Near Infrared Spectroscopy Applications in Pharmaceutical Analysis

When you require rapid, accurate measurement of pharmaceutical products, look no further than ASD’s complete line of Vis/NIR spectrometers.

  • Rapid measurement of samples—typically within a few seconds
  • Non-destructive measurement of samples at various points in the production process
  • Ability to measure multiple constituents simultaneously
  • Little or no sample preparation
  • Flexible configurations from an array of sampling accessories
  • Versatility of working in the plant or in the lab
  • Cost effective

Vis/NIR is a widely accepted technology for monitoring and measuring raw materials, product content in-process, and the constituents of finished products. Through every step of the operation, implementation of ASD instrumentation meets standard international Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) and can help ensure that your product components meet regulatory requirements. Our instrumentation has been effectively deployed in pharmaceutical processing and pharmaceutical inspection, including counterfeit detection.

The LabSpec® line of portable spectrometers allows you to measure materials where and whenever necessary, this eliminates the need to collect samples and transport them to the lab. The LabSpec laboratory instruments can be used in the warehouse for inspection of incoming raw materials or on the production floor to verify product compliance. For work in the lab, the LabSpec 4 Bench instrument provides rapid measurement of the highest accuracy. All ASD instruments have a wide spectral range of 350 to 2500 nm, which allows them to measure the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) as well as excipients such as binders and colorants simultaneously. This versatility ensures complete coverage of your product and makes ASD systems a cost-effective choice for pharmaceutical analysis, especially when compared with more limited, single-item measurement options. All ASD spectrometers are available with a wide array of sampling accessories, to customize the instruments to fit your needs.

ASD pharmaceutical measurement products come with the documentation to incorporate them into your facility, including IQ/OQ/PQ. To help you fully integrate the devices into your system, ASD offers installation and setup services for the LabSpec lab analyzers. We also offer ongoing service and maintenance plans to maximize the benefit of your investment.
