Edinburgh Instruments Launches New RMS1000 Raman Microscope
Edinburgh Instruments is delighted to announce the launch of the new RMS1000 Raman Microscope designed and manufactured at their global headquarters in Scotland.
The RMS1000 Raman Microscope is an open architecture, research grade confocal Raman Microscope. It has been designed to be adapted to almost any modern, state-of-the-art Raman application. This high-end research tool has been built with no compromises; resulting in a system that stands alone in both specification and ease of use. Applications beyond Raman such as time-resolved fluorescence microscopy and fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) are all possible with the versatile RMS1000.
- Integrated and External lasers
- Five-Position Grating Turrets
- Two Spectrograph Options
- Truly Confocal
- Four Simultaneous Detectors
- Internal Standards and Auto-Calibration
- Ramacle® Software
- Photoluminescence Microscopy, Time-Resolved Measurements, Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging
Users of the RMS1000 will also benefit from access to the KnowItAllTM Raman Identification Pro spectral library which is available for material identification and advanced analysis. Data acquisition methods such as single measurements, multiple and accumulated scans, kinetic scans and generation of maps (accessory dependent) are implemented by intuitive and user-friendly wizards.
Roger Fenske, CEO, says “We are delighted to expand our molecular spectroscopy portfolio with the addition of the RMS1000. We have designed the RMS1000 in consultation with leading scientists in the field to meet the research needs of those working at the forefront of Raman spectroscopy. The RMS1000 is built on the foundations of our other confocal Raman microscope, the RM5; but, with a focus on increased flexibility and adaptability. In the same way that our modular FLS1000 photoluminescence spectrometer compliments our benchtop FS5.”
About Edinburgh Instruments
Edinburgh Instruments is a global leader in the research, development and manufacturing of state-of-the-art spectroscopic instrumentation for over 40 years. During this time, a worldwide reputation for quality and innovation has been established. Edinburgh Instruments primarily designs and manufactures bespoke spectroscopic systems for measuring: steady state fluorescence, fluorescence lifetime, phosphorescence lifetime and transient absorption.
Edinburgh Instruments was formed in 1971 as the first spin-out from Heriot-Watt University and the first private company on Britain's first University "Research Park”. Edinburgh Instruments (EI) is now located in purpose-built facilities just outside Edinburgh, where it employs over 140 people.
EI has an extensive global distribution network and has a highly prized reputation for the delivery of high quality, accurate instrumentation together with one to one customer service support.
In February 2013 Edinburgh Instruments Ltd was acquired by Techcomp Europe Group Ltd.
