RMS1000 Raman Microscope

RMS1000 Raman Microscope

  • Truly Confocal – multiple position pinhole for high spatial resolution, fluorescence and background rejection and application optimisation
  • Five-Position Grating Turrets – for unrivalled spectral resolution from <0.1 cm-1 and coverage over 5 cm-1 – 30,000 cm-1
  • Two Spectrograph Options – standard compact and long focal length spectrographs available for ultimate resolution, sensitivity, and stray light rejection
  • Four Simultaneous Detectors – up to 4 detectors can be installed, including high efficiency TE-cooled CCDs, EMCCDs, InGaAs and more
  • Photoluminescence Microscopy, Time-Resolved Measurements, Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM) – extend the Raman capabilities to fluorescence and beyond

Product Description

The RMS1000 is an open architecture research grade confocal Raman microscope. It has been designed so it can be adapted to almost any modern, state-of-the-art Raman application.

This high-end research tool has been built with no compromises; resulting in a system that stands alone in both specification and ease of use. Applications beyond Raman such as time-resolved fluorescence microscopy and fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) are all possible with the versatile RMS1000.

Ramacle is an exceptional software package written for complete instrument control and data handling on the RMS1000 system. Ramacle controls all RMS1000 functions with a straightforward design concept. It focuses on all modern Raman spectroscopy applications, while at the same time, providing a user-friendly interface with ‘ready to publish’ outputs.

RM5 Raman Microscope Software

The software provides control, visualisation, data acquisition, analysis and presentation of the RMS1000 whether it is used for generating Raman spectra or with advanced upgrades such as Raman mapping.

Ramacle enables sample visualisation, live signal monitoring and parameter optimisation before every measurement. The instrument status and signal are displayed and constantly updated during measurements.

RM5 Raman Microscope Software

Data generated by Ramacle have a proprietary file format. This contains all measurement and instrumental properties, allowing the user to retrieve important information whenever needed and ensures data traceability. Simple input and output functions provide the required compatibility with third party data analysis or presentation packages.

KnowItAllTM Raman Identification Pro spectral library is available for material identification and advanced analysis. Data acquisition methods such as single measurements, multiple and  accumulated scans, kinetic scans and generation of maps (accessory dependent) are implemented by intuitive and in user-friendly wizards.
