B&W Tek produces optical spectroscopy and laser instrumentation for pharmaceutical companies.
High-power laser technology for the medical sector
B&W Tek offers laboratory, portable and handheld Raman systems, as well as spectroscopy and laser solutions for the pharmaceutical, biomedical and chemical industries.
The company's core technologies include Raman, laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS), near-infrared spectroscopy (NIR), ultraviolet-visible (UV/VIS) spectrometers, light sources, and accessories.
B&W Tek has shipped more than 10,000 portable and handheld Ramen spectrometer systems, including the NanoRam, which is a range of small handheld instruments with an integrated computing system.
The spectrometer identifies and verifies materials for current good manufacturing practice (cGMP) compliant facilities.
B&W Tek uses ready-to-use, off-the-shelf handheld Raman products, which are built using lasers and spectrometers designed and manufactured by the company's team.
Raman spectroscopy is used for qualitative and quantitative analysis of organic and inorganic compounds.
The company's products meet CFR 21 Part 11 standards and reduce production costs within cGMP facilities, while also increasing productivity.
Identification and verification of materials
NanoRam identifies and verifies materials such as APIs, excipients, intermediates and finished products. It can be used by non-technical users to identify samples in the lab, warehouse, loading dock or field.
The spectrometer eliminates quarantine areas and expedites materials through the manufacturing lifecycle.
Non-contact analysis can be performed using Raman technology through transparent containers, while maintaining the integrity of the sample.
Raman spectroscopy has been certified by US and European Pharmacopoeia, as well as the Pharmacopoeia of the People's Republic of China. This method complies with the PIC/S good manufacturing practice (GMP) guide concerning identity assurance for materials.
B&W Tek provides assistance with method and new library development, and offers assistance with IQ/OQ/PQ implementation.
NanoRam features a user-friendly interface for technical and non-technical users, and measures various samples in different environments and packaging using a single unit.
The spectrometer features superior hardware to ensure reliable results. Multivariate algorithms maintain accuracy when testing and identifying materials.
NanoRam can be used for incoming material identification, substance investigation, at-line sampling, inspection and counterfeit detection applications. The spectrometer complies with all governing regulations, including 21 CFR Part 11 and Part 1040.10.
