Rapid infrared microscopy in pharmaceutical product development, quality control and biologics formulation
Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) microscopy provides critical data that pharmaceutical companies use to improve time-tomarket and reduce product failures. Formulation scientists may want to identify components in a solid dosage form for reverse engineering or ascertain the distribution of API, excipients or polymorphic forms of API in their product. Pharmaceutical QC laboratories need to verify composition prior to release of drug batches, and they must understand batch-to-batch variation of solid dosage forms. Pharmaceutical labs may need to identify foreign particulates in a biologic/parenteral drug or assess the make-up of a tablet or transdermal patch. Many organizations use IR microscopy for the detection and analysis of counterfeit pharmaceuticals
The Thermo Scientific™ Nicolet™ RaptIR™ FTIR Microscope provides the required capabilities and outstanding performance in both visual and IR operations, while enabling novice and expert users to obtain useful results.
