Mapping drug distribution in pharmaceutical products:
You are a chemical scientist and you want to image in a label-free manner chemical compounds in complex
formulation or pharmaceutical tablets. Lightcore Technologies
DC-CRS microscope provides a
versatile and tunable platform to image chemical compounds through their vibrational signatures
