IM-52

The IM-52 is a compact, portable785 nm laser Raman microscope that provides spatial imaging for exact location of the interrogation laser. Includes a 3 megapixel imager with epi-illumination for both opaque and transparent samples. Capable of sampling micron to macroscopic sample sizes, as well as vial/cuvette. The IM-52 is available in two versions: high resolution (4 cm-1), and low resolution (8 cm-1).
