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.

Superior Ergonomics and Safety
The Inspector class Raman analyzers maintain the best ergonomics of any handheld Raman. Carefully designed for all end-users – large and small, male or female — the Inspector is tapered, well-balanced, and equipped with a well-placed wrist strap. The result: a handheld Raman analyzer that’s incredibly easy to manipulate and operate single-handedly, for all types of users, with or without gloves.

The spectra in figure 1 illustrates the advantage of the 500 model in an extreme case, for samples that yield high fluorescence response to Raman. The purple line is the response from the standard 785 nm wavelength Raman laser.Its spectrum peaks are completely obscured by the large amount of fluorescence. Alternatively, the 500 model (green line), by virtue of its longer, 1030 nm wavelength, does not produce the same level of fluorescence, therefore clearly revealing the Raman spectral signature. For a small minority of compounds, the Inspector 500 series may be a better choice than the industry standard 785 nm laser wavelength (Inspector 300 series). Such compounds are limited to complex molecules such as proteins, or samples with significant impurities present.
