Raman Enhanced with SERS: How Low Can You Go? Identifying Fentanyl and Other Substances in Low Concentrations

Mon, Jun 21, 2021 · 2:00 PM · Eastern Time (US & Canada)
About This Webinar

OVERVIEW
How low can you go? Or more significantly, how low of a concentration will your Raman analyzer detect and identify target chemicals including Fentanyl and Fentanyl analogs? Enhance operator safety and success analyzing lower concentration chemical threats with Raman analyzers. This webinar presents the advantages of using easy Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) techniques to both defeat common Raman interferences and enable lower dose identification. Participants will observe the manipulation of surrogate chemical samples to identify select target chemicals. Presenter displays tips, techniques and “secrets” using handheld Raman analyzers with and without SERS analyzing surrogate samples.

TAKEAWAYS
- Learn about Gemini handheld Raman & FTIR analyzer
- Learn about Gemini LowDoseID which uses Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS)
- Enhance operator safety and success analyzing lower concentration chemical threats including Fentanyl and Fentanyl analogs.
