Paper Abstract

Fourier transform infrared microscopy offers many unique advantages in studying pharmaceutical packaging materials and formulations because of its sensitivity and variety of measurement modes with precise control of the area to the analyzed. This report discusses the application of FTIR microscopy in studying commonly encountered pharmaceutical packaging components such as multi-layer laminate films, disposable syringes and rubber stoppers. The use of the instrument to study pharmaceutical formulation parameters such as polymorphism and component identification is also presented.
