PITTSBURGH, March 5, 2015 — ChemImage Sensor Systems (CISS) announces that Nathaniel R. Gomer, Ph.D, Senior Scientist will be presenting innovative results of the company’s work on a robotically controlled Raman system for detecting and identifying explosives at Pittcon 2015 in New Orleans.

Dr. Gomer’s lecture entitled, “Portable, Real-Time Shortwave Infrared (SWIR) Hyperspectral Imaging System for Detection of Explosives and Other Threat Materials” will be presented during the “Analysis of Bioagents and Explosives” session on Tuesday, March 10, 2015 in Room 255 of the Morial Convention Center.  His discussion will provide attendees with an overview of the project and the capabilities of the system’s technology in the detection of improvised explosive devices through the use of portable hyperspectral imaging.

“It is a great opportunity for me to present the work we have completed to the spectroscopy community during Pittcon 2015 and have the opportunity for discussion and feedback on the project,” said Gomer.

Pittcon, first held in 1950, is the world’s largest annual premier conference and exposition on laboratory science. It is organized by The Pittsburgh Conference on Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy, a Pennsylvania not-for-profit educational corporation which is comprised of the Spectroscopy Society of Pittsburgh (SSP) and the Society for Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh (SACP).
