Malvern Instruments and Kaiser Optical Systems, a supplier of Raman analysers and components for spectroscopy, have announced a development collaboration that will enhance the product portfolios of both companies. In bringing the new products to market, both companies will seek the involvement of potential customers at the final stages of product development and for beta evaluations later this year.
Malvern Instruments, a supplier of systems for characterising particulate materials, will integrate Kaiser RamanRxn System analysers and probes into its Morphologi platform. The Morphologi’s high-performance automated image analysis will be able to intelligently target and guide the collection of Raman data on a range of particulate and solid materials. Used in conjunction with ISys, Malvern’s chemical imaging software, this approach has many and varied applications. The initial focus will be on pharmaceutical, life science and forensic applications.
As a direct result of this collaboration, Kaiser Optical Systems will distribute an exclusive version of Malvern’s ISys data processing and analysis software, and a new system control software platform specifically developed for its Raman Microprobe and PhAT-enabled Raman WorkStation range.
