Product Applications


Hazardous Materials

CBEx is available in 785 nm to help warfighters tackle explosives and chemical warfare agents and to assist civilians to battle crime with its extensive drug, hazmat, and explosives libraries.



Incoming validation of APIs and excipients is an important aspect of quality control in the pharmaceutical industry.  SnRI’s Raman instruments provide fast, accurate results at the receiving dock or in the QC lab.



Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) is a route to trace analysis and materials research and development.  Our Raman systems are designed for demanding microscopic examination of surfaces and nanoparticles in solutions.
