Sharing Light and Passion 200 Years of Optical Innovation


Raman Imaging and Spectrometers

The Ultimate Raman Microscope Family

HORIBA Scientific is the world leader in Raman spectroscopy, with the benefits of more than 50 years of innovation in the technique. Raman microscopy is a technique which allows fast, non-destructive chemical analysis of solids, powders, liquids, and gases – today, Raman spectroscopy is used in many varied fields, from fundamental research up to applied solutions.

We provide complete Raman spectroscopy solutions for analytical measurements, research Raman, UV Raman, QC/QA and industrial Raman applications. These include Raman spectrometers, hybrid Raman systems (such as AFM-Raman), modular Raman systems, transmission Raman analyzers, dedicated in situ process Raman spectrometers, and miniaturized Raman instruments for high volume OEM manufacturers. Our Raman spectroscopy instruments are used in prestigious universities, research laboratories, in demanding industries with production lines across the world, and are well-known for:

  • Stability/Reliability obtained from a robust design approach
  • High-performance and speed enabled by our many Ultrafast Imaging patented functionalities
  • Ease of use thanks to our renowned LabSpec software suite
  • Overall improved User Experience and time saved with increased Automation wherever you need it
  • Possibility to achieve nanoscale measurements through TERS by combining the Raman spectrometer with our AFM technology


AFM Upgrade - From Microscopy to Nanoscopy

Your XploRA and LabRAM HR Evolution Raman microscopes, but also your iHR spectrometers, can all be upgraded to NanoRaman with the integration of our AFM and its optical platform, the OmegaScope, to your instrument.
