The NanoRam is designed for rapid incoming material inspection at the point of need. Its robust hardware provides high quality data with low noise, leading to consistent and reliable results with fast measurement times. Even samples that have weak Raman signal can be identified with the NanoRam because of this high dynamic range system.

  • Non-destructive material identification and verification
  • Intuitive software with easy touchscreen operation
  • Choice of 785 or 1064-nm laser excitation for optimal identification of raw materials including active pharmaceutical ingredients, excipients, lubricants, solvents, and colorants
  • Even samples that have high fluorescence signal can be identified with the NanoRam-1064
  • Robust algorithms for user-definable methods and libraries for reliable material verification

Straightforward raw material ID

NanoRam can be used by non-technical users to rapidly identify samples in the lab, warehouse, loading dock or field. This allows for a more efficient verification of materials for use in manufacturing without requiring time-consuming trainings.

All advantages of Raman spectroscopy in a handheld system

Raman spectroscopy has high chemical specificity, giving the molecular fingerprint that can uniquely identify your sample without any need for sample preparation. Raman spectra can be measured directly from your sample, or through transparent glass or plastic packaging, maintaining sample integrity and minimizing operator exposure and sample contamination.

NanoRam comes with sampling accessories optimized for different sample types, from solids and liquids, to gels and tablets.

Compliant spectrometer

NanoRam, with 21 CFR Part 11-compliant software, plays an integral role in cGMP-compliant facilities. NanoRam includes performance validation tests to ensure system performance to the standards of Raman spectroscopy pharmacopeial methods including the USP <858>, EP 2.2.48 and JP 2.26, and the People’s Republic of China Pharmacopeia Guidelines on Raman Spectroscopy.
