The VirsaTM Raman Analyser is a fibre-optic-coupled Raman spectroscopy system designed for reliable and detailed remote analysis. It offers several options so that users can customize their system to fit their needs. The system includes a spectrometer with one or two internal lasers – the dual excitation option enables the user to avoid fluorescence by switching between wavelengths at the touch of a button. Users also have a choice of Video Fibre Probes (VFPs) – the VFP10 for general and bulk sampling and/or the VFP20C for high spatial-resolution confocal measurements. Renishaw-supplied VFPs can be used separately or stacked to share a common objective lens to enable concurrent analyses at different laser wavelengths.

The analyzer can also be used on a benchtop or mounted in an industry-standard 19” rack providing a transportable option. Additionally, it can also be integrated with third-party systems and probes, enabling users to analyze samples using two or more techniques at the same time without having to transfer them between instruments. Further sampling options are also available, including the SB100 three-axis probe positioner, immersion probes and macro sampling kits.
