TSI, a global leader in precision instrumentation, today announced that it has acquired the business assets and Raman Spectroscopy Technology from Enwave Optronics, Inc. (Irvine, CA).

Enwave Optronics has developed and commercialized a complete portfolio of precision Raman instruments over its 10-year history. Enwave delivers laboratory grade measurements to its complete product line that includes handheld, portable, bench top and installed process control instruments. Enhanced spectral resolution, faster measurements and consistent instrument performance offer better counterfeit identification, polymer & plastics, gemology, mineralogy, food safety, and chemical research. The Enwave acquisition expands TSI’s ChemLogix family of chemical analysis solutions.

TSI’s President, Tom Kennedy stated, “We are excited to welcome the Enwave team to TSI and to incorporate the company’s portfolio of high precision instruments to TSI’s current chemical analysis business. Raman technology expands our chemical characterization business so that now we can address molecular-based as well as elemental-based material analysis. Both Raman and LIBS technology also support growth initiatives across several of our current core businesses.”

The purchase of the Raman spectroscopy technology from Enwave Optronics, Inc. follows the acquisition of the Laser-Induced Breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) technology for elemental analysis of solid materials from PhotonMachines, Inc. in 2012.
