The performance of any Raman instrument, is not only a function of the spectrometer, laser and detector. But also the interface between the samples and the instrument. Commonly this is achieved via a Raman Collection Probe. These probes can be the critical factor in determining the final observed performance of the system. ISI presents a technical note, discussing a variety of probe options for different observational tasks. This includes a new stand off Raman probe optimised for making observation at distances up to 1.5 m. Further the system is shown to agree excellently with theoretical predications. The importance of a fully integrated solution for a given measurement task is examined.
