Spero Chemical Imaging Microscope

Spero Chemical Imaging Microscope

Unrivaled Mid-IR spectroscopy

Daylight Solutions

In a class of their own, the Spero and the Spero-QT microscopes are the world's first and only fully integrated, wide-field spectroscopy microscopy and imaging platforms based on their broadly tunable mid-IR quantum cascade laser technology.


The Spero system offers unrivaled mir-IR spectroscopy, substantially outperforming FRIT microscopes in spatial resolution, speed and field-of-view capabilities while eliminating the need for cryogenic cooling. This system is faster than Raman microscopes, by orders of magnitude, and avoids the detrimental effects of auto-fluorescence. Spero microscopes enable new data collection modalities such as real-time chemical imaging and user-defined sparse data collection. Their small desktop footprints makes them suitable for labs with space constraints.


The all-new Spero-QT microscope is the second-generation platform in this new class of instruments and represents yet anohter breakthrough in IR spectroscopy, with high-performance, label-free chemical imaging. The Spero-QT system has the wide-field, high-resolution attributes of its predecessor but with the capability to produce twice the data in one-tenth of the time, whil achieving unprecedented signal-to-noise ratios The Spero-QT stage can image up to 3 microscope slides, and its larger sample compartment makes the Spero-QT more compatible with microfluidic devices and accessories.


  • Real-time, high throughput spectral imaging enabled by ultra-high brightness QCL technology
  • No stains or molecular tags required
  • Label-free IR spectroscopy displays pure chemistry of sample
  • No cryogenic cooling needed
  • Quick setup means more time for analysis
