WITec alpha300 Riが2019 Scientists' Choice賞を受賞

WITec は、Spectroscopy分野で2019 Scientists' Choice賞を受賞したことをお知らせします。

SelectScience社は、2019 Scientists' Choice賞の受賞社/製品を、3月20日に、米ペンシルベニア州フィラデルフィアで開催された国際会議 Pittcon 2019で発表しました。

毎年発表されている Scientists' Choice賞は、業界に違いをもたらすラボ製品やメーカーを表彰するものです。SelectScience社では、2007年にScientists' Choice賞を開始しており、研究者が最高のラボ製品について意見を表明できる場となっています。WITec alpha300 Ri 倒立ラマン顕微鏡は、SelectScience.netの世界中の読者である研究者からお気に入りの製品に直接投票の結果、受賞が決定しました。


Dr. Joachim Koenen, President and managing director of WITec, expressed his joy about the award in Philadelphia and said: "We are extremely grateful that so many scientists voted for us and contributed their experience with our microscope series. That's what makes the award so special for us."

Harald Fischer, WITec Marketing Director, who accepted the award in the USA together with Koenen, added: "This award is a clear endorsement of the success of our innovation strategy and shows that our 3D Raman imaging products are effective and compelling." Fischer also thanks SelectScience: "The platform has encouraged and supported us in bringing our innovations closer to a wider range of laboratory users, and we’re delighted to see this enthusiastic response.”

WITec’s alpha300 series pioneered and continues to define fast Raman imaging. The inverted beam path of the alpha300 Ri enables Raman excitation and acquisition from below, which is ideal for rapid and repeatable investigations of cuvettes, Petri dishes and other standardized liquid sample container formats. The motorized sample stage also facilitates the mounting of environmental enclosures and other accessories. Researchers in life sciences, geoscience, pharmaceutics and a wide range of other fields can benefit from its versatility in sample handling.
