Pharma and biopharma manufacturing are under constant pressure to improve efficiency, increase productivity and reduce costs while still maintaining product quality.

Molecular spectroscopy (Fourier transform infrared [FTIR], near-infrared [NIR] and Raman) are versatile, non-destructive and green techniques that enable rapid analysis of raw materials, allowing for processes to be monitored and final products analyzed with ease. Implementation of these techniques in manufacturing will ensure rapid return on investment and allow drug manufacturers (pharma, biopharma, parenteral, injectables) to easily implement quality-by-design (QbD) principles into routine practice.

Key learning objectives:

  • Understand the differences between FTIR, NIR and Raman spectroscopy
  • How spectroscopy is applied in quality control labs
  • Learn from real examples of spectroscopy techniques in pharmaceutical workflows (Raw materials analysis, process analytical technology [PAT], finished product testing, contaminant/foreign particle testing)
  • Hear how implementation of these techniques increased efficiency and minimized costs
  • Ask our expert speakers questions and benefit from their knowledge and guidance.
