Rapid QC Tablet Testing with Transmission Raman Spectroscopy

The Agilent TRS100 Raman system is ideal for fast assay of tablets, capsules, and other dosage forms. Transmission Raman technology from Agilent enables simple method-development and deployment in QC applications. It is easy to implement in analytical laboratories and production areas, and has regulatory approvals for content uniformity (CU), assay, and identification (ID) applications. This online seminar provides a comprehensive introduction to the Transmission Raman technology and the Agilent TRS100 Raman system in the pharmaceutical quality-control applications.
