Application Note

A Comparison of Two FT-NIR Sampling Techniques for SIMCA Classification of Spectroscopically Similar Pharmaceutical Raw Materials

NIR Spectroscopy is a useful technique for raw materials identification and verification, but the sophistication of the technique might differ based on the sample. If the materials to be identified are spectroscopically dissimilar, it is often only necessary to use a simple distance measure such as a spectral difference for identification. If the spectra are similar, on the other hand, it may be necessary to use more sophisticated techniques which take into consideration both the intra- and inter-material spectral variation for identification and classification. The SIMCA (Soft Independent Modelling of Class Analogy) algorithm, a Principal Component Analysis (PCA) method, provides such an example.

Discrimination of Herbal Lifestyle Products Using AssureID SIMCA and COMPARE Algorithms

Herbal lifestyle products are widely used as alternatives to medicines around the world, with as many as 80% of people using them as a primary source of healthcare in developing countries. These treatments are commonly regarded by scientific papers, and on some occasions the media, as being inferior to orthodox treatment. This is due to the variation between herbal formulations which will not be present in so called ‘single-chemical’ drugs. The reasons for the aforementioned variation involve several factors including storage, environmental conditions, handling and unintentional or intentional contamination (adulteration).

Identification of Counterfeit Phosphodiesterase Inhibitors using NIR Spectroscopy and Chemometrics

The exact number of counterfeit medicines produced/consumed each year is difficult to determine due to the usually illegitimate methods by which they are distributed. However, the scale of the problem can be represented by the fact that 20 million pills, bottles, and sachets of counterfeit medicines were seized in a five-month operation conducted by the International Criminal Police Organization in China and South-East Asia.

    Data Integrity – Spectrum 10 Enhanced Security (ES) Software for Infrared Spectroscopy

    The FDA defines data integrity as “completeness, consistency, and accuracy of data. Complete, consistent, and accurate data should be attributable, legible, contemporaneously recorded, original or a true copy, and accurate (ALCOA)”. ALCOA itself has evolved to ALCOA Plus, which incorporates two of the fundamental definition terms as stated by the FDA; complete, consistent, enduring, and available. Compliance with 21 CFR Part 11 is mandatory for pharmaceutical companies and their suppliers to sell products into the United States, and also applies to other related industries.

    PerkinElmer’s Spectrum™ 10 Enhanced Security (ES) software platform for infrared spectroscopy provides structural requirements and features to assist with the needs for ensuring data integrity and compliance. It affords the system owner the ability to comply with regulations and incorporate features into the validation plan to exhibit compliance. The purpose of this document is to demonstrate how Spectrum 10 ES meets the technical requirements for 21 CFR Part 11.
