Project Description

Forensic Raman Spectroscopy

Fast, non-destructive and highly effective, Raman spectroscopy is an ideal technique for identifying and comparing substances of forensic value.

Foram®3 – 685nm, 785nm

Fast, non-destructive and highly effective, Raman spectroscopy is an ideal technique for identifying and comparing substances of forensic value.

Unlike other Raman systems, the foram3 has been developed specifically for forensic examinations and includes dedicated casework management software providing automatic spectral comparisons and data archiving with search and match facilities.

The foram3 can be further enhanced through the addition of a comprehensive library of forensic Raman spectra for the identification of unknowns.

Raman Spectra Libraries

Enhance the capability of Raman instruments through the addition of a wide range of reference spectra databases.

A comprehensive collection of libraries has been compiled by S.T. Japan and formatted for use with the Foram and ffTA systems. In total over 9,000 spectra of common and specialist materials are available divided into 20 categories.

In addition to identification databases provide information on manufacturer, lot number, appearance, purity, IUPAC name etc.
