HandyRam™ II

The HandyRam™ II is a handheld Raman spectrometer with point-and-shoot capability. It is able to identify illicit narcotics, controlled drugs, explosives materials, pharmaceutical ingredients and a wide range of unknown substances in seconds. It also analyzes and reports the components of mixtures. The HandyRam™ II features a durable and waterproof construction yet can also be connected to a PC for detailed spectral analysis, library and record management. It also includes a vial-measurement receptacle in which the HandyRam™ II analyzes the contents of a vial. The unit has the same hardware as the Serstech 100 Indicator instrument and is licensed from Serstech, but uses Field Forensics libraries and algorithms.
