Resolve – Through-Barrier Handheld Raman Detection

Providing a revolutionary new capability in handheld detection, the Resolve system enables rapid detection and identification of explosives, narcotics and hazardous materials through sealed, opaque containers. The system rapidly detects and identifies materials from comprehensive libraries, with Agilent’s unique handheld SORS technology enabling positive identification through a wide range of sealed nonmetallic containers, barriers, and packaging.



Handheld Through-Barrier Identification

Resolve is the world’s only handheld Raman system that enables true through-barrier identification of hazardous or contraband materials. Resolve rapidly detects and identifies materials from comprehensive libraries including explosives, precursors, toxic industrial chemicals, chemical warfare agents and narcotics. 
Which other handheld spectrometer can do this?





Through-Barrier Mode

Identifies through nonmetallic, sealed containers such as colored and opaque plastics, glass, paper, wrapping, sacks, and fabrics.

Surface Scan Mode

Line-of-sight measurements, which are similar to conventional Raman identification systems. The Resolve system can analyze surfaces, exposed materials, and samples in clear glass vials or clear plastic bags.


Vial Holder Mode

Quickly identify materials contained within glass vials in a custom holder.
