The LabRAM Soleil™ confocal Raman imaging microscope was recognized for its ultrafast imaging, advanced automation features, intuitive software and robust design. 

Multimodal ultrafast imaging gives researchers the ability to observe samples in different modes for all types of applications. Patented SmartSampling™ makes hyperspectral mapping much faster with an image-compression algorithm, enabling users to map samples up to 100 times faster than before. The QScan™ patented confocal imaging system is a high-quality optical system that enables scanning of the excitation laser over the sample surface, for high confocality of the image multilayer sample, the ability to map the sample without moving it, and more agility with point-and-shoot operation, directly on the video image. 

Advanced automation offers benefits such as true self-operation, remote maintenance and instant objective recognition. Integrated LabSpec 6 Spectroscopy software ensures faster data acquisition routines and analyses, with a new series of apps, downloadable from the App store. These new apps include EasyImage™ to simplify the entire workflow, MVAPlus™ for a full range of multivariate analyses, enabling easy and efficient analysis of chemical components, the Know-It-All™ database, including the HORIBA database, to combine all know-how assets in one place, and 3D Volume™ to ensure high precision interpretation by combining topographic and confocal analysis for 3D imaging. 

“We are thrilled to have our newest Raman LabRAM Soleil microscope recognized for its innovative design and functionality,” said Dr. Andrew Whitley, VP of sales and business development at HORIBA Scientific. “Raman imaging is now faster and easier than ever before.”

LabRAM Soleil™ is now available. More information can be found at:
