  • Overview

    Recent advances in handheld Raman spectroscopy enable both higher sensitivity qualitative analysis and quantification of finished products. New methods remove the requirement for wet-chemical methods that require significant time and resources to use, such as liquid chromatography. Applications such as counterfeit identification and quantification are now possible with a handheld instrument which can be conveniently used outside the laboratory.

    With Raman spectroscopy it is possible to differentiate between authentic, counterfeit, and reverse-engineered pharmaceuticals and quantify solid dosage forms. In this informational webinar, Dr. Stephen W. Hoag of the University of Maryland School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, will discuss examples of where these new techniques have been applied.

    There will be time at the end of the webinar for a Q&A session with the presenter and Dr. Adam J. Hopkins, Spectroscopy Product Manager at Metrohm USA to address your questions and discuss how method-driven Raman can streamline quality control measurements.
