Rigaku Progeny material ID handheld Raman analyser

Wednesday, 05 March, 2014 | Supplied by: AXT Pty Ltd



The Rigaku Progeny is a handheld analyser designed to deliver comprehensive and accurate materials identification. The analyser has been designed for pharmaceutical, chemical manufacturing and academia markets.

The product’s miniature VPG-based 1064 nm optical engine offers benchtop-quality analytical performance in a rugged, ergonomic and IP68 sealed enclosure. The fully customisable workflow software is 21 CFR Part 11 compliant and has a smartphone-inspired user interface, allowing rapid implementation of material ID methods.

The 1064 nm excitation laser optimises the speed and sensitivity of analysis, minimises fluorescence interferences and broadens the range of measurable materials. The 512-pixel InGaAs detector delivers good resolution, analytics and signal to noise, handling challenging mixture analyses. The ultrafast quad-core processor manages demanding search and quantification algorithms, while the sampling accessories and adjustable focus optimises sensitivity.

The product’s sleek shape provides easy, single-hand entry into industrial barrels/drums, allowing users to view the screen while the instrument is in a downward orientation. The sealed system guards against moisture and dust, enabling rugged warehouse use and easy cleaning while minimising cross-contamination risk.

The multitouch, high-contrast screen and large-sized hard buttons make the device easy to use in labs, warehouses or in the field. Remote connectivity is enabled using both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The integrated digital camera for barcode entry and sample snapshots improves workflow efficiency and data tracking.

The intuitive user interface allows for simple development of new applications and adaptation of current workflows. The product runs simple or advanced chemometric applications directly on board the analyser for both qualitative and quantitative method development. The company says its wavelets-based spectral match algorithm ensures confidence in sample identification.
