SAVER Project: Handheld Raman Spectrometers

Handheld Raman spectrometers are used to provide direct sampling of loose solid or liquid material or to conduct sampling on a containerized sample. These devices are rugged, field-portable units that are designed to provide responders with the ability to analyze unknown powders and liquids without destroying the sample.

Please contact NUSTL@hq.dhs.gov regarding access to the following additional documents: Focus Group Report (2012), Market Survey Report (2012), and Assessment Report on Handheld Raman Spectrometers (2012).

Find this project in the FEMA Authorized Equipment List and InterAgency Board Interactive Standardized Equipment List.
