B&W Tek, a mobile spectroscopy solutions company that delivers lab quality Raman, LIBS and NIR solutions through user-friendly mobile platforms, is proud to announce that our NanoLIBS® handheld laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy analyzer was a winner of the 2016 R&D 100 Awards in the Analytical and Test category.
The winners were announced during the R&D 100 Awards dinner, which was held on Nov. 3, 2016 in conjunction with the R&D 100 Conference at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in Washington D.C. The NanoLIBS was recognized as an exemplary accomplishment in the Analytical and Test category.
The R&D 100 Awards honor the 100 most innovative technologies and services introduced in the last year. Often nicknamed the “Oscars of Invention,” these awards recognize excellence in innovation in a variety of categories such as Analytical and Test, IT and Electrical, Process and Prototyping, Software and Services and Mechanical and Materials. The 2016 winners were selected by an independent panel of more than fifty judges including professional consultants, university faculty members and industrial researchers.
The winning product, the NanoLIBS, uses elemental analysis for the rapid identification and investigation of incoming raw material salts such as NaCl and KCl. The easy-to-use handheld tool takes only seconds to provide rapid pass/fail results for material identification against a library of salts based on elemental composition. With 21 CFR pt. 11 compliant software, the NanoLIBS allows companies to quickly implement a ready solution for raw material identification as a complementary tool to the NanoRam® handheld Raman spectrometer already in wide use among the industry for the identification and verification of APIs, excipients and intermediates.
The NanoLIBS also received the Excellence in Pharma award in the Analysis, Testing and Quality Control category of the CPhI Pharma Awards in Barcelona earlier this year.
