Maximizing the Power of Spectroscopy in Your Regulated Analytical Laboratory
Pixabay/Gerd Altmann: Maximizing the Power of Spectroscopy in Your Regulated Analytical Laboratory
Two of the biggest challenges analysts face in the analytical lab are verifying product quality and identifying unknown contaminants. It is also common to look to reverse engineer competitor products. Infrared and Raman spectroscopies are ideal tools for these analyses, as they are non-destructive and non-invasive methods. FTIR and Raman are also very highly specific, as each molecule has its own corresponding fingerprint in the region of the electromagnetic spectrum where the analyses are performed. These analyses can also be conducted most readily even in the most stringent regulatory environment. Tiered user access and a locked data pool are only a few of the features of a fully integrated and compliant platform meeting FDA and other regulatory requirements.
During this webinar, we’ll cover the theory of FTIR and Raman spectroscopies and why they work so well for even the most challenging samples. The management of regulatory requirements in the modern lab will also be discussed.
Key Webinar Take-Aways:
- IR and Raman offer quick and reliable identification of unknown compounds.
- Regulatory requirements are easy managed with Bruker hardware and software platform.
- Quality assurance of product and raw materials is reliably performed with Raman and IR.
