CEM Corporation announced that the Investigator(TM) System, an integrated microwave synthesis system and Raman spectrometer, has won the 2005 R&D 100 Award, becoming the tenth CEM
instrument to do so. The award is presented on a yearly basis by the editors of R&D Magazine in recognition of the most "technologically significant new products and processes of the year." CEM has won the award 7 out of the last 10 years.
The Investigator System is also the third consecutive system from CEM's Life Science Division to win the award. "This award is a testament to the strong pipeline of products coming out of CEM's R&D program," said Michael J. Collins, President & CEO of CEM Corporation. "The new systems continue to expand the previous boundaries of microwave technology with novel applications being explored in different areas of the life sciences, helping to further the potential of microwave-enhanced chemistry."
CEM combined the proven capabilities of the Discover® microwave synthesis platform with Raman spectrometry to create Investigator, the first integrated approach to in situ analysis of reactions. The microwave synthesis system provides faster, cleaner chemistries and significantly better yields than conventional synthesis, while the Raman spectrometer offers detailed information about the reaction mixture and the progress of the chemistry in real-time. The Investigator is the only benchtop laboratory system that provides in situ monitoring of microwave-assisted organic reactions, giving chemists a tool that allows them to quickly optimize their reactions in real-time and increase their productivity without having to interrupt the synthetic process.
