Metrohm AG has acquired B&W Tek’s Spectroscopy Solution business, B&W Tek LLC, as well as several overseas subsidiaries.
NIR spectroscopy has been shown to be a cheap and effective tool that could save lives by helping health authorities target mosquitoes infected with Zika virus.
The winner of the 2018 Tomas Hirschfeld Award is Professor Christian Huck.
The final step in pharmaceutical production is often tableting. Near infrared chemical imaging can be used to monitor inconsistencies in the powder that will become the tablet, which have been introduced by mechanical processes in the tableting equipment and can lead to out of specification tablets.
Smart garments using embedded near infrared spectroscopy sensors are being developed at the University of British Columbia.
NIR hyperspectral imaging can be used to control the addition of seed treatment products to monitor dosage levels and coverage.
Observing the crucial first few femtoseconds of photochemical reactions requires tools typically not available in the femtochemistry toolkit. Such dynamics are now within reach with the instruments provided by attosecond science. In a study published in Nature Communications, researchers from Max Born Institute for Nonlinear Optics and Short Pulse Spectroscopy (MBI) characterise one of the fastest internal conversion processes in a molecule studied to date.
PANalytical has appointed Aimil Ltd as the authorised representative for ASD NIR products in India.
The WADI project is using hyperspectral, multispectral and thermographic infrared imaging to detect soil moisture and those leaks from water mains in rural areas.
The 2017 Tomas Hirschfeld Award has been made to Satoru Tsuchikawa of Nagoya University, Japan.
Given the increase in food-related health problems, the challenge set for the EU Horizon’s Food Scanner prize of €1 million was to develop an affordable and non-invasive mobile solution that enables users to measure and analyse their food intake.
On 15 March Ghent University officially launches a prestigious research project on precision agriculture, led by Abdul Mouazen.
Analytik have been appointed as exclusive distributors for the NeoSpectra range of low-cost, miniaturised, OEM FT-NIR spectral sensors.
The International Council for Near Infrared Spectroscopy (ICNIRS) are pleased to invite nominations for the 2017 Tomas Hirschfeld Award.
Diffuse optical spectroscopic imaging (DOSI) using near infrared radiation can determine fat metabolism and has the potential to help determine if a diet and exercise regime is working.
Using fNIRS to track the brain activity of both participants, when people are asked to cooperate with a partner, found that males and females had different patterns of shared brain activity.
Electro-optic modulators, which can switch light on and off within just picoseconds, are enabling ever faster telecommunication over fibre optics, and the same tools have now been harnessed for high-speed and accurate molecular sensing in the near infrared.
ChromaDex and American Laboratories have announced the release of a Fourier transform near infrared (FT-NIR) spectroscopy based identification method for the positive identification of desiccated bovine and porcine glandular tissues used in nutritional product formulations.
Panorama Synergy Limited has entered into an exclusive global licensing agreement with The University of Western Australia (UWA) for its MEMS-based optical spectroscopy sensor technology.
Rand Capital Corporation has invested $250,000 as part of a $4.3 million equity capital funding round in SciAps, Inc., manufacturer of handheld analytical instruments. The funding round was led by new investor Jolimont Global Mining Systems with participation from Rand Capital, and other existing investors including SciAps CEO and Founder Donald Sackett, as well as two additional new investors.
