The Dietary Supplement cGMPs require 100% identity testing on incoming raw materials. With no sample preparation, easy user interface and results in seconds, routine operators are able to rapidly pass/fail incoming raw materials, drum by drum if desired, with FT-NIR Spectrometers like MPA II or TANGO. Spectral data is archived, building a detailed history of lot-to-lot variation by supplier, supporting supplier qualification programs as well as improving process efficiency through tighter control of input.
FT-NIR methods are based on chemometric analysis of the spectra of reference standards and traceably tested lots that define mathematical pass/fail criteria, eliminating operator interpretation and making it suitable to screen for economically motivated adulteration (EMA) and subpar quality.
Quality testing from input to output ensures safe supplements, efficient supply chain management and optimized processing. Raw Material suppliers also rely on FT-NIR to strengthen their relationships with their clients and to protect the integrity of their deliveries.
