FT-NIR spectroscopy via fiber optic probes is rapidly becoming a standard method of accomplishing this crucial material validation, providing unprecedented speed and flexibility for identification of both solid materials and liquids. MPA and MATRIX-F FT-NIR spectrometers can be equipped with fiber optic probes for direct analysis of raw materials in their containers. Complete identification software guides the user through the library creation process and provides single click identification even at the loading dock. The MATRIX-F system comes with a NEMA rated enclosure enabling it to withstand the toughest plant environments.
Incoming goods inspection and quality control using Mid-IR spectroscopy are mainly performed using the so-called ATR (Attenuated Total Reflection) technique. It allows measuring IR spectra of almost all types of liquid, solid and paste-like samples within some seconds. For identity control the sample spectrum is compared against the spectrum of a reference substance.
The growing demand for portable Raman systems for material verification (BRAVO) is constituted in the vast capabilities of this spectroscopic technique. Bruker developed the BRAVO to overcome the limitations of handheld Raman spectroscopy like fluorescence or safety issues. Operated by intuitive actions on a touch screen display measurements are performed fully automated by simply touching icons. As a class 1M laser product, BRAVO combines maximum user safety with an utmost ease of use, of course fully compliant to regulations like CFR 21 Part 11. BRAVO is the lab in your hands for material verification in the pharmaceutical industry.
