Rigaku Progeny (Pharma - 21 CFR)


Progeny™ is the world’s first completely handheld Raman spectrometer
designed to seamlessly integrate into any work environment for:

  • Raw Material Identification
    of pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and cosmetic ingredients
  • Verification
    of trial materials, chemicals, solvents and cell culture media
  • Authentication
    of finished products and anti-counterfeit prevention

Progeny is a superior functioning portable Raman spectrometer, expertly designed for process including incoming material receiving, the warehouse, clean room, laboratory analysis and mobile lab for enhanced pharmaceutical quality assurance, pharmaceutical quality control, counterfeit pharmaceutical screening, and other applications.


Unlike other portable Raman spectrometers, Progeny successfully overcomes sample-induced fluorescence interference with the use of a unique 1064nm excitation laser for expanded positive material identification. Sample moisture content is not an issue either. Progeny handheld Raman spectrometer delivers the industry’s widest and most comprehensive range of raw material identification and finished pharmaceutical product authentication in a handheld, sealed platform.

Progeny accessory items accommodate a variety of packaging materials and sample shapes for optimal analysis. The dual-purpose docking stations provides seamless data transfer to your LIMS or other data storage location required by your SOP.


Raw Material Identification


The globalization of the pharmaceutical supply chain and push towards 100% material inspection has led to a significant increase in the demand for cost effective, efficient and regulatory compliant methods for raw material identification (RMID) and chemical verification. Strict quality assurance and quality control measures are more important than ever to ensuring the safety and efficacy of products before reaching consumers.
Traditional workflows involve sending samples to external laboratories for analysis. However, this can result in additional costs and time delays. By implementing a raw material identification method that offers ease of use, a comprehensive range of sampling capabilities and rapid, customizable software at the point of need, a lean manufacturing process can be achieved.
Pharmaceutical manufacturers can now achieve 100% raw material identification, verify chemicals and solvents, as well as authenticate final products quickly and confidently. Using Progeny 1064nm handheld Raman, users can achieve Good Manufacturing Practices and comply with 21 CFR Part 11.
Raman spectroscopy is now recognized by the U.S. Pharmacopoeia and the European Pharmacopeia for raw material identification.

Progeny 1064nm handheld Raman spectrometer broadens the analysis range for pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and cosmetic raw materials; enabling manufacturers to achieve positive material identification outside the lab, inside the lab or anywhere rapid lab-quality analysis is needed. Progeny offers unique benefits that until now have not been delivered:

  • Eliminates sample interference – fluorescence or moisture
  • User adjustable focus ensures materials’ analysis, not the packaging
  • User customizable analysis settings
  • Truly compliant 21 CFR Part 11 digital signatures

Laboratory & Mobile Lab Analysis


Today’s laboratories are being built and redesigned to promote workflow efficiency and not constrain workers and their activities. As technology continues to advance, large and outdated equipment is being replaced with smaller and more advanced instrumentation. Traditional benchtop units limit the flexibility of modern laboratories to adopt a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach to data collection and analysis.
Ideal for use in your laboratory and with a small footprint, our handheld and portable laboratory spectrometers provide dual operation as a mini-benchtop system (optional docking station for Progeny and Progeny ResQ) and/or a portable analyzer at a price that is less than half of the average laboratory instrument.

  • Little to no sample prep
  • Non-destructive analysis
  • No chemical consumables or disposal hassle
  • Superior reporting


The adoption of lightweight, battery operated, portable and handheld analytical instruments is changing analysis by empowering professors, academic scientists and students to collaborate more effectively when conducting materials’ science research. By enabling ease of movement throughout lecture halls, classrooms, laboratories and across multiple lecture halls, classrooms and laboratories, portable and handheld analytical instrumentation is facilitating ground-breaking collaborations in the safety and security, pharmaceutical, and biopharmaceutical industries.
Benefiting schools, teachers and most of all students, our instruments combine advanced technological capabilities into a small platform at a price that is lower than most lab-based equipment.

Counterfeit Pharmaceutical Screening


Counterfeit pharmaceutical products are a growing global problem and a concern for both manufacturers and consumers. The global trade in counterfeit goods is booming, with a 2007 report from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) putting a value of counterfeit goods crossing international borders at more than $250 billion.
Consumer goods, chemicals/pesticides, food/beverage products, and precious gems are all targets for counterfeiters. Topping the list of dangers are counterfeit pharmaceuticals, which includes products that contain potentially harmful substances and products that contain little or no amount of active pharmaceutical ingredient (API). As a result, the demand for fast and effective counterfeit pharmaceutical screening methods at border control has increased significantly.


Field-portable counterfeit pharmaceutical screening is achievable using Progeny 1064nm handheld Raman. Issues and concerns over expired product returns? Brand Security teams and regulatory enforcement agencies now have the power to perform chemical composition analysis:

  • Quickly determine product authenticity
  • Rapidly identify counterfeits
  • Immediately remove dangerous imitations from the supply chain
