Focus on your job, it takes care of the rest!

Forget long and tedious preparation operations before getting your Raman image. LabRAM Soleil™ offers advanced automated functions and, in combination with the EasyImage™ wizard, it dramatically reduces parameter setting time and ensures maximum stability and reproducibility:

  • True self-operating system
  • EasyImage™ guided operation wizard
  • Auto-alignment: automatically check and readjust the alignment within a few seconds according to environmental conditions
  • SmartID™: no more risk to use the wrong objective or wrong parameters
  • Remote maintenance

Ultrafast imaging: Raman imaging has never been so fast!

Due to a higher optomechanical stability, advanced and patented video Raman matching technology, LabRAM Soleil™ makes possible high-quality Raman imaging up to 100 times faster than a conventional Raman spectrometer.

  • SmartSampling™: New mapping algorithm, acquiring most contributive points first, is turning hours maps into minutes.
  • TurboDrive™: Fast grating turret drive – up to 400 nm/s
  • 4 different SWIFT™ functions:
    • SWIFT
    • SWIFT™ XS: Ultra Mode: Fast Raman imaging: up to 1400 spectra/s – High Contrast Mode: fast readout rates and enhanced signal
    • SWIFT™ XR: Fast large spectral range acquisitions using Multi Windows mode
    • Repetitive SWIFT™: Continuously improve the S/N ratio over time

Facing all analytical challenges:

From materials studies to polymers, and biological to pharmaceutical laboratories, LabRAM Soleil™ can be easily adapted for each application.  Its advanced modularity and flexibility makes it a perfect Raman microscopy system, for both academic research laboratories and industrial quality control departments.

  • Up to 4 internal lasers and 6 different filters
  • 4-grating turret exchangeable in less than a minute
  • Super-low frequency as standard: down to 30 cm-1 Raman shift
  • Large sample compartment: 444(H) x  509 (L) x 337 (W) mm
  • High robustness and simplified maintenance operation
