n recent years there has been a sharp increase in the number and form of analyses to which Raman spectroscopy has been applied. The introduction of small bench-top spectrometer systems has certainly opened up the fields of study. However, on the back of the renewed interest in the Raman technique, ever more demanding applications have arisen. For this reason the next generation of Research grade instruments incorporate much of the cutting edge technology found in the bench-top systems, but also provide the higher performance required for samples which prove difficult or impossible to analyze with more routine instrumentation. The T64000 system is designed to provide a versatile platform for Raman analysis. It has an integrated triple spectrometer design for unprecedented optical stability. The instrument incorporates the proven technology of the confocal LabRAM Raman microprobe. The mechanical coupling is rigid and stable. The optical coupling is efficient and throughput is limited only by theoretical considerations.
For years, HORIBA Scientific’s OEM team has been the preferred, reliable and consistent supplier of OEM spectroscopy components. Our know-how in Raman (We are Number #1!) has made it into our miniature spectrometers and systems for portable Raman applications (Process control, Security, Pharmaceutical, Medical, Semiconductor…). As an OEM solution provider, we only quote for OEM volume requirements with Minimum Order Quantities (MOQ) starting in qty 50-100/year.
A range of spectrometers are available for integrating into your own Raman experiment, with focal lengths and resolutions to suit all requirements – ranging from 140mm to 550mm and above.
The new MacroRAM™ Raman spectrometer brings simplicity to Raman measurements without compromising the ability to handle even the most complex samples. Its compact and robust design, including Class 1* laser safety means it's safe for use in most environments, from undergraduate teaching labs to industrial QC applications.
he XploRA INV combines the exclusive automation features and small footprint of the standard XploRA™ Raman microscope with the unique sampling capabilities of an inverted microscope, especially important for demanding biological applications. These applications include: cell research disease detection characterisation of drug-cell interactions pharmaceutical verification of intercellular activities In addition, the inverted geometry allows easy incorporation of AFM units for combined Raman-AFM and TERS (Tip Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy) for highest spatial resolution sample visualisation. The open structure of the XploRA INV also permits the use of virtually all options and add-ons for inverted microscopes, including micro manipulators and “optical tweezers”, specific enclosures for cell applications, etc. The XploRA INV also offers the option to integrate the unique scanning capabilities of HORIBA’s patented DuoScan for rapid spectroscopic multichannel Raman imaging, as well as the new 3D FCI (Fast Confocal Imaging) module, which allows ultra-fast fluorescence imaging for visualisation and verification.
The XploRA Examina™ is the highly versatile, yet easy to use Raman microscope targeted at the Forensic analytical sector. It combines optical microscopy, with sensitive Raman analysis in a “ONE shot “analysis concept. Raman has never been so easy and yet so powerful in the Forensic Lab. The XploRA Examina™ offers simplicity in design and operation so that the Forensic analyst can focus on the sample measurements and routine analysis that is important, obtaining results not just spectra. It provides class leading sensitivity and confocal detail, full optical microscopy yet requires only minimal operator training and maintenance. With HORIBA’s innovative SWIFT™ Raman chemical imaging system and KIA database as standard the Examina™ is ideally matched to the needs of the busy Forensic Laboratory. The XploRA Examina™ philosophy ensures that Raman has become an even more accessible analytical technique for the Forensic analyst.
aman imaging has never been so fast! Incorporating unique and powerful functions in a reliable, high performance system, ideally suited to the research and analytical lab, the XploRA PLUS is our best multi-sample, multi-user Raman microscope ever. It is fully confocal, not compromising image quality, spatial or depth resolution. The SWIFT Fast Raman images are the fastest fully confocal Raman images available, typically 10x faster than conventional Raman imaging. The simplicity and power of the XploRA PLUS is unmatched with an enhanced range of options such as multiple laser wavelengths, EMCCD detection, Raman polarisation and even Raman-AFM combination.
