Combined FT-IR spectrometer/rheometer reduces development time and speeds time-to-market for pharmaceutical industry.

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. is featuring a combined FT-IR spectrometer/rheometer that provides a powerful analytical workstation for rapidly optimizing the pharmaceutical manufacturing process.

The Thermo Scientific Rheonaut module enables the Thermo Scientific HAAKE MARS III rheometer to be coupled with either a Thermo Scientific Nicolet iS10 or Nicolet™ iS™50 FT-IR spectrometer to help researchers easily identify and quantify changes in product properties. This streamlines the development process and speeds time to market for new products.

“Thermo Fisher brings a new level of understanding of the rheological phenomena on the molecular level that enables researchers to speed up pharmaceutical formulation and development processes,” said Birgit Schroeder, product line director lab instruments, Thermo Fisher material characterization business.

Schroeder continued, “This is just another example of how we continue to equip researchers and scientists with the instruments needed to help deliver world-class pharmaceuticals.”

The combined FT-IR spectrometer and rheometer features a rapid multi-technique assessment that is deployed in less than 60 seconds for fast-changing samples.

The seamless coupling of the instruments enables identical sample and simultaneous test conditions as well as reliable correlation of results.

With this streamlined process, researchers have an enhanced understanding of material properties needed to help improve productivity and efficiency across the lab.

Existing Thermo Scientific HAAKE™ MARS™ users can upgrade their installation with the Rheonaut module to enable the FT-IR coupling.

Thermo Fisher will showcase the FT-IR spectrometer/rheometer combination within Thermo Scientific booth 4519 during the 2012 AAPS conference in Chicago, Oct. 14-18.

Thermo Fisher, one of the pioneers in rheology, successfully supports a wide range of industries with its comprehensive Thermo Scientific material characterization solutions.

Material characterization solutions analyze and measure viscosity, elasticity, process ability and temperature-related mechanical changes of plastics, food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and coatings, chemical or petrochemical products, plus a wide variety of liquids or solids.
