New Raman spectrometer offers fast reproducible results

Thermo Fisher Scientific Molecular Spectroscopy : 28 March, 2008  (New Product)
The instrument is the first Raman analyser designed specifically for the needs and environment of the quality control (QC) laboratory. The DXR SmartRaman spectrometer will enable many QC labs to harness the power of the Raman technique for the first time.
The DXR SmartRaman opens the door to highly reproducible, high-specificity characterisation of materials directly through glass and plastic packaging, which saves time, avoids sample contamination risks and reduces error. The system includes a new laser power regulator, which adds a new dimension to the reproducibility of results for Raman. Able to be fully validated with patented auto-alignment and rapid auto-calibration features, the new dispersive Raman spectrometer allows users to easily maintain peak performance, while providing them with high confidence in their results.

The DXR SmartRaman greatly simplifies Raman spectroscopy. The system is configured with SMART accessories and components that automatically identify themselves to the system. This permits automatic configuration and optimisation of the system with each accessory and provides serial numbers of accessories and components for inclusion in data records to support the validation process without any burden on the operator. The system also includes a method development toolset to allow method developers to set up complex analytical methods that operators can execute with a single touch of a button.

The DXR SmartRaman spectrometer provides a method of verifying material ID and composition, and the instrument can even distinguish between polymorphs. The instrument is applicable to organic and covalently bonded inorganic materials. The spectrometer offers fast results and can accept samples in a wide variety of forms (bottles, vials, capillary tubes, NMR tubes, tablets, blister packs, films, well-plates), making it a good choice as a sole analytical technique or as a secondary technique to support a primary technique for analyses that are heavily scrutinised.

'The Thermo Scientific DXR SmartRaman spectrometer is completely unique,' said Dr Ian Jardine, vice president of global research and development for Thermo Fisher Scientific. 'The new level of reproducibility that can be achieved with the DXR SmartRaman and the simplicity of operation allows just about anyone to use it. This significant development is likely to revolutionise the use of the Raman technique for quality control and screening applications.'

In addition to the DXR SmartRaman spectrometer, Thermo Fisher Scientific has also launched the new DXR Raman microscope, which is an easy-to-use, fully integrated system offering excellent spatial resolution, superior performance and the same simplicity as the DXR SmartRaman spectrometer.
