U.S. optics developer acquires Russian technology
20 Aug '19
A sizable American manufacturer of optical equipment called Thorlabs, one of the global leaders in the market, has taken over U.S.-headquartered Coda Devices. The latter develops and sells optical devices based on technology that comes from a Russian innovative developer and Skolkovo Technopark resident called Inciditech, Firrma.ru reported.
Coda Devices’ Russian-originating technology is said to be able to identify up to four components and their specific concentrations in powder, liquid, gel and solid-state mixtures within 15 seconds by 3,600 reference points (legitimate medicines, outlawed substances, polymers, plastics, minerals, organic and inorganic compounds, etc.).
Analysis can be performed through any transparent material (e.g., polyethylene bags, blister packs, glass ampoules, etc.), thus enabling nondestructive content check and preventing potentially poisonous substances from permeating packages.
