A Renishaw inVia Raman Microscope system with a full spectrum of laser sources is now running in MAS and available to book. This instrument is a high-sensitivity system with integrated research grade microscope, enabling high resolution confocal measurements. It supports multiple lasers, with automatic software switching of excitation wavelength. The instrument operates with a high through put, non-destructive technique and although lower in imaging resolution than an electron microscope it offers a more dynamic method for investigating the chemical properties of materials ranging from biological cells to semiconductor devices.

Typical investigations:

  • Chemical composition and the molecular structure of a sample.
  • Stress measurements
  • Phase imaging

With biological samples the instrument can:

  • Distinguish between cancerous, pre-cancerous and normal tissue.
  • Investigate changes in cell metabolites and protein structures.
  • Maximise the effectiveness of Raman in studying biological and biomedical materials using StreamLine™ Plus imaging.
