Agilent - Portable Raw Material ID Verification - Agilent RapID

The RapID system is the next generation in portable Raman raw materials ID verification, extending high-throughput spectroscopic analysis through clear packaging to nontransparent and colored containers. 

ID testing of materials in opaque containers can create a bottleneck in pharmaceutical manufacturing. A dedicated sampling area is needed to open, sample, test and re-seal each container to verify the content's identity. 

The RapID system uses spatially offset Raman spectroscopy (SORS) technology, which is a unique Raman variant ideally suited to noninvasive ID verification of raw materials. The RapID system allows the operator to verify the contents of each container through opaque and colored packaging in seconds, enabling release immediately into production. This saving on handling and lab testing reduces the overhead from hours or days to only minutes per batch

In routine operations, the RapID system is simple to use and highly suitable for warehouse or material storage environments. Using SORS technology, the system can positively identify raw materials through packaging. Bar code scanning of batch, materials, and container information can be used to streamline routine operation. 

  • Portable Raman ID through opaque and colored sacks, tubs and bottles
  • 100% ID testing for all incoming containers
  • Faster ID workflow
  • Reduce operator time and sample-handling booth usage
  • No contamination - better for quality and operator exposure
  • Avoid sampling, maintain sterility and prevent cross-contamination
  • Sterile manufacturing of parenteral and biological products benefits from the RapID system's noninvasive approach
  • Compatible with most containers, APIs and excipients - Unlike conventional handheld Raman devices, the RapID system is compatible with multi-layer paper and plastic sacks, opaque plastic drums and thick amber glass bottles.
  • RapID has optional accessories to suit your environment and container types
