HORIBA Releases LabSpec 6 MultiWell for Raman
Product News Oct 24, 2014
HORIBA Scientific has released its new MultiWell module for the acclaimed LabSpec 6 Spectroscopy Suite. The module transforms the HORIBA portfolio of Raman microscopes into efficient high throughput chemical analyzers, coupling the non-destructive chemically rich analysis with high sample turn around and fast return on investment.
The MultiWell module is an add-on for HORIBA Raman microscopes equipped with the standard XY stages. It is compatible with a wide range of well plates, micro-titre plates and micro-spot arrays, including standard 96- and 384-well plates – custom plates can also be accommodated, but may require alternative sample stages to match the plate dimensions. An intuitive Plate Wizard can be used to configure virtually any plate to be used by the Raman system. Optional reference locating tools are available to ensure the highest spatial integrity when loading the plates, allowing compensation for shift, rotation and tilt of the plate.
The Data acquisition routines can be easily customized to meet individual laboratory requirements, whilst retaining the full analytical capabilities of the Raman system. As a result, experiments can range from basic material identification through to advanced characterization of subtle chemistry such as crystallinity, polymorphism and stress/strain. Data acquired through the module can be interrogated using the full suite of functions, including one touch Multivariate analysis methods, and intelligent spectrum identification using the KnowItAll® HORIBA Edition.
LabSpec 6 is simple yet powerful software, which allows researchers to handle advanced analytical functionalities, in multi-user environments without needing to learn the intricacies of a new software platform.
LabSpec 6 and the new MultiWell module are currently available. Contact your local HORIBA Scientific office for further information, upgrade details, and demonstrations.
