Raw Material Identification (RMID) is one of the most important aspects of quality control in the pharmaceutical, food and chemical industries. Ideally, the method for identifying raw materials should be fast, easy to implement and non-destructive.
Near-infrared (NIR) and Raman spectroscopy are perfectly suited for even the most challenging RMID applications. These techniques are complementary to each other which increases their value and empowers their more widespread use within a facility. These techniques can be used to identify a wide variety of raw materials and can even distinguish between closely related ones that have similar chemical structures.
