Ocean Optics has released the IDRaman mini handheld Raman spectrometer, a small, powerful instrument for sample authentication and counterfeit detection, identification and verification.
The palm-sized IDRaman mini is rugged and dependable, delivering fast, accurate Raman analyses ranging from chemical and explosive agent detection in the field to quality assurance and quality control sampling routines in the laboratory.
The IDRaman mini overcomes many of the limitations of current handheld Raman instruments – especially size, sample measurement and power supply needs. At just 9.1 x 7.1 x 3.8 cm (3.6 x 2.8 x 1.5 in.) and weighing only 330 g (11 oz.), the IDRaman mini is not much larger than the typical mobile phone.
To ensure simple and dependable operation during long field missions or manufacturing shifts where recharging is impossible, the IDRaman mini runs on two easily-replaced AA batteries.
