The InPhotonics InPhototeTM Portable Raman Spectrometer is useful for rapid identification of chemicals or organic compounds, whether in the field or in the laboratory. It is a high-quality Raman spectroscopy system in a rugged, portable package, equipped with a database of forensic materials. Most samples can be measured through packaging materials (i.e. glass and plastic). It is capable of identifying chemicals regardless of form (e.g. solids, liquids, slurries). Wet samples or water-based solutions do not pose additional identification difficulties.
