NIR In-Depth Focus 2019
This near-infrared spectroscopy In-Depth Focus looks at online drying process control of pharmaceutical intermediates and how NIR has moved on from the lab.
Included in this issue:
- Online drying process control of pharmaceutical intermediates using near-infrared spectroscopy in a bypass system
Strong regimentation and economic interests demand the development and implementation of new techniques for process control and analysis in the pharmaceutical industry. The extensive analysis of all deployed materials, intermediates and products leads to a higher degree of process stability and can contribute to a faster compensation for deviations, especially at highly critical production steps.
- Near-infrared spectroscopy has grown up and moved from the lab to its own place
For decades, near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy has been an invaluable tool within the laboratory. The development of portable instruments, or ones used in a specific vicinity (a silo for grain, a tablet press for pharmaceuticals) has seen little change in the basic theory. However, the hardware and software has changed dramatically.
