B&W Tek NanoRam® Handheld Raman Spectrometer

The NanoRam® is a state-of-the-art compact Raman handheld spectrometer and integrated computing system for material identification and verification within cGMP compliant facilities. Designed for use by non-specialists, the NanoRam is easy to use and operates single-handedly, weighing less than 2.2lbs. It allows rapid development of standardized and validated methods to facilitate inspection for purity and quality, making it the ideal choice for pharmaceutical, chemical, and material identification, whether in the lab, the warehouse, the loading dock or the field.

The NanoRam is the only handheld Raman device that features a temperature controlled detector, providing superior data quality and unprecedented system stability. Coupling this proprietary thermoelectric cooling with our patented CleanLaze® laser stabilization technology and high speed micro-processor, it provides laboratory performance in the palm of your hand. The first rate signal reduces the need for further testing, therefore decreasing production costs and escalating productivity, all at the same time.

B&W Tek offers a wide variety of services designed to suit your needs, including extended warranty plans, annual recertification services, assistance with method and/or new library development and other services such as support with IQ/OQ/PQ validation.


  • Advanced Statistical Algorithms for Identification & Verification
  • Wi-Fi & USB Communication for Data Sync & Management
  • Intuitive Software for Technical & Non-technical Users
  • Sampling Accessories for Almost Any Environment
  • Easy Library & Data Transfer Capabilities


State-of-the-art Identification Software

The NanoRam comes standard with B&W Tek’s proprietary Nanoram OS installed within the unit, which allows for identification and verification, library and method development, and data storage/ transfer. The Nanoram ID is designed for use on PCs and the iSpec Mobile is for tablet computers (such as the iPad) for data and methods management, allowing customers to export data and generate reports. The Nanoram ID and the Nanoram OS software packages are 21CFR part 11 compliant with available IQ/OQ validation documentation for pharmaceutical customers.

Additionally, the NanoRam provides Wi-Fi synchronization capabilities with network terminals in order to optimize time and resources. Nanoram OS is also capable of real time data and report transfers to ERP/QMS systems in order to centralize information (such as libraries, method development and final reports) in general servers. Unlike any other handheld instrument, the NanoRam is capable of transferring libraries from one unit to another utilizing proprietary algorithms to assure compatibility.

For customers that require a more detailed personalization of the user interface or method development, B&W Tek offers an optional software development kit (SDK) for software customization.

Sampling Accessories

Easy Transition Between Sample Types

These sampling accessories allow for measurement of various materials in the form of liquids, gels, powders, or solids under both lab and demanding environmental conditions. The point and shoot attachment is ideal for in-field sampling of materials and is capable of measuring through plastic and glass containers. The vial holder attachment allows for in situ measurements of liquids and powders, in either an 8mm or 15mm vial. The right angle attachment is ideal for measuring larger containers which are only accessible from the top. Additional application specific adapters are also available.
