Solid instrument, excellent price.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Mineralogy

"The XploRA PLUS has everything you need to do Raman mineralogical analyses. The LabSpec 6 software is fairly easy to use and intuitive, although there are certainly improvements that could be made. All in all, this is an excellent instrument for the price when compared with other instruments in this class."

Great intelligent instrument and software, reliable results with high resolution.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:2D materials

"The instrument is easily operated and quite efficient. It provides us with reproducible and high-quality Raman results for 2D materials. The software is well-designed for the instrument and has many practical functions for processing and analyzing the spectra. I like the automotive sample platform, which can be controlled with the software. This allows us to precisely test even a point on the 2D material."

Raman is providing us a lot of good results
Rating: 2.3

  • Application Area:Neurobiology and diagnosis

"The instrument is efficient and easy to use but the service and the after-sales care is almost zero, not only for the Raman spectrometer but also for other instruments from Horiba."

Raman imaging has never been so fast!

Incorporating unique and powerful functions in a reliable, high performance system, ideally suited to the research and analytical lab, the XploRA PLUS is our best multi-sample, multi-user Raman microscope ever.

It is fully confocal, not compromising image quality, spatial or depth resolution. The SWIFT Fast Raman images are the fastest fully confocal Raman images available, typically 10x faster than conventional Raman imaging.

The simplicity and power of the XploRA PLUS is unmatched with an enhanced range of options such as multiple laser wavelengths, EMCCD detection, Raman polarisation and even Raman-AFM combination.


XploRA™PLUS Features:

  • SWIFTTM 10x faster Raman imaging
  • Improved detection and sensitivity
  • Full Confocality for complete image detail
  • Full optical microscope so you can see your samples
  • Maximum detail, resolution and range for enhanced spectroscopy
  • HORIBA’s OneClick easy Raman analysis
  • NIST traceable and patented Autocalibration options for validated results
  • Ultimate optical stability- robust, reliable, long term operation
  • Automated operation offering simple, powerful reliability
  • 2 year base unit warranty as standard
