The release of the UV/VIS SPELEC equipment meant a step further for DropSens in many senses. We managed to offer a unique compact solution with a full dedicated spectroelectrochemistry software incorporating very powerful data treatment capabilities, for those interested in performing spectroelectrochemistry measurements at a very convenient price.
After the good response with this innovative equipment in the market, we found out that many researchers were in the need of a similar solution but joining Raman Spectroscopy and Electrochemistry. And there is where the story begins.
SPELEC RAMAN is a unique equipment that combines a LASER (785 nm), a Bipotentiostat/Galvanostat and a Spectrometer (wavelength range 785 – 1010 nm and Raman shift 0 – 2850 cm-1). These components offer fully synchronized measurements controlled by the powerful DropView SPELEC Software which offers features such as Real Time Panel, Spectroscopic measurements in Counts or Counts minus Dark, 3D plotting of curves or Spectrum Film among others.
Raman spectroscopy allows knowing, in effortless way, information about the structure of materials. The combination of electrochemical methods with RAMAN analysis provides information about the reaction and products generated electrochemically in-situ. SPELEC RAMAN is a perfect tool for quantitative and qualitative analysis, and can be used with conventional spectroelectrochemical Raman setups or with our dedicated accessories for working with SPEs.

Surface-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) is a surface-sensitive technique that enhances Raman scattering by molecules adsorbed on rough metal surfaces. The enhancement factor is so powerful that the technique may detect single molecules. Screen Printed Electrodes (SPEs) of various materials such as Silver, Gold, Nanomodified surfaces, Copper… have shown outstanding properties for SERS, making the technique more sensitive and cost effective in comparison with other SERS substrates.
In order to take advantage of the described SERS effect with SPEs, some new products have been added to our catalogue:
