Review date: 20 May 2011 | SENTERRA II Compact Raman Microscope

The SENTERRA II defines a new level of spectroscopic performance and user friendliness in the class of compact Raman microscopes.

SENTERRA II is designed to deliver excellent sensitivity combined with high resolution and state-of-the-art imaging performance. Therefore, the SENTERRA II is the platform of choice for conducting the most challenging research. Due to its high degree of automation, compact size and efficient workflow, the SENTERRA II is the ideal tool for solving real world problems in the quality control laboratory.

• Research-grade spectroscopic performance
• Intuitive & convenient workflow due to software guidance and automated hardware
• Unmatched wavenumber accuracy and precision by SureCALTM
• Straightforward fast Raman imaging
• Compact design with spectrometer included in the microscope
• Full spectral range with all gratings
• Multi laser excitation with fast switching capabilities
• Combination with FT-Raman technology for minimized fluorescence
• Fully automated instrument tests
• Full compliance with GMP/cGMP, GLP and 21 CFRp11

The SENTERRA II allows measuring Raman images and combines the obtained spatially resolved molecular information with high-quality microscopic images of the sample. The analysis is performed contactless and without the need of sample preparation. Being suitable to be used for the detection, discrimination and identification of organic and inorganic materials the SENTERRA II has a wide range of applications.

• Failure analysis of pharma products, electronics and plastics: identification of particles, inclusions and inhomogeneity
• Imaging of the distribution of components in complex materials: multi-layer laminats, varnish, pharmaceutical tables
• Surfaces and interfaces: examination of composition and homogeneity
• Life Science: study of the molecular composition of cells and tissue
• Materials Science: characterization of new materials (silicon, carbon)
• Forensics: identification of trace evidence, drugs
• Art: determination of used materials
