Customisable handheld Raman analyser

Rigaku Raman Technologies will showcase its new generation handheld Raman analyser for raw material identification (RMID) at CPhI Worldwide 2014 (7-9th October 2014, Paris Nord Villepinte, France). 

Progeny eliminates issues of fluorescence interference

Unlike other handheld Raman devices, the company says Progeny eliminates issues of fluorescence interference with the use of a 1064nm excitation laser. This feature enables users of handheld Raman to measure materials through thick, coloured bottles, such as polysorbate 20 and polysorbate 80.

Other materials that are known to cause fluorescence interference, such as sodium carboxy methoycellulose, alginic acid, and cell culture media typically used in biopharmaceuticals, are now detectable with Progeny. This capability means that users can broaden their analysis range and determine materials that other handheld Raman devices are unable to.

Error free data entry tracking is also now achievable with Progeny’s integrated digital camera and a 21 CFR Part 11 compliant electronic signature.
