Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy is a powerful technique for material checking at various stages of the manufacturing process, but it is particularly useful at identifying and authenticating the quality of raw materials. Raw materials can come in many different physical states, including solids, liquids and gels, and therefore, testing requires a versatile instrument that can keep pace with the demands of manufacturing.
Raw material identification is typically performed by comparing the new material against an orthogonally validated reference material. However, a 1-to-1 comparison is not always sufficient to discriminate between closely related materials, and more advanced strategies are needed to improve both sensitivity and specificity.
In this presentation, we will discuss the principles behind Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and how to build robust methods for raw material identification of simple and complex substances. The infrared spectroscopy solution is simple to implement, easy to use and powerful enough to keep up with changing regulatory environments and the dynamic world of raw-material sourcing.In this presentation, you will learn:
Doug Townsend is an infrared field applications scientist at PerkinElmer, who partners with pharmaceutical and nutraceutical manufacturers to develop and implement strategies for raw material testing, using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. Prior to joining PerkinElmer, Doug worked as an associate scientist atAbbieBiotherapeutics, where he gained GLP and GMP experience. Doug studied chemistry at Northeastern University in Boston, where he researched and published several articles on the use of FTIR microscopy, coupled with machine learning for the diagnosis of cancer. He is an enthusiastic advocate for near infrared spectroscopy and is passionate about helping companies achieve GMP compliance.
