An Evaluation of Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Microscopy: Packaging, Integrity, Contamination, and Stability (PICS) Analysis of Solid Formulations in the Pharmaceutical Industry


In this era of shrinking budgets, scientists are continually searching for instrumentation that is capable of ‘multi-tasking’. FTIR microscopy fits this niche by performing routine analysis on tablets, caplets, and packaging materials in the pharmaceutical industry. In this paper by Shimadzu Scientific Instruments, the usefulness of FTIR microscopy to a pharmaceutical scientist is evaluated.
