A wide range of infrared and Raman spectroscopy applications are used in the pharmaceutical industry. To meet regulatory requirements in the pharmaceutical industry, Bruker Optics provides validated systems that can be used in accordance with cGMP / GMP standards and pharmacopoeias (PhEur, USP, etc.) and are simultaneously controlled by 21 CFR Part 11 compliant software.
Bruker has in its portfolio a complete range of devices for research in the field of pharmacy.
Typical applications of infrared and Raman microscopy are the analysis of particles, defects, or the analysis of inhomogeneities. Another typical application of microscopy is the investigation of polymorphism of active drug ingredients (APIs) in solid form and their distribution in space.
For spectroscopy, the use of polymorph monitoring, control of chemistry of substances, identification and others is typical.
Example of the use of Raman microscopy for chemical mapping of tablets:
Use of FTIR-QCL technology for study of API distribution:
