New Raman Navigation Package Enhances User Experience for Easy Navigation and Sharp, Rapid Raman Imaging

HORIBA Scientific, global leader in Raman spectroscopy for over 50 years, is proud to announce the launch of their new EasyNavTM package featuring three revolutionary applications, NavMapTM, NavSharpTM and ViewSharpTM.  These three modules enable Raman users to navigate images while remaining in-focus, to easily identify the region of interest, and obtain sharp, rapid Raman chemical images for a large variety of samples.

Navigate easily through your image with NavMapTM application

NavMapTM is a new video feature that shows the global sample and the zoomed region of interest within the sample, simultaneously, in real-time. This ensures straightforward navigation and identification of the region of interest. The user never loses sight of the region of interest.

Navigate your sharp image in real-time with NavSharpTM application

NavSharpTM technology delivers sharp and real-time navigation on a sample image with any topography. The surface focus is readjusted automatically with the use of an automated Z sample stage. NavSharpTM offers sharp path imaging, and optimum focus at all times, even on rough samples.

Construct a 3D topography and acquire rapid, in-focus Raman images with ViewSharpTM application

ViewSharpTM technology constructs an image in which all surfaces are in focus simultaneously, and creates a 3D topography image. ViewSharpTM guarantees the highest focal quality in Raman images, by using the recorded topography which corresponds to the best focus of any pixel of the image. There is no longer a need to do an automatic focus point by point, making 3D chemical Raman imaging faster than ever!

Cédric Marchessoux, Software Product Manager at HORIBA Scientific comments, “The EasyNavTM package dramatically improves every aspect of Raman imaging experience, reaching a new level of innovation and speed to make this the most advanced sharp & rapid Raman imaging solution currently available. EasyNavTM , which is compatible with HORIBA’s LabRAM® HR Evolution and XploRA® Series Raman microscopes, offers a user-friendly navigation tool to deliver a powerful user experience for all Raman users.”

The new EasyNavTM package is currently available. Contact your local HORIBA Scientific office for further information, upgrade details and demonstrations.
