Webinar: Raman microscopy to support pharmaceutical challenges

The pharmaceutical product development process involves many different steps and needs in molecular characterization. Thus, understanding API crystal forms, controlling API and excipients interactions or process optimization needs techniques that are able to manage different forms of molecules with a minimal sample preparation. As a result, Raman microscopy is so becoming a standard technique in pharmaceutical laboratories.
During this webinar, we will present what Raman microscopy brings to pharmaceutical challenges, especially in formulation development and troubleshooting steps.

Multimodal spectroscopy techniques for nanostructured materials characterization

Application Note - Multimodal spectroscopy techniques for nanostructured materials characterization

In this article, we present the combination of Raman spectroscopy, Photoluminescence and SEM-CL techniques, where the instruments weren’t physically connected. Smart nanostructured materials require a comprehensive understanding of their morphology, elemental and chemical composition. nanoGPS Suite solution allows a colocalized combination of a variety of microscopy techniques, providing a full characterization of nanostructured materials and a precise superimposition of the results obtained.

Quality control of sugar content in beverages using Raman spectroscopy

Application Note - Quality control of sugar content in beverages using Raman spectroscopy

We all consume or have all consumed sugary drinks at least once. Sugar content of those drinks must be regulated. Also, to avoid those properties of sugar, it has been replaced by sweeteners. These have lower sweetness than natural sugars. Whether it is sugar or sweetener, their content just be controlled. Here, we demonstrate that Raman spectroscopy is one solution to identify and evaluate sugar/sweetener concentrations in a quality control process.

Quality control of hand sanitizer gels and 70% alcohol products using Raman spectroscopy

Application Note - Quality control of hand sanitizer gels and 70% alcohol products using Raman spectroscopy

Disinfecting your hands with hydroalcoholic gel has become a daily practice. In the meanwhile, 70° alcohol has been used for even longer to disinfect wounds. But, to remain efficient, the alcohol concentration of these products must not be below a defined threshold and must be controlled. This application note demonstrates how to evaluate alcohol concentrations in a quality control process with Raman.

Resolving micron-sized layers in multilayer films with Raman microscopy by cross-section analysis and confocal depth profiling

Application Note - Resolving micron-sized layers in multilayer films with Raman microscopy by cross-section analysis and confocal depth profiling

Multilayer polymer films, composed of different materials, are used in a variety of industrial applications. The analysis of these multilayers is important to support, especially for safety and performances control. Here, we use Raman microscopy by cross-section analysis and confocal depth profiling to investigate the chemical composition of two multilayers films.
