Multi-Wavelength Confocal Raman Microscope for Non-Destructive Pharmaceutical Ingredient Analysis

April 01, 2016

The characterization of the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) and its distribution and physical properties in commercial medicine is necessary in drug research and development process in the pharmaceutical industry. Among various analytical techniques employed for this purpose, Raman spectroscopy is gaining more popularity due to its advantages as non-destructive, non-invasive, fast spectrum acquisition in seconds, high reproducibility, and so on.
