The Agilent Vaya handheld Raman spectrometer increases raw material identity verification throughput without increasing costs by reducing the need for sampling. From clear glass vials to brown paper sacks, Vaya offers best-in-class testing through transparent containers, and transformative handheld testing through nontransparent containers – for the fastest possible release to manufacturing.

Vaya improves current testing protocols—from low volume sampling to 100% ID testing— and if regulators require more testing in future, you can move to a higher-throughput process without any additional equipment. The system combines conventional Raman with unique spatially offset Raman spectroscopy (SORS) for maximum sample/container compatibility. With a dedicated raw material identity testing workflow, Vaya is fast, fully compliant, easy to deploy and simple to use, requiring minimal training or operator skill.

Key features

  • Work smarter: ID through opaque containers in seconds. No sampling booth needed, minimum material handling
  • Compatible with most raw materials and containers: SORS technology verifies raw material for maximum sample/container compatibility identity without interference from the container or liner, minimizing fluorescence
  • Powerful, Fast and robust and Reliable to container variation: Vaya works faster than conventional handheld systems through transparent containers and handles opaque containers like white or colored tubs, FIBCs, papers bags, and amber bottles
  • Preserve container integrity: eliminate exposure to hazardous materials, maintain the shelf life of sterile contents, and prevent unnecessary waste
  • Easy to use: dedicated raw material ID workflow with clear Pass/Fail analysis and intuitive method development wizard, requires minimal training
  • GMP compliant: batch identification and method development with full audit trail, supports 21 CFR Part 11 compliance.
  • Ready to deploy: minimal training and fast method development—Vaya can start returning its investment quickly. LIMS-compatible data, 2D-barcode reader for fast data input/method selection and Wi-Fi for data synchronization
