Advanced handheld Raman spectrometer

A portable Raman spectrometer for material identification


Perform lab-quality analysis of the widest range of solids, powders, liquids and other substances with handheld Progeny Raman spectrometer. Designed to be customized and flexible for seamless integration into any work environment for:

  • Raw material identification of pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and cosmetic ingredients
  • Verification of trial materials, chemical, solvents and cell culture media
  • Authentication of finished products and anti-counterfeit prevention

Streamlining material ID workflow

Progeny is a technologically advanced portable Raman spectrometer, expertly designed for processes including incoming material receiving, the warehouse, clean room, laboratory analysis and mobile lab. With the push towards 100% inspection, Progeny handheld Raman analyzer enables users to reduce workflow steps and make immediate decisions. CompleteID software provides fast and simple PASS / FAIL results, helping to achieve leaner manufacturing processes and lower costs per analysis without compromising quality.

1064nm laser for superior Raman performance

Unlike other portable Raman spectrometers, Progeny successfully minimizes sample-induced fluorescence interference with the use of a unique 1064nm excitation laser for expanded positive material identification. Sample moisture content is not an issue either. Progeny handheld Raman analyzer delivers the industry’s widest and most comprehensive range of raw material identification and finished pharmaceutical product authentication in a handheld, sealed platform.

Regulatory Compliance

Manufacturers must comply with rigorous requirements to ensure consistent production of safe and effective products. Progeny handheld Raman facilitates regulatory compliance by providing a complete IQ/OQ/PQ protocol package, unique and truly compliant 21 CFR Part 11 digital signatures and an integrated camera for barcode reading to ensure error free data entry.

Progeny is an FDA 1040, USP, EP, MHRA GMP approved technique.
