HORIBA Scientific, global leader in Raman and Fluorescence spectroscopy systems, is proud to announce that their new LabRAM HR Evolution, the latest spectrometer to join the LabRAM series of research Raman spectrometers has been recognized with "One of the Best New Instruments 2012" Award, during the Annual Conference of China Scientific Instruments (ACCSI 2013) in Beijing, on April 19th, 2013.
This year, there were 594 products from 281 manufacturers in the competition. These products are evaluated by a group of 60 experts from three of the most recognized associations in the field of analytical instrument in China: China Instrument Manufacturers’ Association, the Instrument Branch of the China Instrument Society, and Instrument.com (exclusively dedicated to Analytical Instrument in China). HORIBA’s LabRAM HR Evolution won the award with only 19 other products, and was the only Raman spectrometer to win.
The LabRAM HR Evolution offers a fully automated, extended wavelength range capability and an unsurpassed achromatic optical design with a high focal length. It provides high spectroscopic resolution and a unique wavelength range capability from 200nm to 2000nm with an access to frequencies as low as 10cm-1 thanks to the Ultra Low Frequency module, providing high content spectroscopic information for chemical and structural identification as well as an accurate spatial resolution at sub-micron scale.
LabRAM HR Evolution is ideally suited to both micro and macro measurements, and offers advanced confocal imaging capabilities in 2D and 3D. The true confocal microscope enables the most detailed images and analysis to be obtained with speed and confidence. Dual Path Optics offers fast, simple switching between UV and VIS/NIR regions. No adjustment or alignment is required.
“We are very honored to have our LabRAM HR Evolution recognized as one of the best new scientific instruments in 2012,” said Dr. Andrew Whitley, Vice President of Sales and Director of Raman for HORIBA Scientific in the US. “The LabRAM Evolution has raised the bar in the Raman microscopy field, with its fully automated ease of use, expanded range of options and accessories, including transmission Raman, and intuitive but powerful software featuring expanded chemometrics, imaging and fluorescence removal options.”
