|The i-Raman® Pro ST unites a high throughput spectrometer, specialized sampling optics and advanced algorithms in a portable Raman system to deliver rapid material identification capabilities through a variety of barrier layers and packaging previously impenetrable with Raman. Using our patent–pending technology, the i-Raman Pro ST can collect Raman signal generated underneath diffusive top layers to identify material inside even visually opaque barriers such as white plastic bottles, paper envelopes, tablet coatings, and more. This removes the need to open containers and come in contact with the material, thus maintaining package and sample integrity. The system design features a large sampling depth and sampling area and minimized power density, facilitating the measurement of samples that can be challenging for conventional focused Raman spectroscopy.
Featuring a high quantum efficiency CCD array detector with a high-throughput spectrograph and specialized sample probe, the system can collect Raman signal generated underneath diffusive top layers while largely avoiding their signature from overwhelming that of the sample. With a sampling area on the order of millimeters, heterogeneous material measurement is improved, giving more representative measurement of sample composition. The laser power is distributed over a larger area, resulting in lower power density and making it possible to measure materials that may be susceptible to photo damage when using conventional Raman.
The system provides versatility for see through measurements through barriers and for focused Raman measurement directly on a sample with easily attached adaptors. The system can be used for Raman analysis across a wide range of applications for rapid analysis and identification covering diverse samples forms.
