Application Note: Raw Material Identity Verification in Biopharmaceutical Production Using the Agilent RapID Raman System
4 March 2019

Biological compounds derived from living cells offer exciting possibilities for treatment of a growing number of medical conditions. Most biologically derived proteins cannot be terminally sterilized and must be produced under aseptic conditions. This Application Note describes the use of spatially offset Raman spectroscopy (SORS) and the Agilent RapID Raman system for verifying common starting materials in biological production without compromising sterility.
