This webinar will discuss the growing interest in combining Raman spectroscopy to image-based particle analysis techniques, in order to provide fast, non-destructive chemical identification of the particles. Such particle characterization is currently being applied in a wide range of fields, including pharmaceuticals, geology and mining exploration, and environmental analysis. Introductory material will explain the power of Raman microscopy to identify molecular composition and crystalline phases (of both organic and inorganic materials).
This will be followed by real-life examples from within the pharmaceutical industry illustrating the power of particle-Raman characterization for contaminant analysis to supplement USP788/789 analysis in the identification of variety particulate in parenteral (i.e., injectable formulations), and analysis of two formulated particulate drug delivery systems with an assessment of the impact on dissolution.
