TURBOCHARGING RAMAN MEASUREMENTS WITH HTVS™ (HIGH-THROUGHPUT VIRTUAL SLIT) SPECTROMETERS

A Raman measurement that is intended for quantification needs to be fast, accurate, and precise, encapsulating the best possible resolution in both wavelength and intensity. This white paper describes the proprietary HyperFlux optical spectrometer designs developed by Tornado Spectral Systems using its core HTVS technology.

9 COMPONENT MULTIVARIATE CALIBRATION FOR THE ANALYSIS OF METABOLITES

An assessment by Sanofi UK of the performance of the HyperFlux™ PRO Plus Raman Spectroscopy System for the quantitative analysis of biochemical components in a simplified chemically defined pseudo growth medium for mammalian cell culture.

HIGH THROUGHPUT VIRTUAL SLIT (HTVS™) & LIMIT OF DETECTION (LOD) PERFORMANCE

This application note demonstrates the improved detection limits and corresponding minimum required acquisition times of four binary mixtures using Tornado’s HyperFlux™ PRO Plus Raman spectroscopy system. Higher sensitivity is achieved by using HTVS to eliminate the conventional trade-off between spectral resolution and optical throughput.

REACTION MONITORING

In this application note, a major pharmaceutical company needed to monitor the conversion of benzoic anhydride to the corresponding ester. We present how Tornado’s HyperFlux PRO Plus provided a fast and accurate monitoring tool to confirm reaction quality and optimize reaction timing.

REAL-TIME DETERMINATION OF EVA CROSSLINKING

Tornado’s HyperFlux U1 spectrometer was deployed for Raman analysis to determine the degree of curing of ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) in a photovoltaic module manufacturing line and was shown to have enough sensitivity and speed to be an effective tool for real-time, in-line quality control and process optimization.

RECYCLED POLYMER EXTRUSION

Raman spectroscopy is a highly-selective and non-destructive optical spectroscopy technique which relies on the inelastic scattering of laser light to probe molecular structure. We present new insights into a recycled polymer extrusion process.
