LabRAM Odyssey: Confocal Raman Imaging and High-Resolution Spectrometer

The LabRAM Odyssey Raman microscopes are perfect for micro and macro measurements, and they feature sophisticated confocal imaging capabilities in 2D and 3D. With the real confocal Raman microscope, the highest comprehensive images and analyses may be acquired quickly and confidently.

The LabRAM Odyssey is the ideal Raman spectroscopy instrument, with assured high performance and intuitive simplicity. It is commonly utilized for conventional Raman analysis, PhotoLuminescence (PL), Tip Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (TERS), and other hybrid methods.

With a simple AFM update, users can switch from microscopy to nanoscopy.


High Spatial and Spectral Resolutions

The high throughput 800 mm single-stage optimized spectrometer from HORIBA Scientific produces the most sensitive instruments on the market, with high throughput diffraction limited spatial resolution. The high-resolution spectrometer easily characterizes subtle sample information like crystallinity, polymorphism, strain, and other band analyses.

From Deep UV to NIR Without Compromise

Compatibility with a wide range of laser wavelengths and the possibility of mounting up to three detectors means that the measurement wavelength range can be extended from 200 nm to 2200 nm.

The optimized UV configuration provides the most effective option for UV Raman analysis at wavelengths less than 400 nm. Other spectroscopic techniques, like UV Raman, resonance Raman, and photoluminescence, are enabled by such performance, allowing for extensive sample characterization from a wide range of materials.

Ease of Use and Ergonomy

The LabRAM Odyssey’s completely automated intelligent design assures maximum performance while being simple to operate. The LabSpec 6 app store has a huge specialized application range that allows users to modify the software to adapt and evolve to their individual demands.

With its VRM patented function, LabRAM Odyssey provides a high level of automation, such as a laser switch, an automated objective turret, or an automated spatial calibration.

Ultra-Fast Confocal Imaging

The LabRAM Odyssey incorporates the revolutionary SWIFT and DuoScan rapid Raman imaging technologies.

DuoScan is a confocal imaging mode that uses high precision, ultra-fast rastering mirrors to create variable-sized laser macro-spots as well as a nano-step mapping from deep UV to NIR.

SWIFT provides confocal Raman mapping with CCD integration speeds as low as 1 millisecond per point.

The unique combination of advanced optics, detectors, and software provides real confocal Raman imaging with unrivaled data acquisition speed.

Raman-AFM and TERS Compatible

The LabRAM Odyssey’s inherent flexibility makes it the perfect platform for combined Raman-AFM analysis, and research to TERS (tip-enhanced Raman scattering) nano-Raman.

The LabRAM Odyssey can also be equipped with the patented nanoGPS navYX function for comprehensive collaborative characterization with other microscopy modalities such as SEM, FTIR, and others.

Ultra-Low Frequency Module

Using the ULF Module, the LabRAM Odyssey combines easy access to very low frequencies as low as 5 cm-1 with a high throughput single-stage spectrometer. The notch and bandpass filters enable extra sample characterization in a spectral area that is rarely accessible with other basic spectrometers.

Automated Particle Location and Chemical ID

ParticleFinder is a user-friendly tool for automated particle location, characterization, and Raman analysis. Using the LabRAM Odyssey’s superior Raman capabilities, hundreds or thousands of particles can be instantly discovered and described.

Find the Best Conditions for the Analysis of the Sample

The sampling flexibility of the LabRAM Odyssey ensures that research is fully optimized. Standardly equipped with the upright microscope, an open-space microscope can be installed, giving users free space under the objective to adapt numerous accessories like large cryostat and broad travel range stages.

For life science research, the inverted microscope provides ideal sampling for cells and tissues.

CaptuR Laser Trapping

A one-of-a-kind and integrated laser trapping solution that is perfect for fine particle management during microscopic analysis.
