Monitor your blending using the Wireless MicroNIR from Viavi

Using the small form factor MicroNIR from Viavi allows you the ability to monitor a blend on a moving system. The PAT-WIFI is a fully integrated wireless system with built-in motion sensor allowing the automated and optimised collection of spectra during the rotation of a mixing vessel. Scimed have been working closely with Matcon Ltd to develop methods and demonstrate the capabilities of blend endpoint monitoring using the Matcon IBC Tumble Blender at their Centre of Excellence Test Facility in Evesham (UK).

Seminar on techniques used in the waste, environmental and recycling industries

SciMed are pleased to announce the next event in their series of industry focused seminars. On Wednesday
25th May 2016 we will hold a technical seminar on the analysis techniques used in the waste, environmental
and recycling industries. The series of talks will focus on the different solutions that SciMed have to offer. To
keep the content as informative as possible the focus will be on the techniques and what they can do for you
rather than on the instruments themselves.

10:00 Start

Program will include:

  • XRF for rapid waste analysis no matter the sample matrix
  • Sensitivity, selectivity & simplicity. Getting the most from your samples with AA & ICP.
  • Automated solutions for TOC
  •  Applications of bomb calorimetry and thermal analysis to the waste industry
  • CO2 Capture and Sequestration Measurement using Thermal/Calorimetric Methods
  • Using portable NIR and Raman methods as material screening tools for selective waste sorting and recycling.
  • Using portable LIBS as an alternative sorting tool  for metal scrap-waste
  • CO2 Capture and Sequestration Measurement using Thermal/Calorimetric Methods
  •  Supercritical Water wet oxidation for waste destruction.
  • Ultrasonics to help with anaerobic digestion.

SETARAM Thermal Thermal Analysis and Calorimter range joins the SciMed portfolio

Scientific and Medical Products are proud to announce the integration of the SETARAM Product Range into its Thermal Analysis and Calorimeter range of products.

 

This exciting range of products will complement the existing range already on offer at SciMed, and will allow many of our customers to find solutions to all their needs with one supplier. Dedicated Product Specialists will be training to offer competent advice and support across the range.

For more information, please browse our Product Pages or feel free to contact us with any questions,

Analysco has merged with SciMed XRF

As of September 1st 2015, Analysco has merged its business with SciMed.

Bringing SciMed and Analysco together creates a strong and unique supplier for the XRF marketplace.  Analysco were a leading XRF consumables supplier up to this point. SciMed have been a supplier of XRF spectrometers since the early 1990s.

Chris Jackson and Malcolm Haigh will join SciMed, together with whom we will have a combined experience of over 150 years in XRF analysis and instrumentation.

This merger will also incorporate the Spectro Scientific range of Oil Condition Monitoring solutions, which will be a great addition to the SciMed product range. This will complement our existing range of AA, ICP and, TOC analysers, oxygen bomb calorimeters and NIR spectrometers, which are already used in oil condition monitoring laboratories.

With the other products that Analysco currently represent, SciMed will be taking over the UK and Ireland responsibility for New ERA NMR tubes and consumables.

Malcolm Haigh ( Malcolm.haigh@scimed.co.uk) and Chris Jackson (chris.jackson@scimed.co.uk) will remain as the product specialists for all of the products formally managed by Analysco and some of the SciMed staff will also contribute to the product support.  Paul Vanden Branden ( XRF Product Manager at SciMed) will lead this group overall.

To learn more about SciMed, in October we are holding our annual Open Days where we present technical presentations on a wide variety of our techniques.  This allows our customers to get a better understanding of all of the techniques and processes that we are involved in.  This year we are having a third day where we are focusing on the new PlasmaQuant MS ICP from Analytik Jena.  More details can be found in the attached information sheet.

We hope that all of Analyso’s customers see this as a positive move and we at SciMed look forward to welcoming Chris and Malcolm as colleagues in September and look forward to working with their customers in the coming months and years.
