Cobalt’s Resolve™, a ground-breaking new handheld system that identifies hazardous materials through sealed opaque containers, is available for demonstration at a series of key international events in October and November.

Resolve uses Cobalt’s proprietary spatially offset Raman spectroscopy (SORS) technology to detect and identify chemicals through opaque barriers such as coloured and non-transparent plastics, dark glass, paper, card, sacks and fabric. Measured spectra are accurately matched to comprehensive on-board spectral libraries and the system identifies materials including; explosives and precursors, hazardous and toxic materials, chemical agents, narcotics and new psychoactive substances, plus thousands of benign chemicals.

Resolve was named as one of the top new products at Pittcon 2016 by Instrument Business Outlook and is a finalist in the 2016 R&D 100 Awards. The winners are announced by R&D Magazine in November.
