See Through Raman Technology selected as R&D 100 Finalist
B&W Tek, a mobile spectroscopy solutions company that delivers lab quality Raman, LIBS and NIR solutions, has been proudly selected as a 2017 R&D 100 Finalist for the i-Raman® Pro ST Portable See Through Raman Analyzer.
This is the second time B&W Tek has been recognized for such a distinguished honor following the win of the 2016 R&D 100 Awards in Analytical Equipment for our NanoLIBS®. This year’s award winners will be announced at the R&D 100 Awards Gala on Nov. 17, 2017, which will close out this year’s R&D 100 Conference held at the Walt Disney World Swan Resort in Orlando, FL.
For years now starting with the NanoRam, our Raman systems have helped to make sampling raw materials easier with their rapid, selective and nondestructive methods. This year, the i-Raman Pro ST made it as a finalist for its ability to collect Raman signals from materials inside opaque containers and packages. The see through feature minimizes the risk of exposure by keeping samples in the containers while also maintaining sample integrity. The large spot size also helps decrease the risk of photo damage to materials while increasing the sampling area to ensure proper identification. The i-Raman Pro ST is used in a variety of industries including package inspections, raw material identification, and bioscience analysis.
For more than half a century, the R&D 100 Awards have honored the most innovative companies in different industries involving science and technology. This award further validates B&W Tek as a leader in innovative spectroscopy solutions as we continue to make raw material analysis and identification easier, safer, and quicker for our customers.
