NEWARK, Del., May 20, 2012 — B&W Tek Inc. was awarded US Patent No. 8,135,249 for the design of a spectroscopic probe that mounts directly to a standard microscope, it said.
The fiber optic probe is mounted right above the objective lens of a microscope to add spectroscopic function with minimal alteration to the optical path. The probe and microscope can perform Raman and fluorescence analysis as well as microsampling using different easily reconfigurable excitation wavelengths.
This is the company’s 18th patent since its establishment in 1997.
B&W Tek produces optical spectroscopy, laser instrumentation and portable/lab-grade Raman systems.
