Kaiser releases macro Raman analyzer

March 11, 2008 — Kaiser Optical Systems Inc. (Kaiser) has released the most recent member of the RamanRxnSystems suite of analyzers — the Raman WorkStation

The Raman WorkStation incorporates Kaiser’s PhAT technology into a next-generation macro Raman analyzer. PhAT technology eliminates sampling irreproducibility and focus sensitivity. The technology measures a representative sample volume, while reducing local laser power density, eliminating sample damage concerns (laser power density is below the ANSI recommended exposure limit for skin).

“The analyzer comes equipped for automated high-throughput screening with varying spots sizes available from 7 to 1mm,” says Kevin Davis, Raman WorkStation product manager at Kaiser.

Application needs and sampling versatility have been designed into the Raman WorkStation by incorporating Kaiser’s universal fiber-optic sampling station interface. This allows a basic Raman WorkStation to be expanded for in-situ reaction analysis, remote solids sampling, or micron level imaging that extend the analyzer’s capability from the mm sampling domain to the micron.

“Kaiser PhAT technology has shown significant advantages when compared to traditional approaches for pharmaceutical formulation development and production,” claims Ian Lewis, marketing manager at Kaiser. “The Raman WorkStation tends these capabilities to the tablet and gelcap area by using a transmission accessory option.” Lewis believes this accessory “may be a commercial first for the industry.”
