Metrohm Raman is pleased to announce its acquisition of Diagnostic anSERS inc. A subsidiary of Metrohm AG, Metrohm Raman is a key manufacturer of handheld Raman spectrometers based in Laramie, Wyoming. This acquisition expands the capabilities of our Mira Raman analyzers from instant materials identification to trace chemical analysis.
Dr. Keith Carron, CEO of Metrohm Raman: «We are very excited to have SERS capabilities at Metrohm Raman. The P-SERS platform is perfect for detection of nonvisible amounts of materials that are undetectable without SERS enhancement.»
With this acquisition, Dr. Wei Yu, co-owner of Diagnostic anSERS and inventor of innovative, inexpensive printed SERS substrates, joins the Metrohm Raman team. Dr. Yu’s substrates, combined with Metrohm Raman’s robust and reliable Raman detectors and innovative software algorithms, offer a convenient solution for field detection of trace analytes such as heroin in street samples. Metrohm Raman will begin offering SERS substrates with the release of the Mira DS in early 2018.
