In addition to introducing Lead Raman Scientist Dan Hudgins, Ph.D., Anton Paar also presents the Cora 100: the fast and compact Raman spectrometer perfectly-suited for on-the-spot identification of explosives, narcotics, hazardous materials, and incoming goods.

ASHLAND, Va., Feb. 26, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Anton Paar, the premier manufacturer of laboratory instruments and

process measurement systems, is pleased to announce its place as a major player in Raman spectroscopy with the hiring of a new Lead Raman Scientist, Dan Hudgins, Ph.D., and the release of a ground-breaking handheld Raman spectrometer, the Cora 100. The latest addition to the company's growing list of spectroscopy offerings.

Dr. Hudgins joins Anton Paar as an experienced research Chemist with significant experience in defense, renewable energy, and private industry. He brings highly-advanced scientific experience and practical commercial knowledge to Anton Paar's Raman spectroscopy product line at a time when the company is making a major push into the Raman market.

Anton Paar was a natural fit, says Hudgins: "Anton Paar's commitment to customer service was what drew me here. This philosophy, coupled with their groundbreaking, application-based Raman instrumentation and elite application and technical support, makes this an exciting opportunity to solve customer pain points and drive their operations forward."

The Cora 100 handheld Raman spectrometer places laboratory quality data acquisition and interpretation in the palm of your hand, providing rapid and dependable identification of controlled and hazardous substances in loading docks, ports of entry, research laboratories, and in the field. The Cora 100 is already being used effectively to identify substances associated with drug trafficking, hazardous materials response and mitigation, and explosives identification.

The Cora 100's small footprint (6.3 in x 3.9 in x 1.2 in), light weight (1.5 pounds), and rugged construction make it ideal for single-handed operation and real-time identification of substances. Designed to be compatible with all major decontamination techniques , the Cora 100 excels in the harshest conditions and is certified as MIL-STD 810G impact and vibration resistant and IP67 water resistant. Spectral libraries for narcotics, hazardous materials, explosives, and chemical warfare agents are available to ensure that the Cora 100 meets specific needs for security screening at public events, schools, airports, and prisons, by police and fire departments, customs officials, and military operators, both domestic and abroad.

For a limited time, Anton Paar is even offering a free Cora 100 trial.

Dr. Hudgins, the Cora 100, and other Anton Paar Cora Raman spectrometers will all be present at Pittcon 2019, taking place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, from March 19-21. Attendees are encouraged to visit booth 1555 for an up-close look at the Cora 100.
