1064 nm laser for Superior Raman Performance

Unlike other handheld Raman spectrometers, Progeny successfully minimizes sample-induced fluorescence interference with the use of a unique 1064 nm excitation laser for expanded raw material identification. Sample moisture content is not an issue either. The Progeny handheld Raman spectrometer 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 with Handheld Raman

Manufacturers must comply with rigorous requirements to ensure consistent production of safe and effective products. The Progeny handheld Raman analyzer 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.
