Pharmaceutical manufacturers and regulatory agencies can now enhance the performance of the Thermo Scientific TruScan RM analyzer by downloading the newest software update. In addition to improved speed, Thermo Fisher Scientific designed the software update to enable users to more effectively develop and validate robust methods for pharmaceutical manufacturing and counterfeit screening.

This latest software version also includes feature enhancements for compliance with current good manufacturing practices (cGMP). The TruScan RM is one of the world’s most widely-used handheld Raman analyzers for the chemical composition of pharmaceutical raw materials and finished products.

“The ability to quickly and accurately analyze pharmaceutical raw materials and finished products greatly increases a pharmaceutical company’s productivity,” said Bob Brush, business development manager, portable analytical instruments at Thermo Fisher Scientific. “This software update also makes counterfeit drug screening easier, enabling users to more effectively analyze samples for suspect medicines, reinforcing our commitment to helping identify and intercept counterfeit pharmaceuticals worldwide.”

The TruScan RM 2.5 software update includes the following enhancements from the previous version:

  • Improved data collection for more robust methods;
  • New features for GMP compliance;
  • Improved performance over previous software versions;
  • Rapid data import/export capability;
  • Optional “expert mode” to further analyze spectroscopic data.

TruScan RM weighs less than a kilogram, is designed to be easy to use and to offer clear pass/fail results, making Raman analysis more widely accessible.

Thermo Scientific is one of the premier brands of Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. More information on Thermo Scientific TruScan RM 2.5 can be found by visiting
