i-Raman®EX -1064nm Fiber Optic Raman System


The i-Raman® EX is an extension of the award-winning i-Raman® portable Raman spectrometer featuring a 1064 nm version of the patented CleanLaze® excitation laser. Using a high sensitivity InGaAs array detector with deep TE cooling and high dynamic range, this portable Raman spectrometer delivers a high signal to noise ratio without inducing auto-fluorescence, making it possible to measure a wide range of biological samples.

The i-Raman® EX provides spectral resolution as fine as 9.5 cm-1 and a spectral coverage range from 175-2500 cm-1, enabling you to measure the entire fingerprint region. The system’s small footprint, lightweight design, and low power consumption provide research grade Raman capabilities anywhere.

The i-Raman® EX comes standard with a fiber optic probe, probe holder with XYZ positioning stage, cuvette adaptor for measuring liquid samples, and our proprietary BWIQTM multi-variant analysis software. With the i-Raman® EX, a high precision qualitative and quantitative Raman solution is at your fingertips.
