Product News: With the New LabRAM HR Evolution, Research Raman is Made Easy

09 Nov 2012

HORIBA Scientific, global leader in Raman and Fluorescence spectroscopy systems, announces their new LabRAM HR Evolution, the latest spectrometer to join the LabRAM series of research Raman spectrometers.

The LabRAM HR Evolution is highly versatile. It offers a fully automated, extended wavelength range capability. It also has an unsurpassed achromatic optical design with a high focal length. In fact, it provides high spectroscopic resolution and a unique wavelength range capability from 200nm to 2000nm with an access to frequencies as low as 10cm-1 thanks to the Ultra Low Frequency module, providing high content spectroscopic information for chemical and structural identification as well as an accurate spatial resolution at sub-micron scale.

LabRAM HR Evolution is ideally suited to both micro and macro measurements, and offers advanced confocal imaging capabilities in 2D and 3D. The true confocal microscope enables the most detailed images and analysis to be obtained with speed and confidence. Dual Path Optics offers fast, simple switching between UV and VIS/NIR regions. No adjustment or alignment is required.

“We want our customers to have flexibility from their instruments that will make them widely applicable to all their Raman needs,” said Dr. Andrew Whitley, Vice President of Sales and Director of Raman for HORIBA Scientific in the US. “Our Raman systems are widely known for their high performance. With the introduction of our LabRAM HR Evolution, we have taken this performance to another level and made Raman incredibly easy to use. We have expanded the range of options and accessories to include many of our customers’ requirements, including transmission Raman, easy adaption to most major SPM/AFM suppliers, and extension of our software features to include expanded chemometrics, imaging and fluorescence removal options. We think our Raman users will be as excited as we are about this new addition to our Raman family of instruments.”

The LabRAM Evolution utilizes HORIBA Scientific’s new LabSpec 6 Spectroscopy Suite. LabSpec 6 provides complete instrument control and data processing, assuring fast and reliable results. It combines simplicity with powerful analytical functionality, and opens up a full range of experiment protocols, from basic spectrum acquisition to hyperspectral confocal imaging.

HORIBA Scientific’s new LabRAM HR Evolution provides guaranteed high performance and sensitivity, with intuitive simplicity, making it the ultimate instrument for Raman spectroscopy.
