Accessible Raman research

If your organization shares instrumentation or you must rely on a wide range of tools to conduct your research, you want to obtain results fast, using equipment that needs little technical expertise. This means having a system that does not require an expert to set up the instrument, collect your data for you or interpret the results. With the DXR family of instruments, you can use Raman spectroscopy, microscopy, and imaging to advance your knowledge and reputation in your own field of work without mastering a new scientific technique.

Multi-user lab testimonial

The University of Wisconsin-Madison has both a Thermo Scientific DXR Raman Microscope and DXRxi Raman Imaging Microscope available in two multi-user laboratories, serving the entire university population. The laboratory users range in departments including pharmacy, geology, materials science, life sciences, and chemistry.

Hear first-hand experiences on how the DXR Raman instruments have improved these researchers' exploration and results.
