Raman system

The Horiba Jobin Yvon LabRAM HR micro Raman system provides ultra high spectroscopic resolution and a unique wavelength range capability that provides both great flexibility and high performance to acquire Raman Spectra with high resolution. It is an integrated, simple to use, and high stability bench-top instrument. This is used to study the raman scattering properties of cancerous and normal tissues for both invivo and invitro conditions.  In addition to this biofluids are also studied.

System Usages:
This system with its unique features is used for raman characterisation of biological and crystalline samples both in solid and liquid phases with high spectral resolution.

Fluorolog – 3

The FluoroLog®-3 is a unique, modular system which allows the researcher to interchange a versatile range of accessories to correspond perfectly with the characteristics of a given sample. This instrument can perform both steady-state and TCSPC lifetime fluorescence spectroscopy with the highest sensitivity and fast time resolution.
Steady State:
Source : 450-W Xenon Lamp
Double grating excitation and emission monochromator
Detector: PMT (R928P) Hamamatsu Photonics, Japan
Time Correlated Single Photon Counting (TCSPC)
Lifetime fluorescence spectroscopy investigates the change in fluorescence over time of a sample when irradiated with UV, visible, or near-IR light. It aids in understanding the micro environment of the fluorophores.
Excitation source: 265, 280, 310 and 460 Nano LED

Fluoromax 2 for steady state fluorescence measurements

Fluoromax-2, ISA; Jobin Yvon-Spex, Edison, NJ.
The excitation source :150 W ozone free xenon arc lamp
Single monochromator
Detector: Photomultiplier tube (R928P; Hamamatzu, Shizuoka-Ken, Japan).
