Thermo Scientific TruScan is a rugged, handheld system for rapid material verification. On-the-spot results are delivered in seconds with nondestructive, point-and-shoot sampling through sealed packaging. TruScan reduces the need for quarantine areas and staging of raw materials, while minimizing risk of exposure and contamination. Quickly validated and easily operated, TruScan was designed for use in GLP and cGMP environments and is an approved technology for USP ID testing.

With TruScan, users are up and running in a matter of days or even hours, unlike other spectroscopic technologies which can take a significant time investment. Due to Raman's molecular selectivity and TruScan's intuitive user interface, method creation is typically completed in a few simple steps. Method creation requires interaction on the instrument interface and through the web based administrative tool.
