Trustworthiness in data is critical for operations within the pharmaceutical and life sciences industries, whether it is for compliance, operational excellence, reporting or development. Hear the latest findings from OSIsoft’s research in our on-demand webinar.
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.
