Rigaku Analytical Devices to present during Thai Industrial Pharmacist Association (TIPA) Webinar

Rigaku Analytical Devices will present its solution for raw material identification during a webinar hosted by the Thai Industrial Pharmacist Association (TIPA).

Rigaku Analytical Devices, the market leader in handheld 1064nm Raman technology, will present its solution for raw material identification during a webinar hosted by the Thai Industrial Pharmacist Association (TIPA) on July 16, 2020 at 9:30am ICT / 8:30pm EDTCrest Nanosolution Limited, a local partner of Rigaku located in Thailand, has been instrumental in setting up this event.

Thai Industrial Pharmacist Association (TIPA), founded in September 2011, is a non-profit organization representing members from the pharmaceutical / biopharmaceutical industry, regulatory agencies, academia and service providers. TIPA is also accredited from the Pharmacy Council of Thailand as an institution for continuing pharmaceutical education. TIPA plays a very important role in the field of industrial pharmacy and pharmaceutical science in Thailand by organizing various local and international conferences to promote the exchange of knowledge and research in industrial pharmacy and related fields. The association also works closely with other associations in the region and around the world.

In the session titled, “Application of Handheld Raman for Raw Material Identification and Verification,” Jill Carreiro, Global Pharmaceutical Business Development Director at Rigaku Analytical Devices, will present an overview of the role of handheld Raman spectroscopy in the pharmaceutical market and how the needs and regulations of the industry have changed globally. In addition, the implementation of the Rigaku Progeny handheld 1064nm Raman analyzer for raw material identification, at-line, and finished product quality testing will be discussed.

Pharmacists will earn 1 CPE credit for participating.

About the Rigaku Progeny 1064nm Handheld Raman Analyzer

The Progeny handheld Raman offers the proven robustness required for high-throughput raw materials testing while being uniquely versatile enough to provide the scientific answers needed for more experimental applications. Its use of 1064nm Raman spectroscopy provides less fluorescence issues that traditional handheld Raman spectrometers are susceptible to with the added benefit of scanning through packaging. This means an increase in the speed of analysis, expanded number of materials that can be measured, and improved selectivity for greater confidence.

Additional smart features available include:

  • Ergonomically angled display with large touchscreen buttons for single-hand operation
  • Built in camera / barcode scanner
  • Adjustable focus nose cone to measure through thick polymer or dark glass
  • IP-68 sealed system to minimize cross-contamination
  • Intuitive touchscreen user interface
  • Full control of analysis parameters
  • High-speed multi-function processor and on-board memory
  • Automated data backup process for confident audit trail and data integrity
  • Connect to PC/server path via USB or WiFi
  • 100% permanent file of data resides on tool
  • 21 CFR compliant firmware and sync software

The Progeny analyzer is supported by the Rigaku global sales and support distribution team, offering 24//7 Reachback support, library updates and software upgrades for the life of the analyzer.
