Inspector 300

Our most applicable Raman analyzer is the Inspector 300 785nm.  It offers the widest range of compound identification. In addition, our purpose-built ReporteR or Pharma ID models are perfect for more basic material identification and verification.  The sophisticated Inspector 500 1030nm is called on for applications where samples produce a high level of fluorescence. SciAps is the only Raman company that offers this range of price and performance options.


Put Disruptive, Powerful Materials Identification in Your Hands

The flagship Raman analyzer is the ideal unit for in-field operation.  It features an ergonomically designed shape, and a comfortable hand-strap unlike competing models.  It is a rugged, field hardened and wide-ranging analytical package. Take it anywhere — the field, the factory floor, a warehouse, loading dock or lab. The Inspector 300 is optimally configured to balance size, speed, power and recognition of a range of compounds for analysis. It operates at the laser wavelength of 785 nm, yielding a strong Raman signal compared to higher wavelength Raman units, thus exhibiting the best performance for most samples (the 80-90% of the universe that doesn’t suffer from high fluorescence).  The Inspector 300 features a powerful 300 mW laser and high resolution CCD detector – built to be the workhorse of the family.



  • Powerful  The 300 mW laser means it’s one of the most powerful handheld Raman’s ever built.
  • Lightweight  At 3.7 lbs, it’s easy to carry while testing samples for an entire day.
  • Temperature-controlled CCD detector The analyzer remains stable throughout hours of testing in the field, in the warehouse, on the factory floor or at the lab.
  • Thumbwheel control Incredibly easy to manipulate and operate single-handedly, for all types of users, with or without gloves.
  • Powerful processing Fast, accurate matching to stored compound spectra and sophisticated statistical models provide results within seconds.
  • Report generation Create reports on the spot or download data instantly with WiFi and/or USB connectivity.
  • Good mechanics The Inspector 300 is equipped with a vial holder, a novel 90-degree sample tester ideal for bagged samples, and a point-and-shoot adapter, allowing for easy testing of virtually any sample type.  The point-and-shoot adapter is user adjustable to sample depth, allowing easy adaptation to thick or double-bagged samples, or sample bottles.
