RapID Portable Raman Raw Material ID Verification
Raw Materials ID Verification Through Unopened Containers
RapID™ is the next generation in portable Raman raw materials ID verification, extending high-throughput spectroscopic identification through clear packaging to non-transparent and coloured containers – even multi-layer paper and plastic sacks.
- Portable Raman ID through opaque and coloured sacks, tubs and bottles
- Cost-effective 100% materials ID testing
- Avoid contamination and sampling
- Compatible with most APIs and excipients
- Typical measurement time 5-20 seconds
- Easy learning of new materials: Train > Validate > Release
10x Increase in Testing Throughput
High volumes of materials in opaque containers can create a bottleneck in pharmaceutical manufacturing as a dedicated sampling area is needed to open, sample, test and re-seal each container to verify the content identity.
RapID allows the operator to verify the contents of each container in the warehouse in seconds without opening, sampling or re-sealing, enabling release immediately into production. This saving on handling and lab testing reduces the overhead from hours or days to only minutes per batch.
Avoid Sampling, Maintain Sterility and Prevent Cross-Contamination
Sterile manufacturing of parenteral and biological products benefits from RapID’s non-invasive approach, ensuring no bacterial or cross-contamination by other raw materials. Shelf life storage issues are avoided by not opening the containers in protective environments. Hazardous and toxic APIs, often transported in plastic containers, can be measured safely, without exposing the operators to potential danger.
Compatible with a Wide Range of Containers
Unlike conventional handheld Raman devices, RapID has few restrictions on container types and is compatible with multi-layer paper and plastic sacks, opaque plastic drums and thick amber glass bottles. RapID is also available with a range of optional accessories for working with different shaped containers.
