Pharmaceutical Surveillance with Multiple Distributed Portable Raman Spectrometers
Globalization of the pharmaceutical supply chain appears to be increasing the risk that pharmaceutical consumers will be exposed to drug products that have been adulterated. Traditional surveillance testing by collecting samples and sending them to labs for analysis is inefficient and time consuming. In this webcast, John Kauffman from the FDA will discuss this issue and show examples of how he was able to use B&W Tek portable Raman spectrometers to support field testing of pharmaceutical materials. He will also discuss methods developed on these instruments and how calibration models are used to distribute the methods to the instrument.
