WEBINAR: The Use of Raman Spectroscopy in the Pharmaceutical Industry from Discovery to the Warehouse

VERTEX_FM_img1Duration: 1 hour

Presenter:
Thomas J. Tague Jr., Ph.D.
Applications Manager

Bruker Optics, Inc. 

Raman spectroscopy has been utilized in the pharmaceutical community for many years. There are areas of analysis where Raman is in principle the best technique, but many products contain chemicals that exhibit fluorescence precluding its application. For example, Raman should work best for raw material identification, polymorphic studies, high throughput screening, and many others. A new hand-held Raman spectrometer has been developed enabling users to analyze samples that were previously difficult-to-impossible to analyze, utilizing new patented fluorescence mitigation methods. The new Raman spectrometer also has a very wide spectra range and high spectral quality thereby optimizing the analysis and resulting in the virtual elimination of false positive/false negative test results for raw material identification.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • The benefits of Raman spectroscopy over traditional techniques
  • Sequentially Shifted Excitation Raman Spectroscopy for fluorescence mitigation
  • Use of Raman for high throughput screening
  • Important considerations in choosing Raman

There are many attributes of drug tablets that are important for delivery and efficacy. Spectroscopy can be an important tool in determining content uniformity and distribution of the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) as well as detecting counterfeits, assessing production, and implementing a real-time release (RTR) strategy, and ensuring safe delivery. In this webinar, we will discuss the role of F-TIR, FT-NIR and Raman spectroscopy in the characterization of solid dosage forms, including:.

  • API distribution by Chemical Imaging
  • Content Uniformity testing
  • Stability monitoring
  • Online Content Uniformity for real-time release
  • Counterfeit detection

WEBINAR: Benefits of Implementing PAT at Critical Stages of Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

Real Time Release testing during pharmaceutical manufacturing can realize significant benefits in terms of cost, testing times, quality and inventory reduction. FT-NIR has been implemented as part of a process measurement and risk based strategy to enable rapid analysis and decision making in the following areas:

  • Raw Material Verification
  • Granulation & Drying
  • Content Uniformity of solid dosage cores

This webinar will show real world examples as case studies in all these areas and explain what is involved in developing qualitative and quantitative methods in this regulated environment.
