River Diagnostics BV has introduced the HPRM 2500 high-performance Raman module, optimized for confocal measurements in the near-IR. When coupled with the user's microscope, the modular and fully aligned device provides a highly sensitive Raman microprobe. Its high signal throughput is constant over the spectral range and virtually independent of signal polarization. Wave number and intensity calibration are automated, providing reliable spectrum repeatability, stability and instrument-to-instrument transfer of data. An optional configuration that allows both orthogonal signal polarizations to be measured simultaneously is available.
