B&W Tek is thrilled to be receiving a Reader’s Choice Award for the second year in a row. They will accept the award during this year’s Pittcon Conference and Expo being held in Orlando, Florida at the Orange County Convention Center where B&W Tek will be exhibiting at Booth #3780.

This year’s award winner, the NanoRam™ is a new class of small, handheld instruments for materials identification and verification within cGMP compliant facilities. It is a state-of-the-art compact Raman spectrometer and integrated computing system, based on an open systems architecture design that can support a broad range of applications in multiple industries.

Designed for use by non-specialists, the NanoRam is easy to use and operates single-handedly. It is the only handheld Raman spectrometer to feature both a TE cooled spectrometer and a stabilized laser source and is unique for its Wi-Fi capabilities.

Last year’s Reader’s Choice Award winner, the i-Raman™ is a high resolution Raman spectrometer unique for its high resolution combined with field-portability. With performance comparable to large bench-top Raman systems and weighing less than 10 lbs, it’s a portable laboratory instrument available at a fraction of the cost to many large footprint Raman instruments on the market today.
