PickMol™ technology is based on plasmonic enhanced Raman scattering and is represented by a nano-optical chip (PickMol™ Sensing Chip), detection system (PickMol™ RAMASCOPE), measurement & evaluation software (PickMol™ sw/application) and database of pure forms of detected molecules (PickMol™ database). The patented technology is dedicated for high-sensitive screening (sub-nanomolar) of the organic and inorganic compounds in liquid samples.
PickMol™ technology is a rapid method (10 minutes from sampling to results) for qualitative detection of target molecules like: POPs/pesticides, PFAS, drug residues, chemicals, cleaning & disinfection agents etc. which are present in water reservoirs, waste water samples, technology samples, beverages & food samples and many others.
PickMol™ represents portable solution where the detection runs on disposable sensing chip which is immersed into water sample or 1 drop(4μl) of the liquid sample is applied onto chip surface. Result of PickMolTM analysis is positive or negative response for the presence of the chemical element(s), for defined threshold concentration.

RAMASCOPE is a versatile portable Raman instrument with full control of measurement parameters (laser power, acquisition time, multiple acquisitions) dedicated for operation in research laboratories and in the field, particularly for Raman detection of liquid samples (in cuvettes) and on nanostructured chips
(designed surface for sensitive and selective detection of molecules based on PERS/ SERS effect). The reproducibility of PERS/SERS detection is significantly increased by area-averaging of the Raman signal. The RAMASCOPE is equipped with data acquisition and evaluation software. External-battery-operated version is available.

Glyphosate is an amino phosphonic analog of the amino acid glycine known to be a broad spectrum (non selective) systemic herbicide that is applied directly to plant foliage It is commonly known by its original trade name Roundup TM It was introduced for weed control in agricultural production fields in 1974 and nowadays it is the world‘s most widely used herbicide.
One of the most employed plaguicides in the world for weed elimination. It acts blocking the photosynthesis process and may produce biological damage by oxidative stress in plants and animals.Highly toxic for the human health, producing a large amount of deaths in the human population.
PickMolTM is a very suitable analytical technology providing ‘on site’ quick screening of samples without the need of the sample pre-treatment. PickMolTM is able to detect ones and distinguish individual pollutants even in mixtures and at low concentrations.
