SERS: Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering.
We offer a wide range of accessories (packages) for preparing and measuring your samples using SERS technology (micropipettes, colloidal suspensions with different particle sizes, specialized slides, slide holders, measurement automation, etc.). Each package also includes instructions for use. Among the possibilities is newly also using the Niccolloid Silver package, which contains a substrate developed by Czech scientists.
The most common use of SERS technique for measuring Raman spectra:
- Biology: detection of bacteria, viruses, cell analysis, RNA/DNA, proteins, amino acids
- Food industry: identification of bacteria, contamination, plant diseases
- Forensic applications: detection of drugs and explosives, analysis of inks
- Pharmacy: drug development, protein analysis
- Art: pigment analysis
