Tornado Spectral Systems, Toronto, Canada
Address: 555 Richmond Street West, Suite 402, Toronto, ON, M5V 3B1, Canada
Long Business Description:

Tornado Spectral Systems designs, manufactures, and sells dispersive optical spectrometers and systems primarily for Raman spectroscopy and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Raman spectroscopy is a powerful analytical technique but Raman systems have traditionally been limited by a lack of sensitivity due to the input slit trade-off between resolution and throughput. Tornado’s proprietary high throughput virtual slit (HTVS™) design technique eliminates spectrometer slit losses while maintaining high spectral resolution, resulting in an order of magnitude improvement in sensitivity. Tornado’s HyperFlux™ HTVS-enabled spectrometers and spectroscopy systems are the perfect solutions for lab and process Raman as well as many other spectroscopy applications. With higher sensitivity than ever before possible, they provide faster measurement for dynamic reactions and transient features, more accurate chemical identification and quantitation even with challenging mixtures and low concentrations, and low laser power operation in hazardous environments. Tornado’s knowledge and expertise in dispersive spectroscopy has also been applied to SD-OCT, for which a spectrometer is a key component of the instrumentation. OCT-Prime is a small, robust, and high-performance solution ideally suited for ophthalmic imaging and other medical and industrial measurement applications. Discover how Tornado’s spectroscopy solutions can improve your quality, efficiency, and economics!

Long Business Description:

DataPhysics Instruments GmbH was founded in 1997 in Filderstadt, Southern Germany. As a medium-sized, international company we are developing, manufacturing and distributing innovative contact angle measuring devices, tensiometers humidity generators and instruments for characterising disperse material systems.
In many diverse engineering applications the ability of liquids to wet solids affects the quality of the finished products and the integrity/reproducibility of the manufacturing processes. Some important examples of this are the production and application of paints and varnishes, the development and the optimisation of composite materials, the use of adhesives and selection of solvents for engineering materials, and the biocompatibility of medical implants. Reliable analytical data is provided via the precise evaluation of static and dynamic contact angles, the surface free energy of solids and the surface and interfacial tension of liquids. Last but not least, the recent, rapid, advancements in nanotechnology and biotechnology have been possible, only, through an exact knowledge of wetting processes in the sub-microscopic level.
All over the world we are recognized as a responsive, empathetic and reliable partner for customers in a wide range of application fields of research, development and industry, always following the goal of being at the forefront of this fast developing science.
In order to create and improve solutions for surface and interfacial characterisation we work tirelessly and continuously in cooperation with many famous institutes. Due to our wide accessory range we are able to satisfy specific customer requirements and give each device an individual design.
