Renishaw plc's inVia range of Raman microscopes includes an entry-level version and the automated inVia Reflex. The modular systems feature a kinematic mounting system that allows components to be easily upgraded. The RenCam CCD detector offers ultralow signal detection with minimum noise for Raman spectroscopy applications. The microscopes come with Wire 2.0 software, which provides intuitive operation, data manipulation, a configuration interface and compatibility with standard software packages. Automated operations include instrument configuration and validation after switching excitation wavelengths, alignment optimization with built-in system performance validation and switching to confocal operation.
