Raman Analysis

Raman spectroscopy laboratory analysis for samples such as proteins, polymers, pharmaceuticals, inorganics, minerals and more

Intertek laboratories provide Raman spectroscopy analytical expertise to industry, research and other clients.

Raman measures the interaction of light with matter. Laser light is used as the source, and causes the atoms in molecules to vibrate. Analysing the scattered light provides a 'fingerprint' and reveals information about chemical structure and physical state of samples. Confocal Raman microscopy is available in Intertek laboratories in the USA and Europe. 

Raman applications include measuring molecular and crystallographic orientation. Samples analyzed by Raman spectroscopy include proteins, polymers, pharmaceuticals, inorganics, minerals and other sample types. Solids, liquids, solutions and gases are analyzed with confidence. Real-time Raman spectroscopy allows reactions to be followed in the laboratory or on-line at production sites.
