Chief Spectroscopic Techniques Supported

Comprehensive spectral analysis and nondestructive imaging solution with high depth of penetration.

Markets Served

Utilizing the unique properties of the terahertz region (0.1–10.0 THz) of the electromagnetic spectrum, these systems perform nondestructive analysis of pharmaceuticals, chemicals, communications materials, and more, without requiring a specially constructed analysis environment. In addition to industrial applications, the TAS7500 series is also an optimal choice for terahertz-related research.

Major Products/Services

TAS7500IM THz Imaging System: Non-invasive imaging of the characteristics of the interiors and film coating of tablets.

TAS7500: THz spectroscopic and imaging analysis systems for measurement of pharmaceuticals in liquid, solid, or powder form. Ideally suited for pharmaceutical measurements including:

  • Tablet core density/porosity
  • Tablet coating thickness and spatial uniformity
  • Tablet coating density
  • Tablet coating-core interface strength
  • Crystallinity in drug substances and drug products


Advantest maintains eight R&D centers on three continents and has an annual R&D spend of over $300 million.
