Ventana’s optical design and components maximize throughput for superior sensitivity

Ocean Optics (Dunedin, FL) has expanded its Elite Series of high-performance modular spectrometers with the introduction of the Ventana line of high throughput spectrometers. Ventana spectrometers combine an optical bench configuration with very high collection efficiency and a high-efficiency volume phase holographic (VPH) grating to provide unprecedented throughput and sensitivity for low light level applications. Three preconfigured Ventana spectrometers are available: 532 nm and 785 nm excitation wavelength Raman models, and a visible to near-IR model for general purpose fluorescence applications.

With its high sensitivity performance and compact size, Ventana is ideal for academic and corporate research, OEMs and system integrators seeking a cost-effective alternative to traditional integrated systems. It is well suited for applications in life sciences, pharmaceuticals, materials analysis and more. Features include:

  • A spectral range of 250-2000 cm-1.
  • A resolution of 10 cm-1; the 532 nm version covers 35-4300 cm-1 with 20 cm-1 resolution.
  • Configured for fluorescence measurements from 430-1100 nm with a resolution of 4.0 nm (FWHM).
  • Integrated laser with free space collection optics for the highest throughput possible.
