Innovative Raman Spectrometers Using SORS & TRS for Noninvasive Chemical Analysis

Agilent Raman spectrometers use proprietary spatially offset Raman spectroscopy (SORS) and transmission Raman spectroscopy (TRS) in fields ranging from airport security screening and pharmaceutical quality control, to hazardous chemical identification in the field.

SORS enables our Raman spectrometers to analyze through containers and opaque barriers, from helping first responders identify the contents of suspect packages, to high-throughput raw material identification inside unopened packaging at pharmaceutical quality control. TRS nondestructively screens whole tablets and capsules in seconds, for rapid content uniformity and polymorph analysis in pharma QC and formulation development.

Agilent TRS100 Receives My Green Lab’s ACT Certification Label

The Agilent TRS100 Raman system has been certified with the ACT label in the EU, UK, and US. This clear, third-party verified information about the system’s environmental impact makes it easy for laboratories to choose products that help them achieve their sustainability goals.

Application Note - Vaya Identifies Raw Materials and APIs Through Blue Drums

This study demonstrates Vaya’s ability to verify the identity of pharmaceutical raw materials, ancillary products for pharmaceutical manufacturing, and APIs through opaque containers like blue drums, which are often used to store raw materials sensitive to ambient light. Vaya’s SORS technology and wizard-based method development means QC groups can easily develop methods to ID materials through blue drums.

Agilent Resolve Awarded Highest Score Amongst Handheld Raman Devices in DHS Report

In the United States, the Agilent Resolve was awarded the highest overall score amongst handheld Raman devices available in the market in an assessment conducted by the Department of Homeland Security's System Assessment and Validation for Emergency Responders (SAVER) program. In the independent evaluation performed by emergency responders, the Resolve also scored the highest in the "Capability" criterion, exceeding the expectations of all evaluators as it correctly identified samples through all containers used at the assessment.

Through Container Verification of Pharmaceutical Raw Materials with the New Agilent Vaya Handheld Raman System

This webcast describes raw material verification testing through transparent and non-transparent packaging using the new Agilent Vaya Raman system. Vaya is the first handheld Raman spectrometer incorporating spatially offset Raman spectroscopy (SORS) technology for the quick identification of raw materials through containers. SORS reduces the need for sampling, saving cost, and resources by testing incoming goods quickly in the warehouse. Vaya combines the capabilities of conventional Raman systems with SORS for maximum sample/container compatibility. A range of container/material combinations will be discussed.
