Application Note

FT-IR Imaging Capabilities in Pharmaceutical and Biopharmaceutical Segment for Impurity Characterization Studies


Mid-infrared (MIR) microscopy is a broadly employed chemical identification tool that is used to complement traditional light microscopy. In recent years we have seen an explosive growth in the applications of the FT-IR Imaging Microscope and the data resulting from these imaging systems. This application note demonstrates the imaging studies performed on pharmaceutical products for the detection of solid materials (foreign material) observed in Injectibles.
