Raman imaging has never been so fast!



XploRA PLUS: Research

XploRA Plus Brochure

The XploRA PLUS incorporates unique and powerful functions in a reliable, high performance system, ideally suited to the research and analytical lab.

It is fully confocal, not compromising image quality, spatial or depth resolution. The SWIFT Fast Raman images are the fastest fully confocal Raman images available, typically 10x faster than conventional Raman imaging.

The simplicity and power of the XploRA PLUS is unmatched with an enhanced range of options such as multiple laser wavelengths, EMCCD detection, Raman polarisation and even Raman-AFM combination.




With the groundbreaking EasyNavTM package, it is fast and easy to navigate in-focus, in real-time, to identify the region of interest and obtain sharp, clear Raman chemical images. HORIBA NavMap + NavSharp + ViewSharp apps can be used together or separately to deliver a powerful user experience for all Raman users.
