The IDRaman mini is the smallest, portable, most powerful handheld Raman instrument available. It is designed to make rapid and accurate measurements that can be used to identify, authenticate and verify samples. The IDRaman mini is ideal for:
• Authentication analysis
• Counterfeit detection
• Rapid material identification
• Verification of incoming materials
• Harsh and demanding environments
• In-line or at-line testing
From rugged field measurements of chemical and explosive agents to quality assurance and quality control in the laboratory, the IDRaman mini is a truly compact choice for fast and accurate measurements.
IDRaman uses an internal calibration routine to ensure the most accurate Raman shift data is acquired. Measuring most samples in less than 9 seconds, the IDRaman provides visual confirmation of results and displays both the sample and library spectrum with a confidence factor. You can store a library of thousands of compounds in the IDRaman. Using a proprietary fluorescence rejection algorithm, the IDRaman mini minimizes both false positive and false negative results. With IDRaman’s Raster Orbital Scanning technology, the limitation of weak signals from unknown and non-uniform samples is overcome.
