Using A Multi-Wavelength Confocal Raman Microscope For Non-destructive Pharmaceutical Ingredient Analysis

The characterization of the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) and its distribution and physical properties in commercial medicine is necessary in drug research and development process in the pharmaceutical industry. Raman spectroscopy is gaining popularity due to its advantages as nondestructive, non-invasive, fast spectrum acquisition, and high reproducibility. BaySpec’s dispersive 1064 nm Raman spectrometers offer users a solution that combines the speed, sensitivity, and rugged design of traditional dispersive Raman instruments with the fluorescence avoidance of traditional FT-Raman instruments. This application note presents the results of a multi-wavelength confocal Raman microscope for non-destructive pharmaceutical ingredient analysis. Download the full paper for more information.
