SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 30, 2012 — The Agility from BaySpec Inc. is a transportable Raman analyzer that offers a dual-band option. It employs a volume phase grating as the spectral dispersion element, customizable to any wavelength range, and an optimally cooled scientific-grade detector array (532-/785-nm CCD or 1064-nm InGaAs) as the detection element. The analyzer provides fast and accurate field measurements for forensic, pharmaceutical and homeland security applications. Autoaligned sampling accessories include a vial holder, a pill holder, direct focus and a fiber optic probe. A simplified user interface allows users to easily verify sample identification, automate background subtraction and baseline correction, set integration times and configure user libraries. The dispersive 1064-nm excitation option produces reduced fluorescence interference and higher prediction accuracy. Proprietary Agility2020 software allows users to add new substances to the library or to interface with third-party libraries. Security is enhanced through 21 CFR Part 11 compliance.
