What if my students or I have questions about Reva?
The Reva educational
introductory material. Additionally, there are tutorial videos that will go through the process step-by-step.
Reva require changing my curriculum?
The Reva comes with a set of experiments authored by an expert in chemical education.
To seamlessly introduce the device, we have indicated which course each of the labs pertain to.
Why should my students use Reva versus other Raman equipment?
Most students don't have an opportunity to use Raman spectroscopy until graduate school. Most Raman instruments are used for research purposes due to the complexity and the cost. Reva has been specifically developed to be an educational platform completely student-friendly.
How do I know my students will be safe using Reva?
Reva is a Class 1 laser device, meaning no safety training is required. In addition, the instrument contains 3 safety interlocks and a patented ball probe. The interlocks ensure the laser cannot fire unless the instrument is closed and a user has started a measurement in the software. The ball probe ensures that the focal point of the laser is in a spot that cannot be accessed by the human eye.
Will Reva help
my students enter
Reva is a fantastic tool for students looking to enter an industry that utilizes Raman spectroscopy. The safety and simplicity of the device allows them to gain
experience using a Raman device and
understand the theory behind the procedure.
Reva's ball probe allows the laser light to go directly into the sample. This means that the results will be consistent and uniform, no matter how many times a sample is tested.
