Cobalt Light Systems Exhibiting and Presenting at Pittcon 2015

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. Also, at the show there will be two 15-20 minute talks on the technologies: Qu...


Cobalt System in First Human Bone Disease Trial, Plus Historical Bone Disease Studies

Cobalt Light Systems’ Raman Instrument used in non-invasive scanning of patients looking for chronic and debilitating diseases such as osteogenesis imperfecta (brittle bone disease) and osteoporosis in new research study. Researchers from University College London (UCL), the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) and the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH) used a technique known as Spatially Offset Raman Spectroscopy (SORS), which enables substances to be analysed and identified through barriers, including biological tissues. In trials, the SORS instrument, based o...


Transmission Raman Method Gains Regulatory Approval for Content Uniformity Batch Release Test

Cobalt Light Systems is pleased to announce that a major pharmaceutical company has gained regulatory approval to release products using Cobalt’s TRS100 instrument instead of by HPLC. This is a landmark achievement in reducing the industry’s dependence on the expensive and time-consuming “workhorse” technique of High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC). The content uniformity (CU) test assesses whether all of the tablets in a manufactured batch contain the right amount of active ingredient, so is a crucial regulated test for determining product safety. HPLC ...
