Innovative Raman Spectrometers 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.

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.

Implementing Transmission Raman for Fast Content Uniformity Testing – from Feasibility Evaluation to a Validated Release Method

The webinar highlights the approach that led to the implementation of transmission Raman spectroscopy for content uniformity testing at a pharmaceutical company. The webinar also discusses the reasons for using transmission Raman spectroscopy for content uniformity and how it works in conjunction with established liquid chromatography (LC) methods.
