Near-infrared spectroscopy in pharmaceutical analysis

Good vibrations - von Dr Alfred Steinbach, Staphanie Kappes

Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) is based on the absorption of ­radiation by matter. Not only does the versatile technique allow ­­the parallel identification of substances (active agents, excipients, ­contaminants), it is also suited to monitor processes such as blending, granulation, and drying.
