12 Apr 2007

Aspectrics, Inc., the innovator of Encoded Photometric Infrared (EP-IR) analyzers announces that it has entered into an exclusive agreement with Thermo Fisher Scientific to seamlessly integrate Thermo Scientific GRAMS spectroscopy software with Aspectrics’ groundbreaking Encoded Photometric Near Infrared (EP-NIR) process analyzers.

Jim Yano, vice president of marketing for Aspectrics comments: “Our collaboration with Thermo Fisher Scientific demonstrates Aspectrics’ commitment to customer satisfaction and development within the global market. With Thermo Fisher Scientific’s rich heritage in spectroscopy software and Aspectrics’ groundbreaking EP-NIR technology, this combination will result in a complete real-time process analyzer solution that will enable our customers to achieve faster and more reliable analyses.”

Aspectrics’ EP-NIR analyzers offer a more efficient alternative to traditional NIR systems, with a spectral range extending further than the common 2100nm and achieving a range of 1375-2750nm. The patented Encoder Disk technology provides ultra fast sampling capability (100 Hz) for multi component analysis in a process rugged design to meet the demand for the process monitoring industry.

Thermo Scientific GRAMS is a spectroscopy software solution used by industry professionals worldwide for visualizing, processing and managing data from FT-IR, NIR, Raman, UV-Vis, Fluorescence, NMR and hyphenated instruments manufactured by multiple vendors.

“We are excited to be working with Aspectrics,” said David Champagne, vice president and general manager of informatics at Thermo Fisher Scientific. “Aspectrics’ innovative EP-NIR technology seamlessly integrates with GRAMS, an open standards platform from which Aspectrics’s clients can control and integrate data from multiple instruments from multiple vendors.”

Aspectrics’ EP-NIR analyzers recently received an ‘honorable mention’ in the Editors’ Award at PITTCON® 2007, the largest North American conference and exposition on laboratory science and instrumentation.
