Raman microscope

Wednesday, 08 October, 2008 | Supplied by: Thermo Fisher Scientific


The Thermo Scientific DXR Raman microscope is designed to help non-specialist users achieve rapid sampling and analysis of particles, down to one-micron spatial resolution. The microscope claims excellent spatial resolution, superior performance and unmatched reproducibility in a package that anyone can use.

The microscope is equipped with fully integrated, pre-aligned components for fast and easy field installation and configuration.

This flexible system uses several patented features to automate and simplify the steps an expert would go through to optimise a measurement. Interchangeable SMART components require no operator adjustment and ensure automated system configuration.

Patented auto alignment and auto calibration ensure reliable results. A fibre probe option is available for remote sampling. Furthermore, the microscope uses the Thermo Scientific ValPro complete system validation package, allowing for compliance with cGMP and FDA regulatory requirements. The company also offers a collection of Raman spectral libraries to aid in sample identification.

The microscope is designed to make the Raman technique accessible to a much wider audience, as modern digital cameras have done with photography, by replacing manual adjustments with system intelligence and automation.

The instrument is suitable for a broad range of applications, from the investigative, such as forensic trace evidence analysis, to routine manufacturing troubleshooting, as in the polymer industry. The  microscope brings the power of Raman microscopy to academic studies, for characterisation of geological specimens, for example; to routine product quality control; and to sample authentication in industries such as fine gemstones.

In addition to the microscope, the company also released its new DXR SmartRaman spectrometer. It is a groundbreaking macro Raman analytical tool designed specifically to bring the power of Raman spectroscopy to busy multipurpose laboratories.

To see the DXR Raman microscope at the company's Spectroscopic Solutions Seminar in November, visit http://www.accelacomm.com/jlp/source/35/50080581/.
