Cobalt Exhibiting and Presenting at Pittcon 2014

Pittcon 2014

Cobalt will be exhibiting its line of pharmaceutical analysis products at Pittcon this year.  Live demonstrations of Cobalt’s TRS100 and RapID instruments will be available at the booth.  The TRS100 is designed to replace HPLC for quicker, less resource-intensive content uniformity testing – see a working instrument quantifying the API capsules and tablets in real time. RapID allows non-invasive raw materials ID through unopened non-transparent containers, such as sacks, FIBCs, bottle and tubs.

First webinars of 2014: Transmission Raman for CU Analysis

Cobalt is pleased to announce the first of its webinar series for 2014.  Two talks are scheduled for 25th February, starting at 2pm UK time.  HPLC is the dominant technique for quantitative analysis in the pharmaceutical industry.  Replacing it would enable significant cost savings for high volume dosage manufacture.  Transmission Raman spectroscopy is a viable alternative for quantifying API in finished dosage forms: tablets up to 10mm thick, coated tablets, intact capsules, etc.
