Cambridge, MA, March 25, 2019 – The Pendar XA™ system for real-time Raman quantification was announced as the Bronze winner of the Pittcon Today Excellence Award (in the sales of under $10 million category). Pendar XA is designed to assist personnel in pharmaceutical and petrochemical industries in discovery and scale-up to quickly and safely analyze a wide variety of known and unknown substances.
Pittcon Today is the official magazine of the Pittcon conference and exposition, the premier annual event for laboratory science. The Pittcon Today Excellence Award presented to Pendar was one of nine total Excellence Awards presented during Pittcon 2019. The winners were selected by an independent panel of judges looking to recognize product innovations and ingenuity.
“We have just introduced the Pendar XA and are thrilled to have its breakthrough capabilities recognized with this award,” said Dr. Daryoosh Vakhshoori, Pendar’s CEO and President. “Our potential customers have been very impressed with the product so far; having a panel of industry leaders recognize the vast potential of our system is gratifying.”
The Pendar XA is the first Raman platform that can analyze the kinetics of almost all reactions, even if the reaction has fluorescence. The system does not need a probe, which makes it possible to do real-time monitoring of very small volumes of reactants. In addition, the Pendar XA’s advanced algorithm converts complicated Raman spectra into actionable information on the chemistry and structure of both known and unknown molecules.
