Quality Control Testing for Catheters

August 26, 2019

We describe how a manufacturer of antimicrobial-impregnated catheters has traded HPLC for reflectance spectroscopy to streamline its quality control processes.

Determining Color Differences

November 09, 2016

Using modular spectroscopy, we calculate the color difference -- Delta E in the L*a*b* color space -- of Pantone® color guide samples compared with a color reference.

Pesticide Detection using SERS Techniques

October 13, 2016

In this application note, we evaluate the effectiveness of surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) to measure trace levels of imidacloprid, one of a class of insecticides linked to honeybee loss.
