How to Verify Incoming Raw Materials Using FT-NIR Spectroscopy: Webinar

Live Webinar: January 23, 2019

11:00 am PT/2:00 pm ET

Galaxy Scientific is partnering with Quantum Analytics for a live webinar on the topic of using FT-NIR spectroscopy for raw material identification through packaging.

When raw materials are purchased, it is critically important to verify that the correct substances have been received for quality, regulatory, and economic reasons. Often the incoming materials need to be opened, sent to a lab, and tested while inventory waits to be cleared for use.

Near Infrared spectroscopy offers a simple and reliable way of verifying the content and quality of incoming materials. This helps streamline existing processes or set the foundation of new incoming quality initiatives.

Recently, innovations in near-infrared processing algorithms have mitigated the need to open incoming material bags, allowing FT-NIR to scan materials through the packaging.

Our partner, Galaxy Scientific will demonstrate the usefulness of FT-NIR spectroscopy for basic incoming material verification and show the new ability to sample through plastic and paper packaging.

By attending our webinar, you will learn:

  • Basic use of FT-NIR spectroscopy to verify incoming raw materials
  • Qualitative and quantitative algorithms used in material identification
  • Advanced methods used to scan through plastic and paper bags without opening them

This webinar is ideal for:

  • Pharmaceutical Operations Managers
  • Quality Control Managers and Technicians
  • R&D Manager at food and pharmaceutical companies
  • Plant Managers and Supervisors
  • Laboratory Technicians and Operators

FT-NIR Webinar: Analysis of Edible Oils Using Spectroscopy

Once again, Galaxy Scientific is please to announce that we will be partnering with Quantum Analytics to present a live webinar discussing the benefits of FT-NIR analysis for edible oils.

Fats and edible oils are recognized as essential nutrients in human diets and are presented in varying amounts in many foods. They not only provide the human body with a concentrated source of energy, but also supply essential fatty acids that are precursors for important hormones.

The benefits of FT-NIR spectroscopic analysis of fats and edible oils include:

  • Real-time analysis; generally less than 10 seconds measurement time
  • Ability to analyze multiple parameters with a single measurement
  • Elimination of sample preparation time with non-destructive sampling
  • Cost effective solution
  • Safe-to-use method requiring no training for the tester

This live webinar will explore the advantages of FT-NIR for edible oil analysis:

  1. Real-time results for iodine value (IV)
  2. Peroxide value (PV)
  3. Free fatty acids (FFA)
  4. FT-NIR as a proven tool for detecting oil adulteration
