Raman Spectroscopy

SciMed offer the complete range of handheld and benchtop Raman spectrometers.

The handheld units with 1064nm lasers achieve the best excitation without fluorescence from coloured materials. They are ideally suited for applications such as raw material identification in pharmaceutical manufacturing, for first responders in HAZMAT situations and also for police, defence and border controls.

The range of benchtop Raman models with multiple lasers include instruments suitable for teaching, forensic applications and research laboratories, with multiple lasers and combinations with other measurement techniques.

Raman Progeny – The new generation of material identification using 1064nm laser source

The Progeny system is a new platform for Rigaku Raman. It is the first handheld Raman analyzer that can be customized for seamless integration into any work environment. Lab-quality analysis of the widest range of solids, powders, liquids, and other substances can now be performed to ensure consumer safety on all sites. 1064 nm laser for superior Raman performance At Progeny’s core is an advanced miniature VPG-based 1064 nm optical engine offering benchtop quality analytical performance in a rugged, ergonomic and IP-68 sealed enclosure. Progeny’s fully customisable workflow software is 21 CFR Part 11 compliant and boasts a smartphone inspired…

Foster & Freeman ffTA

The ffTA is a powerful and flexible multifunctional system that provides laboratories with a range of analytical facilities using a single microscope and PC. An optical multiplexer allows the operator to switch from one function to another to perform a range of applications. The various modules are optional and can be simply retro-fitted to expand system capability when required. Equipped with three tuneable laser wavelengths, 785nm (invisible), 638nm and 532nm, the ffTA module is a uniquely versatile device that offers high levels of sensitivity using the 532nm, the ability to supress fluorescence using the near infra-red 785nm laser, as well…

Foster & Freeman Foram – Forensic Raman Spectrometers

Raman spectrometers exhibit numerous features that are specific to molecular structure and provide valuable ‘fingerprints’ for comparing and differentiating materials. For different applications, the FORAM Raman microscopes can supplied with a choice of 532nm, 685nm, or 785nm laser and have a spectral range of 400 to 2000 wavenumbers and 8 wavenumber resolution to meet the user’s requirements. The instruments have an integral video microscope to assist sample selection and a turret of four objective lenses provide on screen magnification of up to x500. A large XYZ translation stage, which can support whole documents, allows alignment and focussing onto areas of…

Progeny ResQ – The Next Generation of HAZMAT Identification

Progeny™ ResQ™ provides emergency responders, law enforcement agencies and the military with the industry’s most comprehensive chemical detection range in a fast and simple handheld form. Faced with increasingly sophisticated chemical threats and global drug trafficking, Progeny ResQ enables users to detect, identify and respond to these threats with confidence at the touch of a button: • detect explosive threats quickly and accurately while wearing M3-type protective suits in harsh environments • identify a wide range of narcotics and illegal drugs removing any uncertainty over results • respond to suspicious hazardous materials that pose a toxic risk to public safety….
