CDI 1BT Bench-top Raman Spectrometer

CDI 1BT is specially built for use in laboratories. It measures the spectra of solid, liquid, gel and powder samples.

Select CDI 1BT to identify unknown substances or run an express analysis, quality control or quantitative analysis of raw materials as well as final products. Optionally, CDI 1BT can be equipped with a PC, additional spectral databases and analytical software, vials and sample holders (e.g.: test tubes, tablets, etc.).

Key Advantages

  1. Identifies up to 4 compounds
    and their relative percentage within the mixture
  2. Identification of substances that are as little as 10% from overall mixture
  3. Measurement time is less than 15 seconds
  4. Measurements through transparent packaging
    (e.g.: baggies, packages, evidence bags, blisters, glass ampoules)

CDI 1BT is based on Raman spectroscopy, optical spectroscopy method that exploits scattering of light. This method is based on a property of molecules to scatter laser light inelastically. Frequencies of inelastically scattered light bare “fingerprints” unique to compound’s molecules. Thus allowing to identify compound itself.

This exclusive to Coda Devices technology is based on coded multi-slits aperture (US Patent No. 7,301,625,7,505,130). It can significantly improve the sensitivity of a spectrometer and at the same time reduce production and final costs.

Easy to use software enables identification of unknown substances, quantitative analysis, and quality control. End-users can create measurement reports and custom spectra libraries at glance. Coda Devices offers exclusive narcotic and pharmaceutical spectral libraries. Supplementary software packages and spectral libraries from Grams Thermo and S.T. Japan are available for in-depth spectra analysis and processing.

CDI 1BT is suited for different tasks, including:

  • controlling quality of input, intermediate and final products by confirming components’ concentrations are within determined ranges (pharmaceutical and polymer industries, jewelry and attribution of work of art)
  • identifying unknown substances (forensic science, chemistry, security, biology, geology and material science)
  • defining concentrations of known compounds (R&D in a pharmaceutical, chemical and polymer industries)


  • Law enforcement and drug control services
  • Quality control in industrial production
  • R&D and education


  • Identification of up to 4 components in mixtures
  • Identification in about 15 seconds
  • High precision
