HORIBA Scientific is proud to organize and sponsor RamanFest 2020.  HORIBA Scientific provides an extensive array of instruments and solutions for applications across a broad range of scientific R&D and QC applications. Our proven quality and trusted performance can be found in over 500 types of scientific analyzers for Raman spectroscopy, fluorescence spectroscopy, X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy, elemental analysis, GDOES, ICP-OES, particle characterization, forensics, spectroscopic ellipsometry, sulfur-in-oil, surface plasmon resonance imaging (SPRi), water quality measurements, custom spectroscopy solutions and OEM spectroscopy components.

Our instruments are found in universities, industries, research institutions, and government agencies. HORIBA provides multi-faceted data solutions in some of the most advanced science and technologies, in what are niche markets – assisting the most cutting-edge research in uncharted territories, and fuelling applications in life sciences, pharmaceutical, materials research, food and agriculture, environmental, energy, water...

In 2019 HORIBA celebrated the 200th anniversary of its optical spectroscopy roots, which makes its sponsorship of RamanFest 2020 particularly special. The Maison Soleil was founded in 1819 by Jean-Baptiste Soleil, becoming in 1923 the company Jobin Yvon through association with Amédée Jobin and Gustave Yvon. The technical foundation given by the Maison Soleil and the subsequent Jobin Yvon company remains at the heart of HORIBA’s spectroscopy products, which are renowned for their performance and quality.

Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. specializes in spectroscopy software and libraries for Raman, Infrared (IR, FT-IR, ATR), NMR, Mass Spec (MS), UV-Vis.


KnowItAll® Raman Identification Pro - Raman spectroscopy is a powerful tool for identifying unknown compounds. That identification, however, depends not only on a comprehensive database of reference Raman spectra but also on advanced software technology to allow the unknown Raman spectrum to be matched to reference Raman spectra. Bio-Rad has both. The KnowItAll Raman Identification Pro package combines the award-winning KnowItAll software with the world's largest Raman spectral database to provide the most advanced technology available for fast, accurate spectrum identification.


Find out more about Bio-Rad’s patented technology for Raman spectral identification! Learn more about KnowItAll’s patented optimized corrections technology and how it has transformed the identification of Raman spectra. This solution—not available in other software—automatically applies multiple corrections to compensate for flaws in the spectra caused by variability in instruments, accessories, environmental conditions, fluorescence, etc. See how it can solve issues that cannot be adequately addressed by traditional algorithms and manual methods.

CytoViva provides hyperspectral imaging solutions from the visible to near infrared range, which are specifically designed to work with all modalities of optical microscopy. This includes CytoViva’s patented enhanced darkfield microscopy optics, fluorescence and standard brightfield microscopy.

Hyperspectral (HSI) Microscopy
Hyperspectral microscopy is unique in its ability to capture optical spectral data in every pixel of the microscopic sample image. It enables comparative spectral review, spectral mapping and other analysis of different elements within a sample. These sample materials can include fluorescent, plasmonic or other light scattering materials as well as live cell and tissue samples.

Enhanced Darkfield (EDF) Imaging
CytoViva’s enhanced darkfield optics are unmatched in their ability to enable optical imaging of nanomaterials as small as 10nm. These enhanced darkfield optics were specifically designed to provide nanotechnology scientists with an easy and effective way to observe nanoparticles in biological or materials-based environments. Most importantly, these patented enhanced darkfield optics are key to creating high signal-to-noise hyperspectral images and analysis of nanoscale sample elements.

CytoViva + XploRA Raman
CytoViva provides optical hyperspectral imaging with HORIBA Scientific’s XploRA Raman Microscope system. These technologies are integrated on a single microscope platform, enabling unmatched sample analysis with both optical spectroscopy and chemical spectral confirmation down to the nanoscale.
