A new and improved Raman family

The proof is in the images. The DXR3 Raman family of instruments  brings advanced imaging capabilities like particle analysis and 3D confocal imaging while improving stability and expanding laser and camera offerings. These capabilities are in addition to minimal sample prep and ease of use which make Raman a top analytical technique for pharmaceutical, polymer/chemical, microplastics, nanomaterials and other material science applications.

Raman spectroscopy categories

With the Thermo Scientific DXR3 Family of Raman instruments, you can use Raman spectroscopy, microscopy, and imaging that quickly creates research grade images giving viewers instant information on the chemical, structural and elemental characteristics of their sample.
