Metrohm has introduced the Misa: a handheld Raman instrument to detect and identify trace level food contamination in complex food samples in the field. Misa uses Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) for trace detection of contaminant molecules. A mobile app provides intuitive, guided workflows with immediately available results and automated analysis quickly and accurately identifies trace contaminants. The instrument comes with dedicated applications which eliminate sample analysis method development. Further, the mobile platform enables remote sharing of results, location and hazard alerts.
