Applying Raman Spectroscopy in the Pharmaceutical Industry

September 15, 2016

Raman spectroscopy is a spectroscopic technique used to observe vibrational, rotational, and other low-frequency modes within a sample. Raman spectroscopy is commonly used to identify and quantitate the molecules within a chemical sample. The technique involves shining a laser on a sample and detecting and analyzing the scattered light. The advantages to this type of spectroscopy are its high chemical specificity, sampling versatility, relatively low maintenance, minimal sample preparation, fast and simple routine analysis, and the ability to transfer methods from instrument to instrument in a simple way.
