The Inspector 500 SWIR Raman system for the pharmaceutical industry.

Analytik has announced the UK and Ireland release of the SciAps Inspector 500 SWIR Raman system for the pharmaceutical analysis of API’s and excipients including cellulose-based materials like Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC’s), Croscarmellose, nutrients like Folic Acid; and other complex molecules.

The Inspector 500, featuring shortwave-infrared Raman technology, offers a new choice in handheld Raman analyzers. The Inspector 500 features a novel 1030 nm laser and proprietary detector. This laser suppresses fluorescence, allowing for even highly fluorescing compounds to be easily analyzed - including those complex API's and excipients like Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCCs), that traditional 785 nm lasers cannot analyze.

MCC is a particularly good example because it can be modified to different degrees of crystallinity usually in the range of 40% to 60%. The Raman peaks from MCC that have a higher proportion of amorphous material (i.e. less crystallinity) will be broader with the 785 nm laser, thus requiring the 1030 nm Inspector 500 for verification.

Equally important, the proprietary detector technology operates with very low power consumption so no fans or ultralight batteries are required. The result is a lightweight Raman analyzer that may be used all day long. It is easily cleaned to avoid sample contamination or cross contamination.

The Inspector 500 is the world's first and only 1 µm laser system to offer so many user benefits: it defeats fluorescence, is light weight, has easy one-handed operation and is environmentally sealed.

Engineered specifically for the analysis of high-fluorescence samples, for example those samples with complex molecules or many contaminants as encountered in a pharmaceutical laboratory, the Inspector 500 supports advanced chemometric algorithm processing which is required for materials that are difficult to discriminate.

The key features are listed here:
• Significantly expands the number of samples which can be identified
• Rapid-fire response times with on-board processing
• Supports advanced algorithms and large library processing
• Highly visible 4.3” TFT LCD touch screen display
• Jog wheel option for menu selection
• High performance, high QE cooled detector
• Multiple sampling options: vial holder for powders & liquids, supports multiple sized vials and incorporates the NuScope™ adapter for Raman microscopy
