Paper Abstract

Near Infrared Reflectance (NIR) spectroscopy has now been in use within Glaxo for over 5 years as a tool to provide rapid analysis. Analyses are sufficiently robust to be performed alongside the manufacturing process by non-technical staff. This paper describes the strategies employed within Claxo to provide both classification information and quantitative or semi-quantitative data relevant to manufacturing processes using a combination of chemometric techniques and NIR spectroscopy's sampling advantages.
