Near-infrared (NIR) assay and content uniformity of tablets


Near-infrared (NIR) analysis permits the rapid and reliable determination of the content uniformity of tablets in the process. The method fulfills the regulations of the Process Analytical Technology (PAT) initiative of the FDA. The results of this Application Note show that the work involved in the laboratories for HPLC analysis can be reduced considerably. In addition, NIR offers the possibility of introducing more real-time analysis into the process monitoring.
