AN 50777 - Dedicated Analytical Solutions for Tablets and Softgels, Transmission Analysis of Solid Dosage Pharmaceuticals


The majority of commercially available pharmaceutical formulations are tablets and capsules designed to be taken orally. Fourier transform near-infrared (FT-NIR) analysisis a powerful technique for measuring these materials. The advantages of using both the Softgel and StandardTablet detectors on the Nicolet™Antaris™FT-NIR Analyzerwill be discussed in this application note. Diffusereflectance and transmission spectra of tablets and softgel capsules will also be shown.
