Specac launches innovative Pearl liquid analysis accessory

Tuesday 10th November 2015, at the Royal Society of Chemistry, Piccadilly, London, saw the launch of Specac's ground breaking new Pearl™ liquid analysis accessory.


The Pearl is the latest high quality, high specification infrared spectroscopy product from the Specac design team, reflecting great, British engineering.










Following the introduction of Quest ATR, the leading product of its type on the market, the Specac Pearl™ will revolutionise the way liquid transmission analysis is carried out in the laboratory.

The Specac Pearl™ offers greater degrees of accuracy and repeatability in calculating pathlength, the elimination of troublesome fringing and the ability to analyze highly viscous substances such as in-service oils and greases that a traditional liquids analyzer cannot. The most advantageous features are ease and speed of use and cleaning, therefore saving the customer time and money.

The launch was attended by a range of interested parties, from instrument manufacturers, industry marketeers and academics to end users from pharmaceutical, diagnostics and other fields.

Speakers at the event, were David Smith, Managing Director of Specac, Arif Butt, CEO of Select Science, and Tim Collins, Director – Laboratory Technology Sector, Gambica. Other notable attendees were Professor Sergei Kazarian from Imperial College London, and Dr Andrew Chan from King’s College London.

The Specac Pearl™ was demonstrated at the event in a range of the most popular IR instruments on the market.
