Product News: Rigaku Raman Technologies Introduces Integral Fiber Optic Probe Accessories for Handheld Raman Analyzers

21 Oct 2013

Rigaku Raman Technologies, a leading pioneer of handheld and truly portable Raman spectrometers, recently announced the addition of two compact and easy-to-use fiber optic probe accessories for its Xantus-2™ 785nm and 532nm portable Raman analyzers. Designed for pharmaceutical, research, analytical and industrial applications; the new Raman Probe II and Economy Probe will enable customers to significantly improve routine laboratory Raman spectroscopy and support true in situ analysis of an even broader range of materials.

“As our customers look to improve analysis capabilities and explore new applications with Raman spectroscopy, we will continue to enhance our products to provide valuable solutions to fit their needs,” said Bree Allen, General Manager at Rigaku Raman. “The addition of these two lightweight and easy-to-use probe accessories enables customers to broaden their use of lab-based Raman spectroscopy and truly improve workflow efficiency.”
About the New Probe Models

Using the new probes, Xantus-2 customers will be able to perform analysis on a variety of materials, including dark or turbid solutions, and fulfill applications, such as immersion analysis, that standard spectroscopic platforms cannot achieve. In addition, both probe options are lightweight and small enough to fit inside typical laboratory-scale vessels, enabling customers to easily transport them to any location and share among multiple departments. The new Raman Probe II and Economy Probe are being manufactured for Rigaku Raman by InPhotonics, a leading developer of fiber optic sampling probes and accessories for Raman spectroscopy.
