Surface Enhance Raman Spectroscopy
SERS substrates, allow the unique Raman fingerprint present in all
molecules to be easily and repeatedly identified. Klarite substrates
enable faster, higher accuracy detection of biological and chemical
samples at lower detection limits for a wide range of markets including
homeland security, forensics, environmental monitoring, medical
diagnostics and drug discovery.
Previous SERS substrates have been plagued by 100% signal variations
and by hot spots where only small areas of the total device showed
amplified Raman signals. By providing a uniform patterned surface
Klarite slides provide control of the Raman process giving consistent
sers signals from anywhere on the active surface. The very high
signal levels achieved also make Raman spectra as easy to obtain
as fluorescence spectra and offer significantly lower detection
limits for many molecules.
Klarite substrates are completely compatible with existing micro-Raman
instruments. However, the SERS signals that are generated from Klarite
substrates are many orders of magnitude more intense than traditional
Raman signals and enable detection with low sensitivity detectors
and low power lasers. This will open the door to the development
of low cost Raman detection systems compatible with volume OEM applications.
