ChemImage Sensor Systems to introduce Portable Raman Analyzer with Dual Excitation Wavelength Capability

May 6, 2014

PITTSBURGH, PA — ChemImage Sensor Systems (CISS) announces that it will be introducing the Agility™ Dual Band Portable Raman Analyzer at the SPIE Defense, Security and Sensing (DSS) meeting in Baltimore, MD

This instrument, developed in partnership with BaySpec, Inc. is the first Raman analyzer to allow the operator to select an excitation wavelength that is appropriate for the sample matrix being analyzed. In particular, effects of sample fluorescence and luminescence can be minimized by using excitation at 1,064 nm when necessary, yet sensitivity and sample throughput can be maximized by excitation at either 532 nm or 785 nm. All of this is available in an instrument that is equally at home in a fixed, mobile or field laboratory.

“Addition of the Agility™ portable Raman Analyzer to the CISS portfolio provides a complement to our existing standoff sensor systems for the detection of explosives and illicit drugs” said Dr. Matthew P. Nelson, Chief Scientist and CISS Business Director. “We are looking forward to discussions with the user community at the DSS meeting on how the Agility™ can meet their needs for a portable point threat detection system.”

“Working with CISS to bring the capabilities of the Agility™ family of instruments to the defense, security and forensic detection markets is a partnership that is bringing dividends to both of our organizations” commented William Yang, President and CEO of BaySpec, Inc. “We look forward to providing instrument systems that provide real tools for law enforcement, checkpoint screening and forensic examination”.

SPIE DSS is the industry’s most important scientific conference and exhibition on optics, infrared imaging, lasers, and sensing for defense, security, industry, healthcare, and the environment.
