Renishaw Virsa 

Flexible, portable Raman analyser with remote sampling

The Renishaw Virsa Raman Analyser enables you to analyse samples away from the microscope and your laboratory.

  • Research–grade Raman in a transportable unit.
  • Flexible, remote sampling with fibre-optic probes (5m cabling provided; other lengths available on request)
  • Avoid fluorescence with dual laser wavelength options:
    • 532 nm and 785 nm
    • Use separately with individual probes or through the same objective lens with stacked probes
    • Switch at the click of a button – no need to reposition your sample
  • High spatial resolution probes for fast microscopy.
  • Locate and focus on your area of interest with an optional motorised, encoded three-axis probe mount and video-equipped probes.
  • Renishaw’s powerful WiRE (Windows-based Raman Environment) software for data acquisition, processing and analysis.
  • Identify elements in mixtures with Spectrum Search.
  • Combine results with images from other microscopy techniques with Renishaw’s Correlate software module – more info…

Range of Probes

The Virsa Raman Analyser is extremely flexible. A range of probes are available to suit various applications:

  • Bulk analysis probes for homogeneous samples
  • High spatial resolution probes for fine structures in heterogeneous samples
  • Video viewer (optional) to locate your region of interest easily
  • Stack two probes and share a common objective lens
  • Multiple lens turret
  • Specialist and third party probes including immersion probes for liquids, high pressure and/or temperature

Probe Positioner

Use a computer-controlled, motorised, three-axis probe positioner for precise sampling:

  • Accurate positioning and mapping with micrometre precision
  • Mount probes vertically or horizontally
  • Compatible with the video viewer and confocal probe for high spatial resolution

Custom options are also available – just get in touch and let us know what you need!
