Virsa™ Raman Analyser
Use the Virsa Raman Analyser, Renishaw's latest high-performance Raman spectroscopy system, to take your spectroscopic analysis away from the confines of the laboratory microscope to new samples and environments.
The Virsa Raman Analyser
Laboratory-grade Raman performance wherever you need it
Renishaw has developed the Virsa Raman Analyser using its expertise in optical design and detector technologies. It combines the power of laboratory–grade Raman with the convenience of a transportable unit.
Features and benefits include:
Flexible, remote sampling with fibre-optic probes. A generous 5 metres of cabling is standard; other lengths are available on request
- Avoid fluorescence with dual laser wavelength options. Use 532 nm and 785 nm separately through individual probes or through the same objective lens with stacked probes
High spatial resolution probe options give rapid microscopic analysis
Precisely locate and focus on the target with the optional motorised, encoded three-axis probe mount and video-equipped probes
- Controlled by Renishaw's powerful WiRE™ (Windows-based Raman Environment) software for the acquisition of Raman data and for dedicated data processing and analysis
This versatile system has a modest footprint. It can be used on a bench or mounted in an industry-standard 19” rack. This makes it ideal for researchers wanting to expand the application of Raman beyond traditional laboratory-based microscope systems.
