Advanced handheld Raman analyser for pharmaceutical applications

Mar 08 2024

In a recent announcement, Thermo Fisher Scientific introduced the cutting-edge TruScan G3 Handheld Raman Analyzer, designed for swift raw material identification in both small and large molecule pharmaceutical sectors.

The Thermo ScientificTM TruScanTM G3 Handheld Raman Analyzer represents a significant leap forward in raw material identification for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. This portable, user-friendly device empowers operators with minimal training to conduct rapid identity testing on incoming starting materials, validate in-process substances, and distinguish finished drug products, ensuring process quality and audit readiness.

Building upon the success of the industry-leading TruScan RM Handheld Raman Analyzer, the TruScan G3 enables near real-time, non-destructive identification of a wide array of chemical compounds, even through commonly used sealed packaging, eliminating the need for time-consuming laboratory testing. Packed with new features, including a built-in touchscreen display, enhanced sensor performance, updated compound libraries, an innovative immersion probe for in situ testing of solids and liquids, and improved connectivity and data compliance, the TruScan G3 stands out as Thermo Fisher's most intuitive and accessible handheld analyser to date.

Xochitl Javier, Director of Product Management and Marketing at Thermo Fisher, expressed enthusiasm, stating: "As the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sectors increasingly embrace portable Raman testing as the go-to technique for material identification, the all-new TruScan G3 Handheld Raman Analyzer builds on the legacy of its predecessor, allowing for quicker, easier, and more accurate incoming material verification testing. Having this technology can support time and cost savings for our customers and the wider global pharmaceutical community."
