The acquisition of B&W Tek LLC by Swiss Metrohm AG in July 2018 creates one of the largest solution providers for applied Raman spectroscopy. Two technology leaders in the field of Raman spectroscopy join forces, and customers all over the world will benefit: That is the key message that Metrohm and B&W Tek are addressing to the market. In addition to the well-established distribution network of B&W Tek, selected Metrohm subsidiaries have started supplying the full range of the B&W Tek product line.
The B&W Tek portfolio complements the existing Metrohm Raman Portfolio with innovative technology (e.g., patented see-through technology for measurements through opaque containers, dedicated solutions for background fluorescence reduction) and extends it to include portable Raman analyzers for laboratory and field use as well as solutions for Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS).
Customers can now choose from a portfolio of mobile Raman systems that is second to none, ranging from dedicated solutions for the identification of explosives and illegal substances to instruments for compliant QC of pharmaceuticals. The portable and handheld Raman systems provide versatile, easy-to-use solutions that can be configured to the needs of individual customers for use in virtually any industry.
In addition to cutting edge technology, Metrohm and B&W Tek customers can rely on application support and service provided through trained and certified experts from more than 80 Metrohm companies and exclusive distributors in 120 countries worldwide.
