New Partnership In Field of Simultaneous IR and Raman Spectroscopy
Product News Oct 10, 2019
Spectroscopy Corp (PSC) and Bio-Rad Laboratories have announced a partnership in which PSC will bundle Bio-Rad’s IR and Raman Library and Identification software with PSC’s instruments.
The partnership leverages the capabilities of both companies, offering customers a complementary and confirmatory dual-technique analysis that uses PSC’s Optical Photothermal IR Spectroscopy (O-PTIR) technique. The O-PTIR technique offers simultaneous sub-micron measurement of IR and Raman spectra via their mIRage+R Infrared and Raman Microscope. Used with Bio-Rad’s KnowItAll software, the combination offers simultaneous searching of IR and Raman spectral databases for compound identification, providing researchers the ability to increase their efficiency, accuracy, and overall confidence in results.
“Ultimately, the critical aspect of identifying unknowns is having confidence in your selection as the best match,” said Dr. Mustafa Kansiz, Director of Product Management. “Now, two complementary spectra, IR and Raman, collected simultaneously, can be used for that purpose with one confirming the other to give more accurate and confident identification. Hence, we describe the techniques as complementary and confirmatory. We are delighted to work with Bio-Rad in this endeavor,” he added.
