Thermo Scientific TruScan GP allows for quick, easy chemical identification.

Pharmaceutical manufacturers and regulatory agencies around the world can use a new, cost-effective handheld Raman analyzer to quickly identify raw materials and confirm the authenticity of finished products. The Thermo Scientific TruScan GP offers pharmaceutical identification capabilities for pharmaceutical manufacturers in emerging markets.

“Our objective is to provide reliable chemical identification to more manufacturers and governments around the globe,” said Bob Brush, business development manager, Thermo Fisher Scientific. “The purpose-built, point and shoot TruScan GP is designed to allow more users to accurately identify inconsistencies in materials right away, saving time and money down the line in the manufacturing process as well as in the field of counterfeit screening.”

The TruScan GP analyzer features a patented probabilistic approach to material identification and is designed to assist users to meet a wide variety of regulatory compliance needs within the chemical screening market. The user-built chemical library enables customers to tailor the instrument to meet their specific screening objectives. 

The TruScan GP also offers the following key benefits: 

• Easy to operate, simplified workflow requiring only a few minutes of basic operating instruction;

• Patented algorithmic approach to raw material and finished product identification, allowing users to customize library development and validation inclusive of compliance requirements such as specificity and robustness;

• Portable size and rapid, on-board result reporting designed for effective field-based screening;

• Secure connectivity to archives designed to promote data integrity as well as automatic generation of audit trails and test reports.

The instrument employs Raman spectroscopy, a preferred laser-based analytical technique for pharmaceutical quality control, which works by detecting frequencies of light highly specific to the molecular structure of different liquids and solids. The purpose-built, streamlined, point-and-shoot device is a competitively priced, fully capable identification solution.
