Metrohm’s P-SERS strips are formed using an innovative patented process that deposits nanoparticles via ink-jet printing, dramatically lowering costs while maintaining uniformity and performance.
P-SERS strips can be printed on a variety of porous support materials. Chromatography paper is standard, but the support material can be customized to the application. The properties of the support material can be leveraged for chromatographic cleanup to enhance detection.
P-SERS strips support diverse methods of sample collection, including:
Narcotics Detection -Identification of trace drugs in complex mixtures
Food & Beverages -Authentication of foodstuffs including honey, olive oil, and saffron
Pesticide Detection -Detection of trace agricultural chemicals, pesticides, insecticides, and herbicides
