Advanced handheld Raman spectrometer

Material identification


From the evolution of handheld spectroscopy comes Progeny, the first handheld Raman analyzer designed to be customizable and flexible for seamless integration into any work environment. Now you can perform lab-quality analysis of the widest range of solids, powders, liquids, and other substances to ensure consumer safety around the globe.

Raman for streamlining your material ID workflow

Progeny provides the power of Raman spectroscopy in a handheld form with no compromises. Users are empowered to choose the complexity of the task at hand. Progeny’s unique software design provides articulate communication of a simple PASS/FAIL decision or more detailed analysis results — for a variety of applications in the lab, in the field or wherever data is needed.

1064 nm laser for superior Raman performance

At Progeny’s core is an advanced miniature VPG-based 1064 nm optical engine offering benchtop quality analytical performance in a rugged, ergonomic and IP-68 sealed enclosure. Progeny’s fully customizable workflow software is 21 CFR Part 11 compliant and boasts a smartphone inspired user interface (UI), shortening the learning curve, allowing rapid implementation of material ID methods, and significantly improving return on investment.
