Eine Ã¼bertragbare Bibliothek fÃ¼r die Identifikation von pharmazeutischen Aktivstoffen mittels Nah-Infrarot-Spektroskopie
In this study a method combining near-infrared spectroscopy (NIR) and the corresponding chemometric calibrations was developed for the non-invasive identification of 9 pharmaceutical active substances in sealed glass vials. Almost no sample preparation or cleaning operation is required apart from the filling of the substances into the vials. Measurements were performed directly through the bottom of the glass containers using a horizontal sample desk accessory on 3 similar Fourier-Transform (FT)-NIR spectrometers. This NIR-application can be transferred to any spectrometer of the same type.
