Fast Quality Evaluation of Bulk Polymers and Products Using FT-NIR Spectroscopy

September 01, 2011

FT-NIR spectroscopy for the quantitative determination of key physical parameters in bulk polymers and products, including density and melt index (MI). These measurements can often be made with little or no sample preparation.

Analysis of Drug Eluting Stent Coating Solutions Using FT-NIR Spectroscopy

Application Notebook

A drug-eluting stent (DES) is an expandable metal alloy framework placed into narrowed coronary arteries that slowly releases a drug coating to treat atherosclerosis. Production of DES is a labor-intensive batch process that requires very tight control. Fourier Transform Near-InfraRed spectroscopy (FT-NIR) is an efficient technique to perform accurate quantification of the different components in DES coating solutions.
