Molecular Spectroscopy Information

Gain clarity for your material identification and verification needs

Molecular spectroscopy technologies, including UV-Visible, FTIR, Raman, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), and Near Infrared (NIR), play critical roles in various steps of the quality control and regulatory compliance processes.

NIR instruments can test pharmaceutical or food bulk materials with little or no sample preparation. In the lab, FTIR and Raman instruments provide high quality, accurate data and consistent reporting for material identification and characterization, contaminant identification, and failure analysis. The education, pharmaceutical, chemical, beverage, and basic research communities rely on UV-Vis spectrophotometers for accurate analysis. NMR provides useful chemical information for verification studies in the classroom or on the production floor.

Application note

UV-Visible Analysis of Bitterness and Total Carbohydrates in Beer

Application note

Ex Situ Raman Analysis of Lithium Ion Batteries

Reliable QC in beer production is important to ensure high quality products. Collecting high quality data and reporting it accurately every time is extremely critical to ensuring consistent production.

The needs of the Li-ion battery customers can be segmented into in situ and ex situ modes of analysis. Ex situ analysis lets researchers study battery components removed from the operating battery cell.
