Since it was discovered in the 1920s, Raman spectroscopy has been used in pharmaceutical research as a non‐invasive way to provide chemical and structural information in situ, without any staining or complicated sample preparation. Nikki Withers spoke to Professor Kishan Dholakia to hear more about its use in industry and…

WITH THE RISE of metabolites/molecules production using complete living cells or their components (bacteria, enzymes, chloroplasts, etc), which is also termed bioprocessing, it has become increasingly important to control the different production steps and analyse the different biological materials.
Pharmaceutical and biotechnology manufacturers must ensure the quality of materials – from incoming raw material through finished product.
Microparticles can be found everywhere, from pigments in paint and titanium dioxide in sunscreen to microplastics in water.
Raman microscopy is well suited to pharmaceutical studies, including the analysis of drug delivery systems and their performance.
Over the last decade, Transmission Raman spectroscopy (TRS) has been increasingly implemented in pharmaceutical laboratories as a highspeed, accurate, quantitative analysis solution.
Barely larger than a smartphone, the Mira P is one of the fastest and most compact Raman spectrometers on the market. With the Mira P, you will get accurate results in just seconds.

This webinar describes how Raman microscopy can help solve some of the most vital and challenging questions that researchers face in 3D imaging and microparticle analyses of food, pharmaceuticals and microplastics, along with providing measurement examples from each field.
Zafar Iqbal sheds light on how Raman spectroscopy is used to detect and understand the amorphous phase in a range of solids, providing examples of his own laboratory applications.
The efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetic properties of a protein therapeutic substantially depend on the molecule having the right structure. This article reviews current methods used for obtaining higher order structure information of biotherapeutics.
Many researchers are keen to find analytical solutions that generate the chemical fingerprint of a sample at the molecular and cellular level. Overcoming these problems is made possible by label-free techniques such as Raman, SPRi or particle size analysis. This brief overview will identify the benefits of Raman spectroscopy.
High-resolution measurements of particles are of great interest in many fields of application. Combining confocal Raman microscopy with particle analysis tools makes it possible to find, classify and identify particles almost entirely automatically.
