The premier handheld Raman system for safe in-field identification of unknown materials: compact, flexible, smart, and rugged.

Designed to provide quick information about unknown materials in critical situations, MIRA XTR gives first responders the actionable intelligence they need to formulate the best response. When law enforcement, military, and other defense and security professionals encounter illicit materials, they can get fast, onsite material ID without reaching out to a lab.

  • Large libraries available containing thousands of chemicals, including explosives, narcotics, and illicit materials
  • No-contact sampling with through-package, standoff, and remote acquisition capabilities such as integration into a remote-controlled robot
  • Wide variety of sampling attachments available for liquids, solids, and powders
  • Results within seconds
  • Easy-to-use instrument from power-up to results, no technical knowledge is required

Smart and rugged handheld Raman spectroscopy


The MIRA XTR is IPS and MILSTD certified to withstand the rigors of sampling in field conditions. This handheld spectrometer is rugged and withstands dust, water, impacts, and vibration.

In addition, automated sampling routines for non-technical users make the operation of MIRA XTR easy and smart. Smart Acquire on MIRA XTR systems automatically optimizes sampling parameters, collects and processes data, and performs library searches with one touch of a screen for fast results when they matter the most.

Analyzing mixtures


When you need information about mixtures, MIRA XTR can be used in combination with ID Kit for quick dual analysis of major and minor components.

With our ID Kit, you can identify heroin and opioids in samples in no time.

Staying safe

MIRA XTR helps to protect those who preserve public safety with specialized no-contact and standoff attachments, onboard libraries that include hazard warnings, and a mobile app for remote/delayed acquisition and instant results sharing.

To maximize safety, MIRA XTR can be integrated into a robotic platform for analyzing hazardous substances from a remote location.

Safe sampling of sensitive materials


All systems from Metrohm Raman perform sensitive interrogations using the patented Orbital Raster Scan (ORS) feature, meaning that samples are not consumed, damaged, or burned.

With ORS, the sampling laser moves over a large area to increase the amount of information collected with each scan. ORS achieves an outstanding resolution even for heterogeneous samples and reduces the risk for sample degradation or burning.
