SAN JOSE, Calif., July 10, 2013 — BaySpec Inc. has introduced the MovingLab dual-band transportable microscope for forensics and other laboratory and field measurement applications. It offers any two-wavelength combination of 532, 785 and 1064 nm, with a dispersive 1064-nm excitation option for reduced fluorescence interference. The system bundles an epi-illumination microscope with a proprietary volume phase grating as the spectral dispersion element and a cooled scientific-grade detector array (532-/785-nm CCD or 1064-nm InGaAs) as the detection element. Integrated with onboard battery and computer, the whole package is less than 20 lb but provides suitable optical performance and Raman resolution. A simplified interface enables basic users to verify sample ID, automate background subtraction and baseline correction, set integration times and configure user libraries.
