The spectrometer is designed to identify and verify APIs, excipients, intermediates and finished products.
Raman technology ensures that non-contact analysis can be performed, while preserving the integrity of the sample.
NanoRam features intuitive software and an easy-to-use interface for technical and non-technical users.
The spectrometer uses multivariate algorithms to accurately test and identify materials.
NanoRam can identify samples in the lab, warehouse, loading dock or in the field.
B&W Tek manufactures Raman systems and has shipped more than 10,000 spectrometers.

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.
