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.
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.

The NanoRam™ is ideal for the rapid and non-destructive analysis of incoming raw materials and API’s, additives, and excipients. Due to the ultraportable design coupled with cutting edge technology, laboratory quality Raman measurements can now efficiently be taken to the sample without sacrificing performance.

Food & Beverage
Raw material identification in the manufacturing of food products is becoming more important than ever. Not only can the NanoRam™ be used for raw material identification and verification, but when used in conjunction with commercially available SERS substrates, it can also be used for the detection of deadly contaminates.

Producers of counterfeit products are becoming more and more proficient every day in creating products and packaging that is visually identical to the real product. Since the NanoRam™ probes information directly from the molecular composition of the material, it can easily identify the most convincing copy.
