Webinar: Production efficiency and cost savings for pharma

Webinar description: Reducing costs and improving efficiency have always been a goal, but these needs are increasingly critical for pharmaceutical companies in a pandemic era. Near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy is a non-destructive analytical tool that provides solutions from drug development to the QA/QC lab, and in at-line, on-line, or continuous manufacturing processes. Its potential in the pharmaceutical manufacturing value chain is still expanding. 

Webinar: Ensuring integrity of drug formulation from development to QC

Webinar description: After a small molecule has been identified as a viable drug candidate, substantial testing is required to assure that chemical and structural integrity are preserved throughout the drug development process to maintain its functionality. To keep a balance between quality and manufacturability, time-consuming and labor-intensive testing and analysis are required to demonstrate that chemical integrity is intact. Among the techniques used to study changes in chemical integrity are infrared and Raman spectroscopy.
