Digilab Identity Raman Plate Reader Advantages
Raman spectroscopy offers many advantages over other
spectroscopy and analytical techniques. With the “fingerprint”
nature of the data produced, libraries of spectral data can be
created, stored and easily retrieved, allowing users to rapidly
and accurately perform sample identification.
- Requires minimal or no sample preparation.
- Permits non-contact, non-destructive sampling,
minimizing sample handling.
- Allows samples to be measured directly or remotely
through glass or translucent containers, or through
vessels in a production environment.
- Works with liquid, solid or complex solutions.
- Produces fast, accurate measurements, generally
within a few seconds.
- Minimizes the interference of water, making it ideal
for the analysis of aqueous solutions.
User-friendly software included
with the IDENTITY Raman Reader
helps improve workflow with accurate
data analysis, detailed reporting
and easy access to spectral data.
What is Raman Spectroscopy?
Raman spectroscopy has become an important analytical and research tool used in pharmaceutical, biotechnology, chemical, petrochemical, forensic science, polymers and thin films, and clinical and diagnostic applications. In Raman spectroscopy, a laser illuminates a sample, which scatters a proportion of the light. The majority of the laser light is scattered at the same frequency as the laser and is known as Rayleigh or inelastic scattering. A very small proportion of the scattered light (~10-6 of the incident light intensity) is shifted in energy from the laser frequency, with the shifted scattered light corresponding to molecular vibrations of the sample. This is known as Raman scattering. Plotting the intensity of the shifted scattered light versus frequency results in the Raman spectrum, which is unique to each sample based on its molecular structure. This extremely information-rich radiation is then collected by a spectrometer and sent to a detector. The end result produces a chemical “fingerprint” useful for identifying compounds and characterizing molecular structures and bonding effects.
