Pharmaceutical Moisture Measurement

NDC PH710e pharmaceutical moisture gauges can be used as part of your PAT Process Analytical Technology strategy to provide real-time moisture measurements of the drying process within the fluid bed dryer prior to tableting. The gauge can measure either through a sight glass, if the formulation does not adhere to the window, or be used in combination with a proprietary fiber optic probe arrangement.

The PH710e pharmaceutical moisture analyzer is a powerful in-process alternative to off-line LOD (loss on drying) gravimetric testing and complements the other real-time outputs used to run a granulation suite by providing:

  • a robust real-time measurement of moisture
  • improved drying process visualization
  • full CIP capability and wash-in-place during production 

Achieving reliable on-line pharmaceutical  moisture measurement requires the fulfilment of two key criteria:

  • reliable and robust analyzer measurement technology
  • reliable and robust process interfacing to guarantee that the analyzer measures representative product

For at-lime sample measurements, the InfraLab NIR moisture analyzer is designed to complement rather than replace a compendial method. The InfraLab benchtop moisture analyzer provides fast access to reliable repeatable results thanks to a larger more representative sample size. Samples can be presented to the InfraLab in a choice of bowl sizes, or, by means of an adapter plate, in standard 90mm Petri dishes.

Taking only 5 seconds to complete each sample analysis, InfraLab can help users to control batches quickly and efficiently. InfraLab's passcode protected user interface provides secure access to reliable results.
