​INDATECH​ (part of Chaivin Arnoux family)     4 rue Georges Besse, 34 830 Clapiers, Fran                  sales@indatech.eu

INDATECH provides hardware and software for monitoring and controlling pharmaceutical process at full speed. ​The technology is based on NIR or Raman Hyperspectral camera is used to image a sample through optical fibers. The specra generated by these devices may be used for simple measurements, such as moisture, through more complex measurements, such as assays, uniformity, capsule fill, hardness of tablets. Samples

may be tablets, capsules, or vials, both as they are manufactured or later, in blister packs

Spectroscopic Instrumentation Design and Construction:

John Coates, Ph.D. 
                                     Coates Consulting, LLC                                                     http://www.coates-consulting.com/
With many years of custom design and building spectrometers for specific uses. Numerous compact spectroscopic instruments now on the market have been designed by John. Prototypes through product completion. John performs his consulting and prototyping in a modern 2000 sq ft laboratory in Connecticut. The lab includes a wide range of spectroscopic instruments for reference and for his spectroscopic consulting services…plus uses instruments to model applications and to prototype instrumentation concepts. His major design focus includes portable and handheld instruments.

Specialty Chemometric/Statistical Software, Statistical Design, Chemometrics:

Howard Mark, Ph.D. 
 Near Infrared Research Corporation                                       http://www.nearinfrared.com/
Over 40 years of experience in Chemometrics, statistics, software writing, and instrument design for NIR, Howard is a world-class consultant, author and lecturer. My co-presenter for the ACS and CfPA NIR Short Courses and coworker for 35 years. 
Howard was thrown chin-first into NIR shortly after Karl Norris invented the technology. Of necessity, he therefore had to develop most of the techniques we use today, to collect the data and perform the mathematical analysis that gives NIR its power, including some that never made it into the open literature. [He taught me almost everything I know about calibrating instruments.]
