  • Faster identification of bacterial infections using Raman spectroscopy could save lives

    Ota Samek Utilising a Renishaw Raman spectroscopy system, a team of researchers from the Czech Academy of Sciences have been testing a novel way to identify Staphylococcal bacteria, paving the way for faster diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases.

  • Introducing the Renishaw Virsa™ Raman Analyser

    Virsa probe and sample The Virsa Raman Analyser is a versatile, fibre-optic-coupled Raman spectroscopy system designed for reliable, detailed remote analysis. It enables the expansion of applications of Raman spectroscopy to a new range of samples and environments beyond the confines of a laboratory Raman microscope.

  • Prototype Raman probe wins European prize

    Photonics prize probe Banner 180*49 A new fibre probe which uses Raman spectroscopy to identify cancer cells has scooped top prize in the recent Photonics21 Prototype your Idea competition.

  • Detecting counterfeit coconut water using Renishaw’s inVia™ Raman microscope

    Paul Richardson from the Manchester Institute of Biotechnology Coconut water has seen a recent boom in popularity. It is a very lucrative market, with London, England, being the biggest consumer of coconut water in the world (per head). With only five countries in the world supplying the majority of coconut water to the West, this surge in popularity, and resulting imbalance between supply and demand, has led to criminal activity in the supply chain

  • Renishaw technology used to identify microplastics in the environment

    Using the inVia Raman microscope to study microplastics Microplastics are small, hard-to-spot, particles that make their way—from products and packaging—into the environment and cause significant pollution. The Danish Technological Institute (DTI, Aarhus, Denmark) is using a Renishaw Raman spectroscopy system to characterise the extent of microplastic pollution entering Danish wastewater and rainwater systems.
