MIRA P: Handheld Raman System

MIRAP is a renowned handheld Raman system for on-site raw material verification: simple, quick, versatile, and transparent.

Highlights

MIRA P is a huge improvement over conventional raw material identification and verification (RMID) methods, intended for lab-quality results in non-traditional testing scenarios such as materials inspection at the loading dock.

MIRA P rapidly and effortlessly validates the quality and consistency of materials, allowing manufacturers to save time and resources. Metrohm Raman streamlines the process, from method development to model verification and on-the-spot material sampling.

  • Clear “Pass” or “Fail” results are provided in seconds.
  • Through-package sampling attachments for liquids, solids, and powders are available.
  • MIRA Cal P is a dedicated, user-friendly software that supports full compliance for regulated industries.
  • Workflows for simple material inspection that are short, simple, and automated.
  • Orbital Raster Scan for sensitive interrogation that does not consume, damage, or burn the sample.

Benefits

Fast Results in Seconds

MIRA P gathers and processes data, performs statistical analyses, and returns a clear “Pass” or “Fail” result in seconds.

The instrument computes the result using multivariate probabilistic algorithms to confirm the identity of raw materials. This method is far more precise and dependable than conventional HQI spectral matching.

Safe Sampling of Sensitive Materials

Orbital Raster Scan (ORS) is a distinctive characteristic of all Metrohm Raman systems. ORS rasters the sampling laser over a large area to increase the information gathered with each scan. ORS achieves excellent resolution, even in heterogeneous samples, and decreases the likelihood of sample degradation or burning.

Move Sampling from the Lab to the Loading Dock

The use of handheld Raman in RMID, where many materials are tested in the receiving area, represents a significant departure from traditional methods.

Non-technical users can also benefit from automated workflows. Anyone can use this to analyze a sample quickly, safely, and accurately.

MIRA Cal P: Dedicated Software for Full Confidence in Compliance

Metrohm Raman is dedicated to providing the easiest, most effective, and most precise use of MIRA P for RMID with MIRA Cal P. The software includes features like complete reports and audit trail functions that ensure secure and well-documented procedures in accordance with FDA 21 CFR Part 11 regulations.

The new Calibrate/Verify Accessory now performs a two-part system verification. The ASTM method E1840 for Toluene-Acetonitrile is used to obtain the best wavenumber calibration possible across the entire range. Second, NIST-traceable polystyrene ensures wavenumber accuracy and compliance with USP 1120 and EP 2.2.48.

Patented ORS Technology—Superior Reproducibility When Measuring Heterogeneous Formulations

Traditional Raman spectrometers use a tightly focused laser beam to achieve high spectral resolution (Figure I). However, because of the small beam diameter and small particle size of several APIs, components in heterogeneous samples can be completely missed. For an accurate, reproducible result, several spectra must be collected at different points on the sample.

The Mira P employs ORS (Orbital Raster Scan) technology, which analyzes a larger sample area and is more likely to capture dispersed sample components (Figure II). Using ORS technology, Mira P captures APIs in heterogeneous formulations in a single analysis.
