B&W Tek is an advanced instrumentation producer of Raman spectroscopy instrumentation and systems for the pharmaceutical, biomedical and chemical industries, as well as research communities.

Since 1997, the company has combined innovative technologies with custom design and manufacturing capabilities to deliver high-quality Raman spectroscopy solutions through user-friendly mobile platforms.

Advanced Raman spectrometers for material identification

B&W Tek offers a complete line of high-performance, portable and handheld Raman spectrometers for laboratory applications.

The company’s extensive portfolio comprises an assortment of ready-to-use, off-the-shelf products that can be combined to form a complete setup.

B&W Tek offers clients a combination of lasers, spectrometers, accessories and software, which are designed and manufactured in-house.

Portable Raman measurement analysers through opaque packaging

The i-Raman® Pro ST is the latest addition to B&W Tek’s award-winning i-Raman series, which is designed to deliver rapid material identification through a variety of barrier layers and packaging.

This versatile device combines a high-throughput spectrometer, advanced algorithms and specialised sampling optics in a portable Raman measurement system.

It collects Raman signals from beneath the top diffusion layers, including white plastic bottles, paper envelopes and tablet coatings, which enables a sample to be processed without opening the container or tablet capsule. This significantly reduces the risk of material contamination, while maintaining product integrity.

The i-Raman® Pro ST can be used for Raman analysis across a wide range of rapid molecular identification applications.

The device can also be set-up to run on batteries for Raman collection and analysis outside the laboratory.

Mobile software for analysis of molecules for material identification

B&W Tek offers a range of integrated software packages that are compatible with the i-Raman® Pro ST.

This mobile software allows for quick material identification and real-time predictions through easy-to-use spectral data acquisition functions that collect and export data, as well as provides basic post-processing and analysis.

The flexible packages can also be connected in a laboratory via an external computer and B&W Tek’s full software development kit (SDK) allows advanced users to build their own software or integrate it into a larger system. In addition, the program can be paired with BWSpecPC software, which offers additional analysis capabilities.
