B&W Tek, Inc Announces Preconfigured Spectrometers for Fluorescence and Raman Spectroscopy

Newark, DE, April 28, 2011

B&W Tek, Inc., an advanced instrumentation company producing optical spectroscopy and laser systems announces new preconfigured Glacier™ X Miniature Fiber Coupled Spectrometers for fluorescence and Raman spectroscopy applications.

The Glacier™ X is the smallest TE cooled spectrometer on the market and is ideal for low light level applications such as fluorescence and Raman spectroscopy. B&W Tek’s proprietary TE Cooling technology allows the signal to be integrated for sufficient time to accumulate measurable signals for detection, without being saturated with dark noise. The result is a far superior signal-to-noise ratio.

Now, B&W Tek, Inc. is excited to announce two new preconfigured models of the Glacier™ X which are in stock and ready for immediate delivery. For fluorescence, the Glacier™ X is configured with a 100 micron slit, 350nm – 1050nm wavelength range, and cylindrical lens, which provides up to a 3x boost in sensitivity. The Glacier™ X preconfigured for Raman spectroscopy is designed for use with a 785nm excitation source, has a wavelength range of 3215cm-1 from the Rayleigh line and a resolution of ~10cm-1.

“Our TE Cooled spectrometers have long been the spectrometer of choice for system integrators, due to its small size and outstanding performance,” said Dr. Mike Kayat, VP of Sales & Marketing at B&W Tek. “Now we are excited to make these modules readily available to the end user market by stocking preconfigured units for Raman and fluorescence on the shelf that are ready to ship.”
