Rigaku Raman Technologies Introduces Handheld Raman Analyser at CPhI Worldwide 2014

Rigaku Raman Technologies, a pioneering manufacturer of portable and handheld Raman spectrometers, announced its plans to unveil the advanced handheld Raman analyser – Progeny at CPhI Worldwide 2014, in Paris between 7th and 9th October 2014.

Rigaku will be displaying the features of the product and how it can be used in the process of identifying pharmaceutical raw materials.

Progeny, originally designed for handheld raw material identification (RMID) analysis, offers a wide range of benefits such as convenient operation, enhanced performance and accurate and precise results. The analyser was released at Pittcon in March.

Unlike traditional handheld Raman devices, Progeny is free of fluorescence interference issues, as it is equipped with an excitation laser of 1064nm wavelength. This characteristic of the device allows measurement of materials via thick, colored bottles such as polysorbate 20 and polysorbate 80.

Biopharmaceutical materials which are known to cause fluorescence interference, such as cell culture media, alginic acid, and sodium carboxy methoycellulose, can also be detected with the help of Progeny. Using Progeny, users can analyse a broad range of materials which cannot be assessed using other handheld Raman devices. With Progeny’s 21 CFR Part 11 compliant electronic signature and an integrated digital camera, it is now possible to obtain error-free results.

Progeny enables the identification of the most comprehensive range of materials in a handheld form and we hope to show visitors at the event just how much they can achieve with Progeny compared to their existing handheld devices for raw material ID.
