Acquisition Adds Chemical Imaging to Vast Range

Jul 21 2006

Malvern Instruments has acquired the assets of Spectral Dimensions, Inc. (Olney MD, USA) a privately held company producing near infrared (NIR) chemical imaging instrumentation and software.

"Spectral Dimensions leads the field in chemical imaging technology," said Paul Walker, Managing Director of Malvern Instruments. "The company has a strong, experienced team, and has developed a suite of chemical imaging solutions. In the pharmaceutical industry these contribute to improving formulation and production processes, supporting manufacturers in achieving the goals of the FDA's PAT initiative. The pharmaceutical industry is a major customer for Malvern. Adding chemical imaging to our portfolio extends the support we can offer, especially in the challenging areas of blending and tabletting, providing synergy with our existing particle characterization systems."

Spectral Dimensions' founder and President, Dr E Neil Lewis, is a renowned expert in spectroscopy and imaging techniques. "Spectral Dimensions began operations in November 1998 responding to demands for new, powerful chemical imaging technologies," he said. "Thanks to our high calibre team, we have achieved the company's original goal to develop, manufacture, and market revolutionary products for improving the efficiency, understanding, and profitability of pharmaceutical formulation and production. Our chemical imaging solutions fit extremely well with Malvern's established product range."
