Process Analytical Technologies are enablers for the Pharma 4.0 production. With the implementation of in-process-controls, process capabilities become transparent and allow quality improvements, higher efficiencies and a reduction of manufacturing costs.
Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) is an economic and cost effective method of analysis. It is used for the identification or quantity analysis of lyophilizates, powders, granules, etc. The NIRS covers a very wide range of applications in pharmaceutical, food and beverage industry. NIR measurements can be performed off-line, or at-line, or in-line for process analytical technology (PAT).
