New Substrate Offers Benefits for SERS
Ocean Optics has developed a proprietary new nanosponge substrate technology for surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS). These low-cost, high-performance substrates are ideal for detection of explosives, pesticides and many other chemicals.
Manufactured using an innovative new technique, our SERS substrates let you make fast, repeatable measurements for the identification and quantification of SERS-active analytes.Typical applications include trace level detection of explosives and narcotics and precision screening of food ingredients for controlled additives such as melamine and pesticides. SERS substrates also can be used for authentication and anti-counterfeiting applications using SERS-active taggants. Here are some key applications:
- Detection of explosives
- Detection of narcotics
- Food safety
- Anti-counterfeit tagging
- Biological research
