Detect organic contamination in water faster, cheaper and on the spot

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.

PickMol™ RAMASCOPE – Scientific device

RAMASCOPE – Scientific is a versatile portable Raman instrument with full control of measurement parameters (laser power, acquisition time, multiple acquisitions) dedicated for operation in research laboratories, particularly for Raman detection of liquid samples (in cuvettes) and on nanostructured chips (designed surfaced 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 -Scientific is equipped with data and evaluation software.

Features

  • Built-in laser and spectrograph controlled by an external computer
  • Universal sample holder for cuvettes and SERS substrates
  • High signal reproducibility reached by area-averaging of the SERS signal
  • Software: data acquisition, signal processing, data analysis and storage

Specifications

  • Excitation wavelength: 785 nm
  • Laser power: mW
  • Spectral resolution: 8 cm-1
  • Spectral range: 250 – 2200 cm-1
  • SERS averaging area: 0.3 x 0.3 mm
  • Dimensions: 250 x 180 x 80 mm

Options

  • Battery-powered operation
  • Tailored SERS chips (see options)
  • Tailored data processing software based on the Convolutional Neural Networks
