Abstract:
Malvern Instruments is proud of its ‘outstanding analytical chemist'

Malvern’s Dr E Neil Lewis is this year’s ACS Anachem Award winner

UK | Posted on June 16th, 2009

Malvern Instruments' Technical Director, Dr E Neil Lewis is to be presented with the prestigious Anachem Award by the Detroit Section of the American Chemical Society (ACS) at this year's Federation of Analytical Chemistry and Spectroscopy Societies (FACSS) conference (October 18 - 22, 2009, Louisville, KY). Established in 1953, the Anachem Award is presented annually to an outstanding analytical chemist based on activities in teaching, research, administration or other activity which has advanced the art and science of the field.

Paul Walker, Managing Director of Malvern Instruments said, "We are very proud that the ACS has recognised Neil Lewis's achievements as an analytical chemist. In the 56 years since its inception only two other people from instrument companies have received the Anachem Award. Innovation in instrument development and analytical techniques is essential to the advancement of science and Neil's contributions to the field of chemical imaging have indeed been outstanding."

Dr Lewis, who was appointed to the Board of Malvern Instruments Ltd. in 2008 becoming Technical Director for the company, is recognised as one of the founders of modern near infrared chemical imaging (NIRCI) systems. Having co-authored the publication of a novel, solid state approach to chemical imaging in 1992, he has been at the forefront of system development ever since. His achievements in the field are exemplified by the outstanding performance and increasing application of Malvern's SyNIRgi system.

About Malvern Instruments
Malvern Instruments provides a range of complementary materials
characterization tools that deliver inter-related measurements reflecting
the complexities of particulates and disperse systems, nanomaterials and
macromolecules. Analytical instruments from Malvern are used in the
characterization of a wide variety of materials, from industrial bulk
powders to nanomaterials and delicate macromolecules. A broad portfolio of
innovative technologies is combined with intelligent, user-friendly
software. These systems deliver industrially relevant data enabling our
customers to make the connection between micro (such as particle size) and
macro (bulk) material properties (rheology) and chemical composition
(chemical imaging).

Particle size, particle shape, zeta potential, molecular weight, chemical
composition and rheological properties measurements are now joined by
advanced chromatography solutions (GPC/SEC), extending Malvern’s
technologies for protein molecular weight, size and aggregation
measurements, and synthetic polymer molecular weight and distribution. The
company’s laboratory, at-line, on-line and in-line solutions are proven in
sectors as diverse as cement production and pharmaceutical drug discovery.

Headquartered in Malvern, UK, Malvern Instruments has subsidiary
organizations in all major European markets, North America, China, Korea and
Japan, a joint venture in India, a global distributor network and
applications laboratories around the world.
