SMALLER than its predecessors, the new Advantage series of Raman spectrometers from DeltaNu, available from Analytik, promise high performance at lower cost for academic and industrial markets.
Advantage series instruments are suited to the analysis of solutions, gels, powders and a wide range of solid materials. These benchtop instruments feature proven FSX Technology for highly reproducible and repeatable Raman spectra, says DeltaNu, and incorporate the company’s patented Free Space optical design which means users are not forced to use fibre optic probes as with some competitive systems. This becomes an option, making the system more flexible.
A successful Raman application depends largely on the selection of the optimal laser source. With this in mind, the new Advantage series offers four standard options: 532nm, 633nm, 785nm and 1064nm. Other options may be available on request together with a variety of accessories and sampling attachments.
The new Advantage offers an improved version of NuSpec open architecture software. Data collection is simplified with an intuitive GUI, and multiple file formats are available for data archiving. Grams AI spectroscopy software for advanced processing is now included as standard. An integrated library build and correlation matching package complete the software.
The 633nm unit has the capability for kinetic studies, laser power adjustments, and polarisation experiments, increasing its versatility when compared to other Raman systems in this price/performance range.
