Application Note: Probabilistic Approach for Material Verification and Identification in Pharmaceutical Applications
8 March 2018

Spectroscopic material verification is a critically important analytical application within the pharmaceutical industry because of the adoption of standards such as the Pharmaceutical Inspection Co-operation Scheme (PIC/S), Annex 8. PIC/S Annex 8 requires that individual samples be taken from all incoming containers and an identity test be performed on each sample. Individual container identity testing puts drastically higher demands on expert analysts’ time. TruScan’s revolutionary capabilities enable nonexperts, such as receiving personnel at the loading dock, to positively verify the identity of materials at the point of receipt, increasing an organization’s throughput and cycle time. TruScan is the first device of its kind to employ embedded uncertainty tracking and estimation.
