PIKE Technologies

Company Description

PIKE Technologies was established in the summer of 1989, specializing in the development and manufacture of accessories and optical systems that enhance the performance of commercial spectrometers. PIKE concentrates on making the life of laboratory personnel easier. This is achieved through replacing traditional, tedious sampling routines with a range of innovative products and techniques.

Chief Spectroscopic Techniques Supported

PIKE products are designed to work with FT-IR and molecular spectrometers and are based upon the principles of transmission and reflection spectroscopy measurements. The sampling techniques offered can be divided into seven major groups:

  • Attenuated total reflectance (ATR), for analysis of liquids, pastes, and soft solid materials.

  • Diffuse reflectance (DRIFTS), used in sampling of powders and solids.

  • Specular reflectance, useful in thin film composition and thickness measurements.

  • Microsampling products, FT-IR microscope and beam condensers to analyze microsamples.

  • Integrating spheres, NIR, and Mid-IR versions for FT-IR spectrometers.

  • Transmission supplies, including IR optics, pellet making tools, and windows of all sizes and designs.

  • Automation and temperature control are available for many of our spectroscopy accessories to speed sampling and to provide precise thermal analysis.

Markets Served

PIKE products are designed for molecular spectrometers in the petrochemical, food, forensic, biochemical, pharmaceutical, semiconductor, agriculture, and material science industries. In addition, PIKE specializes in custom design of products for specific applications. PIKE products are designed and built with craftsmanship and care to exceed customer expectations.
