New Technique for Fast Low-Level Polymorph API Quantification using Non-Destructive Transmission Raman Spectroscopy

A new technique for measuring low-levels of crystalline polymorphic materials offers many advantages over industry standard techniques. Two recent papers describe the use of Cobalt’s TRS100™ instrument for fast, low level quantification of API polymorphs (and excipients) in tablets. The latest paper shows sub-second measurements of intact tablets, which contrasts with the hours required using competing X-ray or NMR techniques. This makes transmission Raman spectroscopy (TRS) a suitable technology for both formulation development and final dosage form testing in pharmaceutical ...
