Revolutionising Raman with the transmission technique

Revolutionising Raman with the transmission technique

Issue 3 2015, Raman Spectroscopy / 3 July 2015 / Julien Villaumié and Hilary Jeffreys, Actavis

All regulatory agencies require that manufacturers accurately determine the amount of drug in a medicinal product so that the product can be deemed fit for patients. This forms part of batch release testing performed by Quality Control (QC) laboratories. The drug assay and/or content uniformity of the dosage units is typically performed by a wet chemistry technique that has not significantly changed in the industry for four decades. High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) is widely used by laboratories for that purpose, and automated sample preparation systems are available. But there are drawbacks to these methods. This article explores how Transmission Raman now has the potential to revolutionise the release testing of pharmaceutical product in a QC laboratory…

Multivariate Calibration Maintenance

The flexibility of regularisation processes for multivariate calibration maintenance

Issue 4 2014, PAT & QbD, Raman Spectroscopy / 5 September 2014 / Dr. John H. Kalivas, Editor for the Journal of Chemometrics and Applied Spectroscopy.

In the pharmaceutical industry, it is necessary to control, in a tight range, the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) content of products, e.g., tablets or other powder blends. Thus, the API content needs to be continuously monitored. Preferably, analysis for the API content should be in-line (on site) allowing rapid and efficient quality control. It is well documented that spectroscopic methods, such as near-infrared (NIR) and Raman, in conjunction with multivariate calibration processes, can meet these goals under controlled conditions…
