B&W Tek Honored by 2018 Laser Focus World Innovators Award Program

The Laser Focus World Innovators Awards Program has recognized B&W Tek with the Silver Honoree award for its STRaman™ see-through Raman technology.

STRaman has the ability to collect Raman spectra for material identification through a variety of barrier layers and visually-opaque packaging such as colored plastic bottles, multi-layered paper packaging, and thick tablet coatings. This revolutionary technology overcomes challenges previously faced by traditional Raman spectroscopy as it eliminates the need to open packaging, minimizing the risk of exposure and compromising sample integrity.

“The STRaman technology greatly expands the applicability of Raman by overcoming one of its basic challenges” says Dr. Katherine Bakeev, Director of Market and Customer Development. “In addition to being able to see through opaque packaging for rapid material identification, the larger sampling area and depth enhance Raman measurements with more representative sampling beyond the surface, a benefit for biomedical applications and for heterogeneous samples.”

The 2018 Laser Focus World Innovators Awards Program recognizes the most innovative solutions in the industry determined by a judging panel consisting of expert professionals. Judging is based on a list of criteria which include innovation, value to the user, and impact in the photonics and optoelectronics industry.

B&W Tek is committed to constant innovation and is honored to be once again recognized for successfully delivering total solutions. The STRaman technology has also been recognized with the Pittcon Excellence Award in March and commended with The Analytical Scientist Innovation Award 2017.
