Acknowledged Leader of Fast, High-precision Chemical Analysis

Raman spectroscopy is used at various stages of bioprocessing, pharmaceutical, chemical processing, petrochemical, polymer and mineral applications. It has become the chief component in reducing costs and guaranteeing product quality. Tornado’s patented High-Throughput Virtual Slit (HTVS™) enhances Raman signal by increasing photon flux by 10x to 30x as compared to conventional spectrometers. Tornado’s chemical analysis & measurement solutions are designed for process, manufacturing, and laboratory Raman spectroscopy applications. We provide the right high-performance instruments to meet your requirements and with Measurements You Can Trust.

Tornado’s proprietary technology offers unrivaled Raman Analysis Solutions for a wide range of applications and end markets.

Upstream Bioprocessing

Raman spectroscopy has been shown to be able to monitor several important metabolites within mammalian cell cultures and thus provide an important means of control for bioprocesses.

Turbocharging Raman Measurements

Case Study

Although Raman spectroscopy is a powerful and flexible analytical tool, Raman signals are usually quite weak – for most molecules, fewer than one Raman scattered photon is generated from one million incident laser photons – so spectrometer efficiency (sensitivity) is of utmost importance.
