Outstanding performance and design, intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) supported by a large touch screen - BRAVO is the dedicated handheld Raman solution that speeds up your raw materials identification at a maximum.
BRAVO gives the ability for raw material verification by Raman spectroscopy into everybody’s hands. Be guided straightforward through a reasoned workflow while simply touching icons on a large touch screen. Additionally, the user interface will support you in 17 different languages in parallel.
Handheld Raman spectrometers nowadays are established high valuable analytical instruments, which replace a classical laboratory analysis for many applications.
For instance for incoming goods control, handheld instruments enable a most efficient material release process, of especial importance in the Pharmaceutical industry, where a 100 % control is targeted.
Hand-in-hand with the general trend of miniaturization, a generation of smart instruments is evolving without making compromise in performance. BRAVO has proven "benchtop-power" in a handheld format. The unrivalled capabilities in combination with the spectroscopy software OPUS, enable the use for advanced applications.
With most selective information to be stored in comprehensive databases, Raman spectroscopy is ideally suited for the identification of unknown substances. Especially, the ability to measure materials through transparent packaging gives additional value for the contactless identification of possible harmful substances. One of the most common application is the identification of narcotics or other dangerous goods in the field of forensics.
SSETM - Patented Fluorescence Mitigation
In many cases raw material verification by Raman spectroscopy is prevented due to fluorescence. BRAVO uses SSETM (Sequentially Shifted Excitation) a patented fluorescence mitigation that enables to measure a much wider range of raw materials with handheld Raman systems than ever before.
Duo LASERTM Excitation
The Duo LASERTM excitation provides highest sensitivity across the entire spectral range and hence guarantees for maximum unambiguous verification.
IntelliTipTM - Automated Measuring Tip Recognition
Whether you choose a tip for measuring samples in vials or through bags IntelliTipTM for BRAVO ensures this information to be stored in the records. There is no room for mistakes, IntellitipTM guarantees that if defined for a raw material BRAVO will advise which tip has to be used.
Intuitive and Guided Touch Screen Operation
Right from the login the operator is guided through an utmost intuitive workflow by simply touching icons. At each step available options are shown and results are clearly visible and presented self-explaining on the graphical user interface. On demand further information can be derived by various analysis tools.
Automated Batch Scan Reporting
The automated batch scan mode of BRAVO enables to analyze the same raw material provided in a larger number of lots while requiring a minimum of user adjustments. In particular it enables to easily switch between batch scans of different raw materials.
Inbuilt Wavenumber Calibration
The automated wavenumber calibration for BRAVO ensures highly reproducible measurements in combination with unmatched wavenumber accuracy for dispersive instrumentation which is crucial for raw material identification in validated environments.
Material, Method and Library Setup
Spectra of a single raw material present in e.g. various packaging can be stored in one comprehensive method separately. All methods are stored within a library that can be checked for consistency and signed. Note, that building a library is no time-consuming process. The acquisition time of spectra for a material to be stored in a library is identical to the one of verification in standard measurement mode.
Wireless Data Exchange
Data such as libraries and results can be transferred fast and reliable between the BRAVO and a PC using the integrated WLAN device. The WLAN configuration is easy to set up within the BRAVO graphical user interface network menu and can also be switched off if demanded.
The optional docking station allows charging the BRAVO and provides storage capabilities for the daily check sample (polystyrene) and one measuring tip. Also data transfer is possible between the BRAVO and a PC in case of wireless connectivity is switched off.
