The i-Raman® Plus from BWTEK is an enhanced version of the award winning i-Raman portable Raman spectrometer, powered by innovative smart spectrometer technology. Using a high quantum efficiency CCD array detector with deeper cooling and high dynamic range, this portable Raman spectrometer delivers an improved signal to noise ratio for up to 30 minutes of integration time, making it possible to measure weak Raman signals.
The i-Raman Plus features the unique combination of wide spectral coverage and high resolution with configurations measuring from 65cm-1 to upto 4200cm-1, enabling measurement of stretching bands around 3100cm-1. The system’s small footprint, lightweight design, and low power consumption provide research grade Raman capabilities anywhere. The i-Raman Plus comes standard with a fiber optic probe, and can be used with an XYZ positioning stage probe holder, a cuvette holder, and our proprietary BWIQ multivariate analysis software. With the i-Raman Plus, a high precision qualitative and quantitative Raman solution is at the fingertips of the chemist.
The high quantum efficiency CCD array detector with deeper cooling and high dynamic range provides the best sensitivity. A comprehensive package of sampling accessories for measuring solid and liquid samples provides the users the utmost utility right out of the box so as to enable complete sampling requirements. The probe allows for measurement of various materials in the form of liquids, gels, powders or solids under both lab conditions or demanding environmental conditions.
BWTEK's state-of-the-art BWIQ® Raman data analysis software package provides an intuitive user interface, intelligent algorithms and efficient matrix calculation power, making it easy to use by both expert and novice users to develop quantitative and qualitative methods. BWIQ® combines traditional chemometric models such as Partial Least Squares Regression (PLS) and Principal Component Analysis (PCA) with new methods such as B&W Tek’s proprietary adaptive iteratively reweighed Penalized Least Squares (airPLS) algorithm for automatic baseline correction and Support Vector Maching (SVM) algorithms for non-linear data sets. The BWIQ® chemometrics software package is ideal for online use with the i-Raman® Plus for real-time prediction and offline use with high resolution spectroscopic data. The optional BWID®- Pharma suite supports all requirements for FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliance.
