Rosencrantz and Guildenstern - Dark Field / Raman / Fluorescence microscopy system

Unique microsopy system developed by Renishaw Inc. based on thier flagmanship InVia microscope. This is high sensitivity system with integrated research grade microscopes, enabling high resolution confocal measurements both of Raman, dark field and fluorescence hyperspectral images. System employs lasers of 405 nm, 532 nm and 785 nm. Raman signal can be measured from 100 cm-1 with better than 1 cm-1 resolution capability, Raleigh scattering free. Standard filter set is optimised for very high optical efficiency. Dark Field module employ light source to cover 350 nm - 1100 nm spectrum with wide field and hyperspectral imaging as well as in-situ Raman measurements.
