Boulder, Colo., January 24, 2005 — Analytical Spectral Devices, Inc. (ASD), manufacturer of precision analytical instruments for real-time, field-based material identification and verification, today announced the celebration of major milestones — 1,000 instruments sold, and currently in use in over 50 countries, as well as the issuance of two additional patents during 2004 focused on pharmaceutical quality control. ASD’s rugged and reliable Vis/NIR instrumentation is currently in use in a variety of environments, for unique applications demanding fast response, laboratory-grade precision, portability, or a combination of these characteristics in applications requiring measurement of radiance, irradiance, reflectance, and/or transmission.
“ASD had two patents issue in 2004, both in pharmaceutical quality control in the areas of manufacturing and dispensing, bringing the total to four issued patents in this field thus far,” said Dr. Brian Curtiss, Chief Technology Officer and Co-founder. ”An additional patent was allowed in late 2004 and we expect it to issue in early 2005.” ASD enjoys a reputation with customers for applications expertise and world-class instrumentation, along with superior customer support before and after the sale.
