RAMSEY, N.J., March 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Konica Minolta Sensing Americas, Inc. (KMSA), the worldwide leader in the industrial measurement of color, light and shape, announces the launch of its next generation color measurement instrument, the CM-5 Spectrophotometer, to the pharmaceutical industry at the 2011 Interphex show March 29-31 in New York at the Jacob Javits Convention Center.
"The CM-5 is an excellent blend of both form and function for this revolutionary bench top," said Lou Carulli, Marketing Manager for Konica Minolta Sensing Americas. The CM-5 is a full featured, highly accurate and a totally standalone spectrophotometer that does not require a PC. The CM-5 can display everything from numeric data, spectral graphs, and colorimetric plots, on a large onboard color screen. The versatility of the top port design can support the measurement of solid objects, pills, granules, and pastes. It also integrates a sliding body panel to expose its large transmittance chamber capable of measuring liquids, films or plates up to 60mm thick. The sliding body panel design, with no sides, allows for the measurement of an object with no length limitation.
"What sets the CM-5 apart is that it's quite simply the easiest and virtually mistake free color measurement instrument ever developed," said Randy Klimek, New Product Project Manager for Konica Minolta Sensing. The CM-5 features yet another industry first for Konica Minolta, who developed a cutting edge on-screen wizard that instructs the user step by step on how to take a measurement, making it the ideal instrument for even non-experts. The CM-5 comes with 5 new indices preloaded on the unit including the Gardner, Iodine, Hazen (APHA), European Pharmacopoeia, and US Pharmacopeia values of liquids.
Product demonstrations will be held during the Interphex 2011 conference at Konica Minolta Sensing's booth #2271.
