The Apex 785 Raman spectrometer is a modular, small-footprint spectrometer. It uses a unique optical design and a high-throughput virtual slit for low-light applications such as Raman spectroscopy. With a usable wavelength range of 780-1120 nm, it provides resolution <10 cm-1 at 800 nm, SNR >440:1, and a typical dynamic range of 15,000:1.Ocean Optics

Apex 785 first in the company's new Elite Series

Dunedin, FL) - Ocean Optics has introduced the Apex 785 Raman Spectrometer - the first in the Elite Series of high-performance spectrometers, light sources and accessories (www.elitespectrometers.com). Apex is a modular, small-footprint spectrometer that rivals bench-top instruments. Apex provides maximum resolution and exceptional sensitivity that combine to create superior performance.

Apex eliminates the compromise typically made to achieve either high sensitivity or maximum resolution. Using a unique optical design and high throughput virtual slit, licensed from Tornado Spectral Systems, the Apex spectrometer eliminates this tradeoff between sensitivity and resolution. The result is a powerful tool for low light applications such as Raman spectroscopy.

Apex's higher resolution enables better resolved peaks and observation of spectral features not seen previously. Its high sensitivity affords shorter integration times for faster measurements and lower excitation power to minimize sample degradation.

"Since we launched our first miniature spectrometer over 20 years ago, Ocean Optics has been the world leader in modular spectroscopy solutions," said Richard Pollard, President of Ocean Optics Inc. "The Apex spectrometer and the creation of our new Elite series demonstrate our commitment to innovation necessary to maintain leadership in the industry."

The launch of the Apex spectrometer represents the perfect partnership of sophisticated, industry-leading technical innovation and the flexible, modular and applications-based approach, pioneered by Ocean Optics. Joining technology with application support enables Ocean Optics customers to better solve problems and find answers to challenging research questions.
