New Material ID Handheld Analyser Redefines Performance and Ease of Use

Mar 18 2014

Rigaku Raman Technologies (USA), manufacturer of handheld and portable Raman spectrometers, has announced its next generation handheld analyser, the Rigaku Progenyä, designed from the ground up to deliver the industry’s most comprehensive and accurate materials identification, and improved ease of use, adaptability and reliability. At Progeny’s core is an advanced miniature VPG-based 1064nm optical engine offering bench top quality analytical performance in a rugged,ergonomic and IP-68 sealed enclosure. Progeny’s fully customisable workflow software is 21 CFR Part 11 compliant and boasts a smartphone-inspired user interface (UI) shortening the learning curve, allowing rapid implementation of material ID methods, and significantly improvingreturn on investment. Rigaku Raman unveiled the Progeny analyser at a press conference at Pittcon 2014 in Chicago, IL USA. 

“As the first company to bring a 1064nm handheld Raman analyser to market, Rigaku Raman has once again leveraged its deep understanding of Raman spectroscopy and handheld designs to achieve breakthrough technological and design advancements,” said Bree Allen, general manager for Rigaku Raman. “Progeny will reset customer expectations in the market because when compared to other handhelds available today, it offers a level of functionality and performance that simply has not been achievable in the past.”

The new Progeny analyser has been designed for pharmaceutical, chemical manufacturing and academia markets and raises the bar on the speed and accuracy inspectors, chemists and scientists can expect from a handheld Raman analyser. Key benefits of the new system include: 1064nm high-power excitation laser optimises speed and sensitivity of analysis, minimises fluorescence interferences, broadening the range of materials that can be measured when compared to other Raman laser types; an innovative 512-pixel InGaAs detector which delivers improved resolution, analytics and signal to noise, handling the most challenging mixture analyses; an ultra-fast quad-core processor to manage the most demanding search and quantification algorithms without requiring remote desktop work, plus sampling accessories and adjustable focus optimises sensitivity and delivers the highest confidence in results from a broad range of samples.
