Ato ID has developed and patented a proprietary SERS (Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering) technology. This new solution brings repeatable and highly sensitive SERS substrates to an affordable price level. We believe this will foster spread of SERS applications in multiple diagnostic and analytic applications.
Our solutions are used in label-free material identification and low concentration tracking. Raman spectroscopy is a versatile yet a very powerfull tool allowing for label-free diagnostics.
With Raman you are able to get very specific fingerprints of molecules based on their vibrational energy. The key drawback of traditional Raman is a very weak signal, which is scattered from molecules in an analyte.
SERS is a way of enhancing Raman scattering by millions of times, thus reducing requirments for the equipment used to capture Raman spectrum of an analyte.
