New TRS Paper Describes Fast Non-Destructive Detection of Low Level Crystalline Forms

A new paper published in American Pharmaceutical Review describes transmission Raman spectroscopy (TRS) as a potential method to detect and quantify the crystalline form of an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) among the bulk of an amorphous solid dispersion. The paper illustrates that TRS has better sensitivity compared to traditional methods such as XRPD and comparable sensitivity to solid-state NMR (ssNMR). However, TRS has added benefits, including faster acquisition time. TRS is an alternative to HPLC for polymorph quantification and tablet & capsule content uniformity testi...
