PerkinElmer Introduces High-Performance, Portable Raman Spectrometer



Designed to Provide High Quality Data for Efficient, On-site Analysis

WALTHAM, Mass. - PerkinElmer, a global leader in application-focused measurement and analysis solutions, today announced a new portable Raman spectrometer designed to deliver unambiguous, high quality data for use in markets requiring fast, on-site testing, such as forensics, homeland security, pharmaceutical and healthcare testing, mining and on-site conservation analysis. The PerkinElmer Raman IdentiCheck(TM) combines the high spectral performance of a laboratory-based instrument with the convenience of a portable, hand-held trigger probe system.

"Until now, customers either faced a compromise in performance with handhelds or a delay in turnaround time by needing to use laboratory-based instruments," said Andrew Dennis, Raman spectroscopy business leader, PerkinElmer Life and Analytical Sciences.
"This instrument expands the range of samples that can be tested remotely, increasing efficiency for our customers while continuing to provide confidence in the data."

The no-compromise Raman IdentiCheck delivers laboratory-quality spectra (3500-230 cm-1 range, 4 cm-1 resolution and high sensitivity) with a lightweight trigger probe for ease and convenience of sampling through a range of plastic and glass packaging.

The system is controlled using a laptop or tablet PC equipped with a comprehensive suite of software. The PerkinElmer Spectrum(TM) software includes all data collection and sophisticated spectral processing such as baseline correction, photo-bleaching and spectral COMPARE(TM) to make even challenging samples more straightforward to analyze and positively characterize.
