Renishaw Raman

The Renishaw Raman product line includes the inVia, a high performance Raman microscope renowned for its flexibility and high performance. Perform all types of Raman measurements and acquire detailed chemical information and images from a wide variety of materials.

New inVia Qontor

The inVia Qontor is the new flagship of the inVia product line, launched earlier this year. The Qontor adds a new dimension to the inVia’s performance and ease of use.

The instrument incorporates new focus tracking technology (LiveTrack), for analysing samples with uneven, curved or rough surfaces. Focus is maintained in real time during data collection and white light video viewing. There is no need for laborious manual focussing, pre-scanning or sample preparation.

This new innovation means that accurate spectra can now be acquired from materials with topographic variation. This opens up a whole new range of samples and applications that weren’t previously possible. For example, uneven geological samples can now be analysed without sectioning or polishing.

Acquiring in-focus Raman images of your whole sample is now a reality. Users can track the surface live while acquiring surface or even subsurface Raman data and later view the Raman image and surface topography of their sample in 3D. This innovation not only saves time but, in some cases, allows us to analyse samples that were previously impossible to study.
