See-Through Measurements of Illicit Substances in Commercial Containers with the TacticID®-1064 ST

February 01, 2021

The TacticID-1064 ST has dedicated software and hardware designed to measure materials through both transparent and opaque containers. These through-barrier measurements remove the need for active sampling of potentially dangerous compounds such as fentanyl, leading to safer operations and reduced wait time for clear results. The 1064 nm laser is also an advantage for analyzing fluorescent or impure material. A Raman system with a 785 or 830 nm laser may generate fluorescence from these samples, which can overwhelm the Raman signal and make identification impossible. In this application note, we explore some of the capabilities of the TacticID-1064 ST.

QTRam for Content Uniformity Analysis of Low-Dose Pharmaceutical Tablets

February 01, 2020

Compressed tablet is the most common form of orally administered drug. The United States Pharmacopeia (USP) chapter requires that dosage uniformity of such products containing less than 25 mg or less than 25% active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) by weight must be analyzed for content uniformity, which is based on the assay of each API in a number of individual dosage units.
