FACSS in conjunction with JPAG, RSC MSG & the IRDG present a Joint Symposium
on “Advances in Raman Spectroscopy in Pharmaceutical Analysis” on 17 May 2012: London, UK.
Registration is now open!
Jointly organised with: Federation of Analytical Chemistry and Spectroscopy Societies (FACSS), the Joint Pharmaceutical Analysis Group (JPAG), the Royal Society of Chemistry Molecular Spectroscopy Group (MSG) and the Infrared & Raman Discussion Group (IRDG).
Raman spectroscopy has found favor in pharmaceutical analysis because it is nondestructive, requires minimal sample preparation, and gives clear spectra for identification. This 1-day symposium demonstrates a breadth of successful Raman applications spanning the R&D field, API development, scale-up, and manufacturing, as well as drug product formulation development, characterization, and product assay. Poster presentations, a student prize, and an exhibition of Raman instruments add to the value of the symposium.
Additional information about this symposium is available here.
This meeting represents one of the first “FACSS present” events. FACSS participation in this meeting is in support of several of the member organizations of FACSS and the charter of FACSS.
Programme topics include:
• The use of Raman in characterising amorphous and crystalline forms of APIs
• Moving PAT from laboratory to production and getting FDA approval
• Raman spectral imaging to characterise individual particles
• Removing the effects of packaging to identify raw materials with Spatially Offset Raman Spectroscopy [SORS]
• Reverse engineering studies with Raman imaging to defend patents
• Why transmission Raman spectroscopy is the future: case studies
• Comparison of NIR, Raman backscattering and transmission spectroscopy for the analysis of polymorphs
• Laboratory vs hand-held instruments: what you gain and what you lose
• Vendors’ showcase exhibition
