Detects chemicals like no other

The mobile Raman spectrometer RapID is the next generation of raw materials identity verification: For the first time, pharmaceutical and chemical companies will now be able to analyze raw materials directly in HDPE containers, polyethylene big bags, white or brown paper bags, polyethylene bags, brown glass bottles and many other containers without the need to open them. Sampling as well as time-consuming, expensive lab analyses can now be replaced by efficient identity verifications directly in the incoming goods area. The patented SORS technology in conjunction with the LiteThru™ Engine is able to separately analyze spectra of packaging materials and raw materials.

  • Patented Spatially Offset Raman Spectroscopy (SORS) technology and LiteThru™ Engine
  • GMP and 21CFR part11 compatible for a safe operation in the strict pharmaceutical environment
  • Raman-spectroscopy for highest quality spectra and selectivity
  • Intuitive validation routine (selectivity test, positive and negative test) directly at the device without the need for external software
  • Mobile roller container with robust optical fibres for daily use in the incoming goods area
  • Measurement within seconds of liquids, solids and pasty raw materials for an efficient identity verification
  • Network and LIMS compatible output formats

Areas of application

  • Identity verification in the incoming goods area
  • Measurement of toxic raw materials in closed containers
  • Anti-counterfeit
  • Final product control
