Serstech 100 Indicator - Raman Spectrometer for chemical analysis
The Serstech 100 Indicator can identify solid and liquid chemical substances in seconds.
The handheld device is a robust system, using libraries to analyse and identify explosives, narcotics, hazardous substances, chemical warfare agents and pharmaceuticals.
The system uses Raman Technology, allowing the user to analyse chemicals through clear, translucent and amber glass and plastics, minimising the operator’s exposure to the substances under analysis. The Serstech 100 Indicator requires no consumables and no factory calibration, with no associated maintenance costs.
Ideal for use by First Responders, the Serstech 100 Indicator is simple to use, compact, ruggedised and lightweight, ideal for use in white powder and unknown chemical incidents.
Serstech 100 Indicator Raman Spectrometer key features:
- Handheld and portable in the field.
- Easy to understand indicator display.
- Multiple scanning methods. Screen a sample for the presence of a restricted substance. Identify all the unknown substances in a sample or verify to search for a match to one specific substance.
- Measure through vials, transparent and translucent glass or plastic bottles, containers or bags. No sample preparation needed.
- Insensitive to water
- IP67 rated, MIL-STD-810G vibration and drop tested
- Constantly keep up with new chemical substances and create your own libraries from your own measurements using ChemDash.
- Manage your devices, measurements, spectra and reports, across your organisation with ChemDash.
- Add one or several databases according to your needs:
- Explosives – Includes military and civilian explosives, IEDs, precursors and oxidants.
- Narcotics – Narcotic and psychotropic substances from the UN Yellow and Green lists, including precursors.
- Hazardous Chemicals – Contains more than 2000 TICs (Toxic Industrial Chemicals) and other toxic or hazardous materials.
- Chemical Warfare Agents – Includes blister, blood, nerve and choking agents, and their precursors.
- Pharmaceuticals – Tailormade library developed for and together with pharmaceutical companies.
Serstech 100 Indicator Raman Spectrometer applications:

Serstech 100 Indicator - SERS Kit
Low concentration drug samples are typically difficult to analyse by Raman Spectroscopy, especially those containing heroin and fentanyl. With Serstech’s SERS Kit for the 100 Indicator, difficult samples are no longer a problem. Used together with the 100 Indicator, the SERS kit allows fast identification of dark coloured samples and mixtures containing low concentrations of drugs. The device is capable of detecting ppm levels of “street quality” samples, including heroin and fentanyl. Signals from the substance of interest are amplified, whilst interfering fluorescence is reduced.
Based on patent pending technology, the SERS kit utilizes disposable SERS surfaces. The disposable surfaces are available in packs of 20 or 100 pieces, together with sample preparation bottles pre-filled with the required solvent.
