Analytical tasks in the pharmaceutical industry range from drug discovery to production and quality control for consumer product. This entire process is subject to a variety of laws and regulations and requires careful examination at every step. The aim of this webinar is to show how Raman microscopy and SEM-EDS, as complementary measuring techniques, can contribute at every stage of pharmaceutical development to identify and characterise materials of interest. Raman spectroscopy is a well-established non-destructive analytical method for identifying the unique chemical composition of sample components. In addition to the standard chemical identification and distribution analysis delivered by SEM-EDS, users can now take advantage of Live Chemical Imaging capability afforded by current large area EDS detectors.
Furthermore, Raman imaging can be integrated within the vacuum chamber of scanning electron microscopes, combining the highest-resolution structural characterisation with the capability of elemental analysis through EDS.
This correlative approach is used to identify and characterise at every stage of pharmaceutical production, including:
In addition to obtaining reliable results, both techniques are increasingly being incorporated into SOPs within regulated environments.
