About Cobalt Light Systems
Cobalt Light Systems manufactures a range of products based on Raman spectroscopy. By using novel variants of Raman Cobalt’s instruments are able to accurately analyse materials hidden inside objects or through barriers such as coloured plastics, glass, fabric and paper. Cobalt’s products are used for liquid explosive detection at airport security, by global pharmaceutical manufacturers for quality control of raw materials and tablets & capsules, and for handheld through-barrier identification of hazardous materials in Hazmat response, EOD and law enforcement.
