Harnessing Emerging Technologies to Obtain the Best Chemical Information from Pharmaceutical Products
Extraneous material, such as micro-particles, found in the manufacturing stream of biopharmaceuticals must be identified and the root cause must be determined to take corrective actions. Biopharmaceuticals differ significantly from conventional pharmaceutics in manufacturing and delivery. They are typically manufactured after molecular cloning by cell culture fermentation, purification by multiple chromatography and filtration steps, and formulated as injectable to bypass the digestive system. Different extraneous material may appear during the many steps of the manufacturing processes.
...
In this presentation, we will report a few archetypical incident investigations to demonstrate the challenges and the diversity of the manufacturing incidents and the capability and the flexibility of the combination of micro-spectroscopic techniques to the biopharmaceutical manufacturing industry.

Online, inline and in situ reaction monitoring - New NMR and IR tools to enhance process understanding

Presenters: Colin Barrow, Bruker Optics and Anna Codina, Ph.D. Bruker BioSpin

The great advantage of vibrational spectroscopy in the field of reaction monitoring is that it can be deployed to make in situ measurements in standard reactors and typically be used to define the reaction trajectories under realistic operational conditions in pilot or manufacturing sites.
NMR, on the other hand, is quantitative by nature, structurally rich and non-intrusive making the technique extremely useful to identify and characterize reaction intermediates, gain insights into the reaction mechanisms and determine kinetics.
Learn how NMR complements IR in the lab, enhancing process understanding and consequently the robustness and confidence of IR in situ process monitoring in the plants.

Nondestructive characterization of advanced polymeric materials using spectroscopy and atomic force microscopy
This joint webinar will focus on polymer materials characterization using the highly complementary techniques of Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) and vibrational (infrared and Raman) spectroscopy. Infrared and Raman spectroscopy are ideal tools for characterizing unknown materials. The high degree of specificity of spectroscopic analysis makes it ideal for reverse engineering, quality control, defect analysis, and other applications. Infrared and Raman microanalysis is conducted when samples or areas of interest are smaller than approximately the width of a single hair fiber. The spectroscopic microanalysis of polymer based products will be discussed with emphasis on what level of detection can be achieved as well as what is entailed in performing the analysis. Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) is a powerful technique for mapping topography with resolution down to the atomic level. PeakForce Tapping expands upon traditional AFM by making it radically easier to use while retaining high quality topographic imaging. With PeakForce QNM, PeakForce TUNA and PeakForce KPFM, PeakForce Tapping also enables quantitative nanoscale maps of mechanical and electrical sample properties, at similar resolution to the topographic maps. These capabilities have made PeakFoce Tapping the fastest growing new AFM mode producing hundreds of new publications last year alone. In this webinar we will review a selection of publications highlighting new information obtained by PeakForce Tapping on polymer materials in fields ranging from batteries to organic photovoltaics.

Greek Yogurt Analysis with the new Multiple Purpose Analyzer for ALL Dairy Applications
There are two ways to make Greek Yogurt: straining the whey out of the cultured product to make it thicker, or making the milk thicker by ultrafiltration to remove water, or using condensed milk or milk powder to enrich the milk. Typical liquid milk analyzers are only capable of analyzing enriched or ultrafiltration milk samples. They can’t do the cultured milk/strained type of Greek yogurt. With the Multiple Purpose Analyzer – Dairy (MPA-D) Bruker offers a solution for both products: enriched or ultrafiltration milk can go through the liquid sampling module (LSM). The final product is analyzed on the same instrument by reflectance, placing the sample in a glass Petri Dish. Bruker’s Tango (single channel FT-NIR analyzer with touch-screen interface) is an ideal solution where the analysis of the feedstock is in a separate facility, and a dedicated instrument is required for final product analysis. Even Yogurt with added fruit fruits can be analyzed in reflectance with either the Tango or MPA-D FT-NIR systems. With the MPA-D, Bruker Optics has designed a single instrument that analyzes samples from every phase of your manufacturing process: incoming raw materials like raw milk, condensed milk, milk powders, and whey products, in-process testing of vat milk, curds, and cultured milk, and final products, and by-products such as whey, condensed whey and whey derivatives. MPA-D replaces multiple instruments in the Dairy lab, reducing operator training, increasing available bench space, and significantly reducing the total cost of ownership for your Dairy processing operation.

Quick and Easy Quality Control of Polymers using FT-IR
FT-IR Spectroscopy is one of the fastest and most accurate methods for the analysis and quality control of polymers. High quality IR spectra can be recorded in a few seconds, with little to no sample preparation or additional costs for consumables. Without knowing the chemical composition of the defect, the determination of its origin is often difficult. FT-IR microscopy is an attractive tool for the analysis of contaminations since this technique is capable of identifying not only organic but also inorganic components. The LUMOS has been developed with these types of small samples in mind, along with the intent of providing state-of-the-art microanalysis capabilities with a truly easy-to-use user interface.

FT-NIR Technology for Process Control in the Food Industry
The production of any product is a chain of different engineering processes – from the raw materials, over preparing and production steps until the finished product is ready for delivery. Only an error-free progression through each of the single steps guarantees a product of sufficient and constant quality. The analytical control of all raw materials, intermediates and the products is a major issue in all kind of industries. Often classical off-line analysis methods such as HPLC, GC or wet chemistry methods are used. However, this comes with disadvantages; the most significant of these is the high expenditure of time and cost for the analysis. For most, even a laboratory with skilled personal is required.

Quality control during the process

In the Dairy industry the production capacity of plants is still increasing dramatically and therefore the process control becomes more and more important. In addition the quality demands are increasing while the margins are still low. Here the quality is not only important for the customer but even to avoid losses by bad quality batches. There are many applications like
• Monitoring of milk and milk based products in dairy processes, e.g. feed of a spray tower and control of the milk powder on protein, fat, total solids and lactose
• In-line analysis of frying fats
• Control of the fat content in chocolates to guarantee optimal viscosity and fluid behavior during production

Ensure Quality Milk and Dairy Products - From Farm to Refrigerator Using FT-NIR
The ability to rapidly analyze incoming raw materials, provide timely in-process testing results and final product quality measurements, is imperative to profitable operation in a modern dairy plant. Today, many labs are stuck in an inefficient cycle, employing one instrument to measure protein, fat and solids for incoming milk or whey, another for in-process testing of liquids, slurries and solids and yet another set of tests for the assessment of product quality parameters. Each of these instruments requires some combination of on-going maintenance, chemicals/solvents, and multiple tests performed by a trained technician.
This webinar will introduce a new solution: The Bruker Dairy Analyzer. Lightning fast analysis, based on modern infrared technology and an integrated Liquid Sampling Module (LSM) will dramatically improve your efficiency. The LSM employs automated sampling and homogenization (if required), allowing for streamlined analysis of many dairy products including, but not limited to: Raw, skim, processed and condensed milk, cream, and even ice cream with high total solid and fat concentrations.
