HORIBA Scientific have introduced two new fast Raman scanning technologies. SWIFTTM and DuoScanTM now make incredibly fast Raman imaging a reality.
SWIFTTM – Scanning With Incredibly Fast Times enables unmatched per pixel measurement times as fast as 7ms. A 50,000 spectrum image can be obtained in 6 minutes. SWIFTTM can be used with a choice of different detectors and uses either standard motorized mapping stages or piezo stages for when very small step sizes are required.
DuoScanTM introduces a revolutionary scanning method. Unique scanning hardware enables the image pixel size to be chosen to match features of interest enabling optimized mapping speeds. Unlike many Raman imaging methods DuoScanTM retains the full confocal advantage of the Raman technique without restriction on laser wavelength.
Combining SWIFTTM and DuoScanTM results in unprecedented fast mapping of large samples. Whole pharmaceutical tablets can be measured in ten minutes or less.
