Material Identification

NanoRam from B&W Tek is a handheld Raman instrument capable of point-and-press identification or validation of raw materials. Very easy to use, NanoRam uses state-of-the-art laser and cooled sensor technology to capture a Raman spectrum from a solid or liquid material sample and compare it with library spectra to determine a % match for material ID purposes.

NanoRam is aimed at raw material identification and verification, at-line sampling and final inspection. NanoRam has touchscreen operation, and produces accurate, reproducable data which can be transmitted from the unit via wi-fi to a main database with a full audit trail. The proprietary NanoRam OS software supports CFR21 part 11 requirements for electronic records. A range of sampling accessories is available for gels, liquids, powders and solids.

The TacticID® handheld Raman spectrometer range is ideal for rapid identification of unknown chemicals, explosives and narcotics directly in the field or in the lab. The TacticID® allows users to get real-time actionable identification of potential threats while reducing operational uncertainty and response time without ever compromising the integrity of the sample, or the chain of evidence. 

Two models are shown below. TacticID-GP is a field-ready handheld spectral analysis instrument designed for non-contact forensic analysis by safety personnel and first responders, including law enforcement personnel, customs and border patrol, hazmat technicians, bomb squads. TacticID-N is a field-ready handheld instrument specifically designed for non-contact forensic analysis of narcotics, pharmaceutical drugs, cutting agents and precursors by law enforcement personnel.

NanoRam brings handheld Raman to a broad range of applications including pharmaceutical, food and beverage, speciality chemicals, forensic analysis, emergency response and counterfeit drug detection.

NanoRAM

The NanoRam is a state-of-the-art handheld Raman instrument for nondestructive identification and verification of materials such as APIs, excipients, intermediates, and finished products. Compact and agile, the NanoRam can be used by non-technical users to rapidly identify samples in the lab, warehouse, loading dock or field, helping to eliminate quarantine areas and expedite materials through the manufacturing lifecycle. Utilizing Raman technology, non-contact analysis can be performed through transparent containers, all while maintaining the volume and integrity of the sample. NanoRam facilitates fast and convenient transitions between sampling accessories for raw material identification through a variety of packaging.

TacticID-GP

The TacticID®–GP is a field-ready handheld spectral analysis instrument designed for non-contact forensic analysis by safety personnel and first responders, including law enforcement personnel, customs and border patrol, hazmat technicians, bomb squads, and more. The TacticID-GP allows users to get real-time actionable identification and analysis of unknown chemicals, narcotics, pharmaceutical drugs and other substances while reducing operational uncertainty and response time.

TacticID-N

The TacticID®–N is a field-ready handheld instrument specifically designed for non-destructive forensic analysis of narcotics, pharmaceutical drugs, cutting agents and precursors by law enforcement personnel. It allows users to get real-time actionable identification and analysis of unknown chemicals, narcotics, pharmaceutical drugs and other substances while reducing operational uncertainty and response time.

NanoLIBS

The NanoLIBS is a state-of-the-art handheld Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy instrument using elemental analysis for identification and investigation of raw materials such as ionic salts such as NaCl and KCl within a regulated environment. Compact and agile, the NanoLIBS can be used by non-technical users to rapidly identify samples in the lab, warehouse, loading dock or field, helping to eliminate quarantine areas and expedite materials through the manufacturing lifecycle. It is the only handheld LIBS device on the market addressing specific raw material ID applications with full regulatory compliancy.

QTRam

QTRam™ for nondestructive and real-time pharmaceutical content and blend uniformity measurement.

Powered by B&W Tek's award-winning STRaman™ technology, the QTRam provides the platform for solid dosage content uniformity testing, confirming proper concentration of the active ingredients in finished products, even through sample coatings. QTRam is a one-system tool for multiple applications including blend and content uniformity, formulation development, and counterfeit detection.

The QTRam can quantify multiple components in a single scan for at-line monitoring and final product release, and is the ideal tool for solid dosage analysis with no disposal cost, consumables or sample preparation required.

The QTRam comes equipped with B&W Tek's portable lab-grade high-throughput Raman spectrometer system, the QT-Sampler quantitative transmission module, easy-to-use 21CFR Part 11 compliant BWAnalyst™ software (operated using the onboard touchscreen), and two standard sample holders with customizable holders available.


STRam

STRam™ is a Portable Raman Analyzer for Rapid Analysis and Identification Through Opaque Barriers. 

Uniting a high throughput spectrometer, specialized sampling optics and advanced algorithms in a portable Raman system, STRam delivers rapid material identification capabilities through a variety of barrier layers and packaging previously impenetrable with Raman. STRam can collect Raman signal generated underneath diffusive top layers to identify material inside even visually opaque barriers such as white plastic bottles, paper envelopes and tablet coatings. This removes the need to open containers and come in contact with the material, thus maintaining package and sample integrity. The system design features a large sampling depth and sampling area and minimized power density, facilitating the measurement of samples that can be challenging for conventional focused Raman spectroscopy.
