The SERS active area is formed from unique nanostructures using silver or gold nanoparticles, lending itself the ability to detect a wide array of analytes at ultralow levels.
When an analyte comes in contact with the surface of our substrate, the Raman signal of the molecules is amplified by several orders of magnitude.
How it Works
Drop cast 5-10uL of the analyte onto the substrate
Aim the incident beam at the SERS active area and collect the spectra with the Raman spectrometer
Analyze the SERS peaks and determine the analytes present.
