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 Critical Quality Attributes (CQAs) within cell cultures and thus provide an important means of monitoring and/or control for bioprocesses. Raman allows the analysis of multiple CQAs with one measurement, hence reducing the number of sensors required to monitor and maintain process integrity.

Downstream Bioprocessing

Protein purification is a critical step that allows harvesting of biotherapeutics produced from a cell culture process. Raman provides a means of molecular characterization in the various aspects of downstream processing to maximize yield, optimize processes and identify impurities.

Chemical

The HyperFlux™ PRO Plus Raman spectrometer allows measurement of low levels of chemical components including impurities, residual reactants and other critical species. In addition, real-time process monitoring of chemical reactions and other dynamic processes enables parameter optimization, analysis of kinetics, and identification of optimal reaction endpoints.

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.
