New analytical tools to expand analysis capabilities of incoming materials in warehouses

The introduction and use of handheld Raman in pharmaceutical warehouses has increased dramatically in the past decade. Today, Raman is a well-established technique with a broad installation base. Recently, a new chapter specifically on Raman has been added to or is in the works for all of the major pharmacopoeias, which reflects the acceptance of this technology in the industry. This webinar will present where handheld Raman is most commonly used, and where other techniques –Raman or LIBS- complement and improve upon analysis efforts in the warehouses and beyond.

This webinar will present the strengths of Raman handheld devices and will analyse the capabilities and purposes for such devices. We will then present the limitations of handheld Raman devices, such as packaging concerns, and how new techniques may help overcome such challenges to extend the analytical capabilities of materials identification in the warehouses.

Additionally, we will discuss the difficulties of substances that are not Raman active, such as monatomic salts (e.g. NaCl), and how new technologies such as LIBS complement Raman to further improve identification analysis efforts in the warehouse.

The introduction of a number of new spectroscopy tools (Raman or LIBS) expands the analytical capabilities in warehouse settings. The complementary capabilities of handheld Raman, portable Raman, and handheld LIBS allow companies to analyse the vast majority of products requiring analysis in the pharmaceutical market. Customers interested in reducing the laboratory’s load in routine identification analysis or interested in expanding their analytical capabilities in their warehouse will find this webinar of their interest.
