BaySpec 1stGuard handheld Raman analyser

Wednesday, 06 October, 2010 | Supplied by: Applied Infrared Sensing

The BaySpec 1stGuard handheld Raman analyser is specifically targeted for identification of hazardous materials, unknown substances and industrial-grade materials. It is designed to meet the needs of people on the move, allowing personnel to quickly and accurately identify unknown chemical substances on the spot. It is battery operated, lightweight, ruggedised and easy to use.

Based on Raman spectroscopy technology, it is suitable for identification and use with: narcotics and illicit street drugs; explosives and chemical warfare agents; hazardous materials and chemical spills; pharmaceutical IQ/OQ/PQ quality; gemstone authentication, etc.

Unlike other lab-based analytical techniques, there is no sample preparation needed. It can penetrate plastic bags or clear and even amber-coloured glass bottles while not altering or destroying the sample, thus maintaining its integrity.

The analyser is designed from the ground up for field use, with an active trigger built into an easy-to-grip handle. Extended battery life (>4 hours) allows continuous, uninterrupted work in the field.

Operated very much like a point-and-shoot camera, the analyser delivers accurate identification results in a matter of seconds. Since the identification is based on the chemical fingerprint on the molecular level, there is no chance of mix up or human error. Run by a full-featured Windows-based compact computer, it is easy to download data or communicate with centralised facilities by Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.
