Serstech 100 handheld Raman spectrometers speeding up chemical identification

Scitech presents the Serstech 100 handheld Raman spectrometer
designed to easily speed up chemical identification processes in emergency

A reliable and cost-effective device used for assessing solid or liquid
chemicals with libraries for explosives, narcotics, hazardous substances and
chemical warfare agents, the Raman spectrometer is handheld, weighs 650g, is
portable and easy to use, and is ideal for chemical threat

The Serstech 100 is designed for use by police authorities, bomb squads,
border patrols, HAZMAT teams, fire departments, CBRN readiness teams, prison
authorities, pharmaceutical companies, environmental protection agencies, narcotics
and forensics experts, and quality assurance teams. First responders can
benefit from an all-inclusive kit to minimise delays and increase reliability
when dealing with challenging situations in the field.

With multiple database capabilities, the Serstech 100 handheld Raman
spectrometer can measure through clear vials, bottles, containers or bags.
Multiple scanning methods can identify all unknown substances in a sample;
alternatively, the user can search for a match to one specific substance. All
libraries have been created or validated by Serstech chemists using the
Serstech 100 indicator.

Every substance has relevant GHS symbols, CAS numbers and in many cases rich
text explaining the properties of the substance. All information is easy to
understand and provides instant feedback and decision support. Updates of
software and substance libraries are included along with functionality for
users to create libraries and add their own substances using ChemDash software.
The total number of substances exceeds 14,000 and includes:

  • Explosives:
    Military and civilian explosives, IEDs, precursors and oxidants.
  • Narcotics:
    Narcotic and psychotropic substances from the UN Yellow and Green lists, including
  • Hazardous
    Chemicals: More than 2000 TICs (Toxic Industrial Chemicals) and other toxic or
    hazardous materials.
  • Chemical
    Warfare Agents: Identification of blister, blood, nerve and choking agents, and
    their precursors.
  • Pharmaceuticals:
    Tailor made library developed for and together with pharmaceutical companies.

Serstech 100 handheld Raman spectrometers allow users to create reports
and export measurements for further analysis; manage user accounts and set user
privileges to secure chain-of-evidence; and use on a PC or in the cloud. Intuitive
colours and symbols can be used by anyone and the user interface is designed to
be used while wearing protective gear.

Serstech 100 handheld Raman spectrometers offer laser excitation
wavelength of 785nm; laser output power 3 levels to max. 300mW; and max
spectral range of 400 cm-1 to 2300 cm-1.
