Horiba Scientific has introduced a new version of their ParticleFinder module for their LabSpec 6 Spectroscopy Suite, which works with all their Raman microscopes. The workflow-inspired interface has been improved, offering a step-by-step process to locate particles, generate size/shape statistics, select specific particles based on size/shape parameters and acquire their Raman spectra. Particle classification now uses the full capabilities of LabSpec 6. Univariate and multivariate analysis, as well as the KnowItAll database, allow users easily to classify each particle according to its spectral fingerprint. The chemical ID of particles is easily visualised with a colour code versus the Raman ID. Three types of Raman spectral acquisition on a targeted particle are possible. Single spectrum at the centre of the particle, average spectrum and full mapping.
