App Note: Bruker Optik – TANDEM FT-NIR for on-line tablet characterisation

Whitepapers / 16 December 2013 / Bruker Optik

Pharmaceutical manufacturers are required to enhance their critical quality performances. This is being encouraged by the FDA, which is pushing towards using modern process analytical technology (PAT) to ensure the quality of the final product. A large number of applications in the Process Analytical Technology (PAT/QbD) initiative can be addressed using FT-NIR spectroscopy. For drug product sites for instance, NIR spectroscopy can be used at almost every step of tablet manufacture from raw material control over granulation and drying to content uniformity analysis of the dosage unit…
