N.B. The near infrared region contains information that relates to the structure of the molecules that compose the material. Each molecule absorbs light in a characteristic pattern in the near-infrared region. The pattern depends on the vibrations that the light excites in the molecule.
Description Portable device for rapid raw materials and finished products identification . The device provides a NIR spectrum representative of the molecular composition of the material. This spectrum is then compared with a database of thousands representative spectra. The device presents the best matches of the different constituents. The NIR analyzer allows inspection through closed polyethylene liners, it also allows to identify API as well as excipients and other substance contained in the product analyzed (binders, colorants etc..).
 
Strengths Rapid;
Non-destructive;
Non-intrusive (can be done through primary pack);
Objective analysis of the product (contents analysis);
Measurement of several constituents simultaneously;
Portable;
Relatively easy to use;
 
Limitations Requires specific equipment: the device and some training for the person who is manipulating the device;
Cost;
Reference spectra needed;
