PRESS RELEASE

New Spectrograph with Imaging Capability launched at Photonics West

Andor enhances its range of high performance spectroscopy detection solutions

Belfast, Northern Ireland, 28 January 2009 - Andor Technology plc (Andor), a world leader in scientific imaging and spectroscopy solutions, are pleased to announce that the latest edition to their Shamrock series of spectrographs will be launched at Photonics West 2009 (San Jose, CA, 24-29 January 2009).

The new Shamrock SR-500i imaging spectrograph is a natural extension to Andor's existing range of spectroscopy detection solutions. The instrument will offer users enhanced multi-track capabilities and imaging quality for simultaneous multi-fiber optic probing, and direct-coupling micro-spectroscopy applications. Configurable with up to two inputs and two outputs, the SR-500i is compatible with a wide range of accessories including the mirror-based F/# matcher, swappable grating turrets and shutter and fiber optics bundles. The versatility of the instrument means researchers can easily tailor and upgrade their system to adapt to changing needs.

Used in conjunction with Andor's range of renowned high performance detectors, including the exclusive Newton EMCCD range, and spectroscopy-dedicated Solis software, the USB 2.0, pre-aligned and pre-calibrated SR-500i provides a powerful, yet user-friendly research instrument.

Antoine Varagnat, Market Development Manager within Andor Technology, said; "The Shamrock SR-500i confirms yet again Andor's reputation for offering flexible, user-friendly, high-end, high-quality Spectroscopy instrumentation. This detection platform is the ideal tool for physical and life science research using both multi-channel and single elements detection".
