking images

at blazing speeds

enhancements provide sharp visual imagery.

Learn more about your material by acquiring high-quality visual and infrared images quickly and easily. The Thermo Scientific™ Nicolet™ iN™10 Infrared Microscope delivers a sharp picture of your sample, unrivaled infrared performance and rich chemical images. Clearly visualize and analyze your difficult samples from black rubbers materials, to counterfeit bills, to rough-surfaced tablets.

quality data, quality answers.

The Thermo Scientific™ Nicolet™ iN™10 FT-IR microscope systems make breakthrough infrared imaging available to every laboratory. The tightly integrated hardware and the intuitive Thermo Scientific™ OMNIC™ Picta™ software package produces outstanding data quality on even the smallest samples.


Achieve high-quality data with these core technologies found in all Nicolet iN10 configurations to ensure your success:

  • Premium FT-IR engine with large, 1.25” optics
  • Exclusive, microscopy-specific beam conditioning maximizes sensitivity
  • DTGS cryogen-free detector ready for immediate use on routine samples
  • High numerical aperture objective and condenser boosts spatial resolution
  • Fully automated masking aperture quickly selects region of interests from the software
  • Fully automatic optimization and alignment of all key components for predictable performance, day after day


scalable capabilities, future ready.

Build a perfect system for today’s needs then add on as your operation grows. The motorized stage, when paired with the optional MX technology package, unlocks the instrument’s automation for locating samples, handling background, control of ATR options, multi-point data collection sequences, and rich chemical imaging. Your options include:


  • Micro-Tip and Hemispherical ATR with automatic and programmable pressure control
  • Up to 3 installed detectors, optimizing your experimental conditions
  • Nicolet iN10 MX technology for ultrafast* imaging
    data collection
  • Micro-sampling tools and cell holders for fast
    sample prep
  • Full size, macro-sampling module with unrestricted accessory options

* up to10 spectra/sec with single channel MCT; up to 160 spectra/sec with MCT linear array


iNnovative, iNtuitive.
