Newark, DE – May 10, 2018
B&W Tek, a global leader in mobile spectroscopic solutions, is proud to announce that its STRaman™ see-through portable Raman technology was honored as the Silver Honoree in the annual Laser Focus World Innovators Awards Program.
B&W Tek’s portable STRam, powered by STRaman technology, has the ability to collect Raman spectra through a variety of barrier layers and visually-opaque packaging for material identification, overcoming challenges previously faced by traditional Raman spectroscopy. The patent-pending STRaman see-through technology consists of a high throughput spectrometer, a specialized probe, and advanced algorithms developed by B&W Tek experts.
STRaman technology is proven to have marked improvement over previous methods of material identification for its ability to quickly and noninvasively collect Raman signal of materials inside visually-opaque containers such as white plastic bottles, paper envelopes, and tablet coatings. This eliminates the need to open packaging to identify substances, minimizing the risk of exposure and compromising sample integrity.
“The STRaman technology greatly expands the applicability of Raman by overcoming one of its basic challenges” says Dr. Katherine Bakeev, Director of Market and Customer Development. “In addition to being able to see through opaque packaging for rapid material identification, the larger sampling area and depth enhance Raman measurements with more representative sampling beyond the surface biomedical applications and for heterogeneous samples.”
The 2018 Laser Focus World Innovators Awards Program recognizes the most innovative solutions in the industry determined by a judging panel consisting of expert professionals. Judging is based on a list of criteria which include innovation, value to the user, and impact in the photonics and optoelectronics industry.
B&W Tek is committed to constant innovation and is honored to be once again recognized for successfully delivering total solutions. The STRaman technology has also been recognized with the Pittcon Excellence Award in March and commended with The Analytical Scientist Innovation Award 2017.
