Ingredient Identification in the Nutraceutical Industry by Fourier Transform Near-infrared (FT-NIR) Spectroscopy

Speakers:  Gayle Kittelson, Quality Manager, Embria Health Sciences; Mark Terrell, Product Manager, NIR, Buchi Corporation

Wednesday, August 28, 2013, Registration information coming soon

Fourier transform near-infrared (FT-NIR) spectroscopy, in combination with multivariate data analysis, is a well proven and widely used technique in the pharmaceutical industry for the ingredient identification.  Identification provides a means of evaluating whether or not the test sample is a member of the population for which the calibration model was developed.  FT-NIR is a fast and nondestructive technique that provides both chemical and physical properties on virtually any matrix.  An introduction on the use of FT-NIR for sample identification in the Nutraceutical industry will be presented.
