This online calculator can check if a word/phrase is an isogram. For those who curious what an isogram is, here is some information from wikipedia:

An isogram (also known as a "nonpattern word") is a logological term for a word or phrase without a repeating letter. Some also use it to mean a word or phrase in which each letter appears the same number of times, not necessarily just once.

Isograms can be useful as keys in ciphers since isogram sequences of the same length make for a simple one-to-one mapping between the symbols. Ten-letter isograms like PATHFINDER, DUMBWAITER, and BLACKHORSE are commonly used by salespeople of products where the retail price is typically negotiated, such as used cars, jewelry, or antiques. For example, PATHFINDER cipher, P represents 1, A represents 2, and so on. The price tag for an item selling for $1200 may also bear the cryptic letters FRR, written on the back or bottom of the tag. A salesperson familiar with the PATHFINDER cipher will know that the original cost of the item was$500 so that if the price is negotiated, he will not accidentally eliminate all of the 240% margin in the \$1200 price shown to prospective buyers. A twelve-letter cipher can be used to indicate months of the year. Isograms are useful in the game of Hangman and could make a challenging puzzle on the game show Wheel of Fortune.
