inVia Qontor is a great instrument, extremely stable and reliable for long scans.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Analysis of calcium phosphates and extracellular matrix in tissues

"We acquired an inVia Qontor in our lab recently. Having also used Raman instruments from a number of other manufacturers, we are quite amazed by the ease of use and versatility of this instrument. Currently, we have a one laser system, but since it is rather straightforward to add more components, we will look into upgrades in the future. One of the best features is the LiveTrack, which eliminates the need for have polished/plane-parallel samples for large mappings."

Workhorse of the lab, lots of use by collaborators as well as within our lab.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy of living cells

"Easy laser alignment procedures, nice features such as streamline acquisitions. Some issues ensuring optimal laser alignment, but with help from technical support reasonably precise laser alignment has been achieved. Our instrument was set up to enable dark field imaging as well, useful for visualising nanoparticles. Our setup included three laser wavelengths, with easy switching between lasers."

Great equipment.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Chemistry

"Easy to use and very modular equipment that you can adapt to your needs. the after-sales care team always solve the problem in ae day (if it is possible). Otherwise they will look for a date to visit and solve the problem."

The inVia Qontor is Renishaw's most advanced Raman microscope. With the addition of Renishaw's latest innovation, LiveTrack™ focus tracking technology, the inVia Qontor enables users to analyse samples with uneven, curved or rough surfaces. Optimum focus is maintained in real time during data collection and white light video viewing. This removes the need for time consuming manual focusing, pre-scanning or sample preparation.

The inVia Qontor confocal Raman microscope's cutting-edge technology reduces overall experiment times and makes analysing even the most complex samples easy.

  • Keep your view of the sample in focus while you survey it under manual control

  • Raman-map rough, uneven, and curved surfaces

  • Little or no sample preparation is required

  • View Raman chemical images in 3D and see both the chemistry and the topography

  • No need for a time-consuming surface pre-scan

  • Maintain focus during dynamic measurements, such as sample heating/cooling and during very long measurements when the environmental conditions are varying

Centrus: ultra-fast Raman imaging

Key to the implementation of advanced Renishaw technologies within Qontor, Centrus is more than just a detector. It is designed by Renishaw, exclusively for Raman spectroscopy and imaging. Centrus features high sensitivity detector chips, with thermoelectric cooling for ultra-low noise levels; giving you optimal performance with ultra-fast data collection (over 1800 spectra s-1).
