    Dear Sirs,

    I am seeking an application specific, miniature, fast and low-cost Raman spectrometer. I’m developing a chemical delivery system; however, I do not want the end-user to deviate from using the specified and proprietary chemical formulations which are supplied with the system. With a spectrometer I could examine the chemical (fluid) which has been loaded into the system and determine if it is the approved formulation. I would require only a few spectral signatures and a simple GO/NO-GO signal from the spectrometer which I would then send to a PLC.

    I’m reluctant to use a “marker” in the formulation as the specified chemical could be diluted with another chemical and still retain the marker.

    Looking forward to your response.

    With kind regards,
    JP

    This sounds like an application that may well be addressable by SpectroClick. We are not in the Raman marketplace, but doing QC screening on chemicals that feed into Raman spectrometry is something we are likely to be able to do well. We are still developing our technology so that it is reliable and robust. It is premature to work on specifics yet, but let’s stay in touch.

    Hello Spectro Click,

    How do I get my hands on one of your units? There are a number of industrial applications I would like to check out the product/application for. My current role is Director of Labs for an electronics manufacture. Online bath analysis looks like a perfect application for this type of device. Currently the cost of industrial stand alone analysis systems are several thousands each (to 10s of thousands each) which is impractical for the 100s of tanks I would like monitored and / or controlled directly. If the cost can get into the 100s of dollars there is almost unlimited potential for this device.

    Are you still looking for possible alpha testors for industrial process monitoring / process control applications?

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Best Wishes for the Success of your Enterprise!!!

    Sincerely,
    Todd

    We still aren’t quite ready for alpha testers. After announcing the AAH-200, we found some bugs that prevented it from working at a quality level we were willing to share with customers. Those problems are coming under control. If you could be more specific about your needs, we could see how well our instrument matches up. Let us see if we can help.

    Hi SpectroClick,

    I’m a biologist getting interested in spectroscopy and wanted to find out what sort of applications your technology might have. I read from a post above that you won’t be looking at Raman Spec., so just wondering what techniques will you be looking at?

    Great stuff by the way, I love the potential for citizen science!

    Best,
    Max

    We are working on visible absorbance spectroscopy first (see the AAH-200 on the Product page; we hope to be selling the AAH-200a in the foreseeable future). Reflectance and fluorescence instruments are also on the horizon.
