The recently launched RMS1000 Raman microscope from Edinburgh Instruments is designed and built at the company’s global headquarters in Scotland.
The RMS1000 Raman microscope is a type of open-architecture, research-grade confocal Raman microscope. It can be adapted to nearly any advanced, high-tech Raman application. This high-end research instrument has been engineered without any compromises, resulting in an instrument that is unparalleled in both specification and user-friendliness.
Besides Raman, applications such as fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) and time-resolved fluorescence microscopy can also be performed with the versatile RMS1000.
Key Features of the RMS1000 Raman Microscope
- 100% confocal
- Built-in and external lasers
- Auto-calibration and internal standards
- Five-position grating turrets
- Four simultaneous detectors
- Photoluminescence microscopy, fluorescence lifetime imaging, and time-resolved measurements
- Ramacle® software
- Two spectrograph options
Users of the RMS1000 will get access to the KnowItAll™ Raman Identification Pro spectral library, which is provided to help with material identification and state-of-the-art analysis. Data acquisition approaches like single measurements, kinetic scans, multiple and accumulated scans, and generation of maps (accessory dependent) are executed by easy-to-use and intuitive wizards.
We are delighted to expand our molecular spectroscopy portfolio with the addition of the RMS1000. We have designed the RMS1000 in consultation with leading scientists in the field to meet the research needs of those working at the forefront of Raman spectroscopy. The RMS1000 is built on the foundations of our other confocal Raman microscope, the RM5; but, with a focus on increased flexibility and adaptability. In the same way that our modular FLS1000 photoluminescence spectrometer compliments our benchtop FS5.
