NanoRam Handheld Raman Spectrometer

The NanoRam is a state-of-the-art handheld Raman instrument for nondestructive identification and verification of materials such as APIs, excipients, intermediates, & finished products. Compact and agile, the NanoRam can be used by non-technical users to rapidly identify samples in the lab, warehouse, loading dock or field, helping to eliminate quarantine areas and expedite materials through the manufacturing lifecycle. Utilizing Raman technology, non-contact analysis can be performed through transparent containers, all while maintaining the volume and integrity of the sample.

The NanoRam handheld Raman spectrometer facilitates fast and convenient transitions between sampling accessories for raw material identification through a variety of packaging. The NanoRam comes standard with the point and shoot, vial holder, and bottle adaptor accessories. These accessories allow you to measure through plastic and glass containers, take in situ measurements of liquids and powders, and measure larger containers only accessible from the top. Additionally, right angle, tablet holder, and immersion shaft accessories are available to facilitate even more sampling situations. The NanoRam comes standard with our proprietary NanoRam OS embedded software, which allows for identification and verification, library and method development, and data storage/ transfer as well as NanoRam ID PC software for data and methods management, allowing customers to export data and generate reports.

Raman spectroscopy is an approved method by the U.S. and European Pharmacopoeia, as well as the Pharmacopoeia of the People’s Republic of China. It is also a well-recognized method for compliance with the PIC/S GMP guide regarding 100% identity assurance for starting materials. The NanoRam is fully compliant with all governing regulations, including 21 CFR Part 11 and Part 1040.10, and can play an integral role in cGMP compliant facilities. B&W Tek offers a wide variety of services, including assistance with method and/or new library development as well as support with IQ/OQ/PQ implementation.
