Rigaku Raman Technologies’ handheld ramen analyzer, the Rigaku Progeny, is designed to deliver accurate materials identification and improve ease of use, adaptability, and reliability. The Progeny has a 1064 nm high-power excitation laser, which increases speed and sensitivity of analysis and minimizes fluorescence interferences. A 512-pixel detector delivers improved resolution, analytics, and signal-to-noise ratio for handling challenging mixture analyses. The sealed system (IP-68) guards against moisture and dust, enabling rugged warehouse use and easy cleaning while minimizing cross-contamination risk.
The ergonomic design and shape provide single-hand entry into industrial barrels/drums, allowing users to view the screen while the instrument is in a downward orientation. The Progeny’s customizable workflow software is 21 CFR Part 11 compliant and has a smart phone-inspired user interface allowing quick implementation of material ID methods.
