Santa Barbara, California – Photothermal Spectroscopy Corp. announces new European Applications and Support Office to Support Strong Growth in sub-micron O-PTIR installations.

Photothermal Spectroscopy Corp. (PSC), a pioneer in the development of sub-micron IR spectroscopy via O-PTIR (Optical Photothermal IR) Spectroscopy, is excited to announce the opening of a new European office in Essen, Germany. This strategic expansion aims to better support the company’s rapidly growing customer base across Europe by offering localized applications, and service support.
Managed by Dr. Miriam Unger, Director of European Applications, the new office will serve as a hub for PSC’s European Applications and service support. Dr. Unger’s scientific leadership in photothermal IR spectroscopy promises to deliver a high level of expertise to the European market.

“Our new office in Essen allows us to be closer to our European customers and partners,” said Dr. Unger. “The facility is equipped with a state-of-the-art demonstration center featuring our cutting-edge mIRage-LS system, complete with Raman and fluorescence options, which allows prospective clients to experience our technology firsthand.”

Mr. Sergey Mitko recently joined us to ensure first-class support for the growing European customer installed base. The Essen office will serve as a pivotal location for timely, efficient, and personalized service solutions.

“Having a dedicated European office improves our ability to offer responsive and localized service,” said Mr. Mitko. “We understand the importance of maintaining customer productivity and enhancing user experience, and our Essen base will play a crucial role in achieving these goals.”

Dean Dawson, VP of Marketing adds “We are excited to open our applications and support center in Germany to provide both an increased level of support for our existing European customers and to support our future customer growth. We will continue to work with our existing channel partner network in the region to provide the highest level of applications and technical support”.

About Photothermal Spectroscopy Corp

Photothermal Spectroscopy Corp (PSC), the sub-micron spectroscopy company, has pioneered the breakthrough technique of optical Photothermal Infrared (O-PTIR) technology that eliminates key limitations of traditional IR Spectroscopy providing submicron spatial resolution for IR and transmission-like FTIR quality spectra in non-contact reflection mode. More recently, PSC has developed the mirage-LS. The world’s first sub-micron Infrared and co-located fluorescence microscope. PSC’s vision is to enable the power of IR spectroscopy to be applied to high value problems in industry and academia via the adoption of O-PTIR.

About mIRage®-LS

The mIRage-LS IR multimodal microscope integrates the combined technologies of Raman and Fluorescence microscopy with sub-micron IR spatial resolution imaging and spectroscopy using Optical Photothermal IR (O-PTIR) spectroscopy. These combined techniques will enable life science researchers to easily identify bio-molecular structures of interest and characterize their chemical structure with submicron IR.

Fluorescence microscopy, with its powerful molecular specificity has been a life science research workhorse technique for decades. Vibrational spectroscopy (IR & Raman) are well established techniques, providing broad macromolecular, spatially resolved characterization abilities for life science-based applications.

With the recent advent of O-PTIR, with its submicron and simultaneous Raman capabilities, this broad macromolecular characterization can now be performed on biologically relevant spatial scales, <500 nm, allowing uniquely for IR spectroscopy, sub-cellular resolution, which is matched with Raman and fluorescence imaging resolution.

Now, for the first time, a fully integrated and sample registration free combination of these techniques into a single platform heralds a breakthrough for life science research, allowing researchers to truly exploit these two techniques with powerful synergy, to access additional information and insights not available with either technique on its own.
