NanoRam™ is a new class of small, handheld instruments for materials identification and verification within cGMP compliant facilities. It is a state-of-the-art compact Raman spectrometer and integrated computing system, based on an open systems architecture design that can support a broad range of applications in multiple industries. Designed for use by non-specialists, it is easy to use and operates single-handedly. The company’s initial goal for the NanoRam is to provide a solution to pharmaceutical customers who need to deploy instruments in volume among different sites, to efficiently analyze active pharmaceutical ingredients, excipients and drug products as part of a LEAN manufacturing and quality process. It allows rapid development of standardized and validated methods to facilitate 100 percent inspection for purity and quality, as mandated by government regulators within operational guidelines provided by U.S. and international pharmacopeia. The instrument reduces production costs and escalates productivity. Using USP certified samples, Raman spectral libraries are available for pharmaceutical materials and new spectra can be easily generated and added to existing libraries. The instrument is equipped with B&W Tek’s patented CleanLaze® technology for exceptional laser stabilization and narrow linewidth. Other features include a spectral resolution below 10 cm-1, wide Raman shift coverage up to 3200cm-1, and a TE cooled 2048 pixel CCD array. Weighing less than 1.1 kg, the instrument’s small, compact package, large OLED display and low power consumption provides high-quality Raman measurements and ease of use anywhere. The unit comes with a range of sampling accessories for gels, liquids, powders and solids.
