Raw Material Identification
Raw material identification and verification is important for any industry, and a regulatory requirement for pharmaceutical manufacturers. Raman instruments provide a molecular fingerprint of samples measured and provide nondestructive identification and verification of materials such as active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), excipients, intermediates, and finished products. It is also a well-recognized method for compliance with the PIC/S GMP guide regarding 100% identity assurance for starting materials. Utilizing portable and handheld Raman instrumentation, non-contact analysis can be performed through transparent containers, all while maintaining the volume and integrity of the sample. The handheld NanoRam, purpose-built for material ID in the pharmaceutical industry, 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. Being able to take the instrument to the sample, wherever it is in the manufacturing environment, provides efficiencies in raw material, and final product acceptance without the need for material movement or sample preparation.
