Completing the Labram family of Raman systems, the Xplora is based on a research grade optical microscope offering all the standard imaging options such as polarisation, DIC and phase contrast
Horiba Jobin Yvon presents what it calls a new concept in Raman imaging with the introduction of the Xplora microscope.
The Xplora brings easy-to-use smart microscopy and cost effective Raman spectroscopy to your desktop.
Adrian Knowles, UK sales manager for Horiba Jobin Yvon, said: "This is a significant development for both Horiba Jobin Yvon and the analytical chemist because it combines fast imaging and chemical identification in a single, compact, desktop package".
The light, compact design of the Xplora makes it easy to transport from lab to lab or for on-site analysis at archaeological sites, crime scenes, or mobile labs.
The new LabSpec+ software is fully CFR compliant and uniquely offers the Horiba Jobin Yvon guided operation wizard, Go, enabling quick and easy data acquisition even by a novice.
Integrated spectral libraries provide rapid, non-destructive compound identification with no sample preparation or special environmental conditions.
Superimposition of chemical images on top of high resolution optical images is possible at the touch of a button.
