In this one hour instructional webinar, we discuss how handheld Raman is being used to streamline the pharmaceutical manufacturing process and reduce pharmaceutical product recalls and plant shutdowns. We provide a brief overview of typical incoming raw material inspection processes and discuss how handheld Raman increases productivity and satisfies stringent cGMP requirements. We also discuss how recent developments in handheld Raman technology will continue to enable wider and faster deployment to achieve the goal of 100% testing of raw materials. Lastly, we discuss the importance of a simplified user interface for non-technical users and how advances in technology have addressed this need.
