The H2Optx Platerator interfaces with the mPAT LAB to enable fast, multi-axis Raman, UV and hi-res optical scans of complex powders, solids, and emulsions.

Large, statistically significant sample sizes, combined with the ability to identify component concentrations down to 1PPM, provide meaningful structural & chemical analysis for the Life Sciences & Fine Chemical industries.

  • Use Cases


  • Automated scan areas > 72mm x 108mm for complex powders & emulsions or entire tablet surfaces
  • Use with a standard 96-well plate format or with a custom H2Optx powder cassette in single or multi-well options
  • Safety lid, motion interlock and laser interlock ensures safe & reliable operation

Multiple Sampling Formats

H2Optx Powder & Emulsion Cassette Platerator 96-well plate
  • Accurately ID majority of culture media components
  • Identify variability between media lots
  • Identify differences in raw source materials
  • Detect impurities within raw materials
  • Detect trace materials within complex powders
  • Create particle size distribution maps to identify possible de-mixing effects
  • Incoming QC inspection
  • Archive samples for QA investigations

How it works

  1. The Platerator is mounted onto the mPAT LAB.
  2. Sample(s) is placed into either a 96-well plate or a Platerator sample Cassette.
  3. The 96-well plate or Cassette is placed into the Platerator.

  1. The operator then uses the MetaScan software to select the specific wells in the well-plate or the area of the Platerator Cassette to be scanned. Next, an automated scanning of the sample is completed.
  2. MetaAnalyzer is then used to provide a hi-res image and comprehensive chemical & structure analysis of the sample.
