Each year, the Pittcon Product Review presents many unique challenges. As the largest editorial project of the year, many hours go into ensuring that the review is as comprehensive as possible and that no stone is left unturned. Unfortunately, however, it does occasionally happen that a new product is missed, listed incorrectly, or otherwise presented erroneously. The products and companies listed here fall into one or more of these categories and it is our hope that this Addendum will present readers with a more complete picture of the spectroscopic products available at Pittcon 2010.
