Introducing the new portable XRF Analyzer for identity testing of pharmaceutical ionic salts


Event overview

This webcast explores the use of a portable x-ray fluorescence (XRF) instrument, the Thermo Scientific™ IonicX™, and explains how it can identify ionic salts in seconds and replace traditional time-consuming and resource-intensive wet chemistry and benchtop methods.

In pharmaceutical manufacturing, handheld Raman and near-infrared spectroscopy (NIR) analyzers are widely accepted for material verification of excipients and APIs. Complementary to the use of these portable instruments for raw material ID is the new IonicX portable XRF analyzer for identity testing of pharmaceutical ionic salts. Built for biopharmaceutical manufacturing, IonicX is 21 CFR Part 11 compliant and employs a patented algorithm C-value that allows ionic salts to be identified in seconds using portable x-ray fluorescence.
