Workshop: A Study in the Application of Vibrational Spectroscopy to Pharmaceutical Product Analysis

Oct. 23, 2014

November 17, 2014 – 9:00 am -4:00 pm
Somerset, NJ

Bruker is pleased to present a free, two-part workshop on applying Infrared and Raman spectroscopy to the Analysis of Pharmaceutical Products. The first part, occuring in the morning will be focused on analytical applications and the afternoon session will be foscused on industrial applications.

Infrared and Raman Microspectroscopy in the Pharmaceutical World
Morning session presented by Thomas J Tague Jr, Ph.D.

Mid-IR spectroscopy is the best analytical tool for identifying unknown compounds and single point infrared microscopy can be rapidly employed for the identification of unknown contaminants as well as the analysis of competitor products. This is true because each molecule has its own “fingerprint” signature in the middle infrared region of the spectrum. Contaminants as small as a few microns can be readily characterized visually providing the physical characterization of the object of interest followed by infrared microanalysis.

A few of the topics to be discussed is this session

• Tablet analysis
• Tissue analysis
• Polymorphic analysis
• Confocal depth profiling

Overview of Typical FT-NIR Applications for QC and PAT Purposes
Afternoon session presented by Yan Wang, Ph.D.

The current presentation is focused on the latest development of FT-Near IR instruments, with updated info on the recent progress on instrument innovation and new products.

A few of the topics to be discussed:

• Conformity test of samples
• Quantization of key attributes of samples
• Quant calibration models

Lunch will be provided for all attendees.Participants are encouraged to bring samples for both workshops during the hands-on sessions.
