Great instrument, we have saved a lot of money and time on external analysis.
Application Area: ID of raw material for the pharma industry
"Really easy to use, analysts can use it with little training, results have been reliable for the 2 years we have had the TruScan, minimun maintenance and no need to buy standards."

The Thermo Scientific TruScan RM Raman overall is an excellent analytical device
"The Thermo Scientific TruScan RM Raman handheld device is easy to use overall. Additionally - analytical results are reproducible and efficient! Being able to reduce cycle times from testing/release is very important from a customer basis. One 'user friendly' improvement that could be made is to offer the ability to connect an external keyboard that would be possible with the addition of a USB port."
The TruScan RM analyzer includes state-of-the-art optics paired with a patented multivariate residual analysis that offers an effective chemometric solution for material identification, with two spectral pre-processing options. The analyzer’s non-destructive point-and-shoot sampling principle facilitates rapid verification of a broad range of chemical compounds, including cellulose-based products.
The TruScan RM analyzer with TruTools becomes a more powerful spectrometer. Applications for QA/QC include enhanced raw material ID for similar compounds, multiple component ID, and identification and quantification of finished products. In PAT, applications include at-line endpoint determination for distillations, reaction monitoring, and powder blending operations.
TruTools leverages Solo, a chemometrics software package from Eigenvector Research Inc. that allows users to develop models that can be deployed onto the TruScan RM analyzer.
