MarqMetrix® Hellma Partner to Bring Raman Spectroscopy to the Classroom
News Sep 09, 2016
MarqMetrix and Hellma will demonstrate their new Raman spectroscopy technology and curriculum designed specifically for the classroom during the SCIX2016 conference held September 18th-23rd in Minneapolis, Minn.
Historically, instruction surrounding Raman spectroscopy required large and expensive pieces of equipment. Not something that every university would have available in the chemistry lab. In the last few years, MarqMetrix® has developed the TouchRamanTM BallProbe®, a sample interface that simplifies the collection of Raman spectroscopy data. The technology is widely used across multiple industries and now, in partnership with Hellma, the technology and a curriculum will be available to colleges, universities and students who want to further their knowledge of Raman spectroscopy.
Hellma and MarqMetrix® have worked together to integrate the easy-to-use BallProbe® into a compact, affordable Raman solution that makes it accessible in the scientific learning environment. The rugged form factor has been designed specifically for educational application.
“Regularly, I am contacted by employers seeking graduates with Raman spectroscopy knowledge,” said Brian Marquardt, CEO and Founder of MarqMetrix®. “This led us to the partnership with Hellma as we both share a passion to make sure the future leaders in the industry have the best tools and technologies while studying their field.”
“We understand the value of the Raman technology for the future of the industry and in partnership with MarqMetrix, we are dedicated to providing accessible products and affordable solutions for educators and students alike,” said Evan Friedman, Director of Sales Americas, Hellma USA. “We are proud to be leaders in developing future scientists.”
