Inspector500 Raman Analyzer

Inspector 500

The “500” class of Raman analyzers is equipped with higher wavelength Raman excitation (1030 nm laser) for the specialized case of testing samples that exhibit high fluorescence. For example, samples consisting of complex molecules or samples with a number of impurities are excellent candidates for the Inspector 500 (1030 nm laser). While such samples may challenge the Inspector 300, the 500 allows for the specific Raman peaks to stand out in the spectrum. As with the rest of the SciAps Agent series of Raman analyzers, the Inspector 500 offers high stability, the same intuitive software and interface, fast processing speed, and seamless report generation and data management.

·         Meets IP 67 waterproof, dustproof standards
·         Meets MilSpec 810g

Inspector 300

The Inspector 300 features the standard 785 nm laser, with up to 300 mW of power.  For many applications, the 300 is the perfect balance between good performance and lower pricing compared to other handheld Raman analyzers. It meets industry expectations for resolution, signal/noise and analytical capability. The unit is designed for easy one-handed operation. It’s waterproof, dustproof and highly shock resistant. The comfortable thumb-wheel allows operation with gloves or other protective wear, without requiring the touchscreen for control.  It’s designed to be washable and cleanable to avoid cross-contamination for testing different types of materials. The Inspector 300 is equipped with on-board chemometrics and is compatible with common 3rd party packages.

·         21CFR Part 11 Compliant
·         IP67 rated as waterproof and dustproof,
·         Milspec 810g for vibration and shock,
·         Best ergonomics, easy one-handed operation.

Inspector Scope

The Scope is the first ever combination of in-field handheld Raman (the Inspector 300 or 500) that docks seamlessly to a microscope and digital camera.  It’s the only Raman system delivering high performance materials analysis in the field, and microscopic sample analysis back at the lab.


The Smallest & Toughest Raman Analyzer on the Planet! The ReporteR is a miniaturized, lower power version of the Inspector 300. It operates at 120 mW of laser power.  Truly a palm-sized device, it also meets MilSpec 810G and IP67 standards for waterproof, dustproof and shock resistance.    It features similar Raman functionality as the Inspector 300, but in a lower power laser (120 mW). The ReporteR is designed for specific verification or chemical identification situations where miniature size, low cost and field ruggedness are mission-critical. For many compound identification applications, the basic ReporteR platform offers something unmatched by the competition: excellent analytical performance, packaged at the size of a TV remote, meeting warfighter ruggedness specs, at a fraction of the cost of other Raman units.


ObserveR™ is a handheld, ergonomically designed medium range stand-off Raman system for the identification of explosives, chemicals, toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) and toxic industrial materials (TIMs) in the chem/bio and threat detection markets. The ObserveR handheld model provides remote identification of materials from distances ranging from 0.1m to 3m via an eye-safe laser with auto-focus. The ObserveR operates for up to 4 hours of continuous use with its rechargeable battery, has on-board library matching capabilities and a high storage capacity for large libraries that are user-programmable for new entries.

Advantage Series Benchtop Raman

The Advantage series high performance, low-cost Raman spectrometers facilitate research and development, and quality control in academic and industrial markets in over 30 countries around the world. Designed for analyzing solutions, gels, powders and a wide range of solid materials, Advantage bench top systems feature SciAps patented Free Space Optical Design and incorporate FSX technology to deliver highly reproducible, repeatable Raman spectra. 

Because selecting an optimal laser source is vital to successful Raman applications, the Advantage series offers four standard choices: 532 nm, 633 nm, 785 nm or 1064 nm, as well as additional wavelength options. Accessories and sampling attachments are also available for these systems.
