Improve manufacturing processes and ensure patient safety
From raw material identification through the pharmaceutical manufacturing process, to finished and packaged pharmaceutical product inspection, our solutions help pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturers save time, improve processes, protect brand integrity, and ensure patient safety.
Pharmaceutical manufacturing categories
Protect consumers and your brand, comply with manufacturing codes of practice, and meet legal requirements. Checkweighing, metal detection, and x-ray inspection systems designed specifically for pharmaceutical applications help manufacturers ensure completeness of supply and freedom from foreign object contamination before products get into customers’ hands. These technologies also help improve production quality, throughput and efficiency.
cGMP and associated process monitoring standards require continuous process verification and analysis. Process mass spectrometers can help track fermentation and cell culture processes in real time and help produce quantitative solvent drying data to optimize the drying process. Process gas analysis technologies deliver lab-quality online gas composition analysis and help maximize product yield and profitability. Near-infrared and Raman handheld instruments can be used for qualitative and quantitative analysis at the point of need to measure quality through a process.
Raw material testing and identity verification are critical steps in the quality control process to ensure customer safety. Portable pharmaceutical analyzers can be used on the warehouse floor and at any inspection point throughout the QA/QC process to increase inspection intervals, improve inventory management, and reduce global supply chain risk.
API solubility and processing stability, taste-masking, enterics, and specialized dosage forms are critical issues in drug formulation and manufacturing. Our extruders and related analytical instrumentation provide the shortest path from feasibility studies to production.
End-to-End Solutions for Pharma and Biotech
Handheld Raman spectrometers have fundamentally changed how the pharmaceutical industry performs incoming raw material identification testing. The Thermo Scientific ™ TruScan™ RM Handheld Raman Analyzer continues to push the trend that it started with a new set of capabilities to improve quality testing initiatives for biopharmaceutical manufacturers.
A quality specialist from a Johnson & Johnson company will also share his experience with the use of Thermo Scientific™ TruTools™ for the quantification of APIs in their syrup products.
In this webinar you’ll learn:
- What TruScan is and how it supports continuous improvement for biopharma manufacturers
- Applications using TruTools chemometric software to identify classically difficult materials and cell culture medias
- How to leverage TruTools to create quality testing algorithms for at-line PAT checks and perform protein product identification
Producing the highest quality pharmaceuticals is the common goal of all pharma and biotech manufacturers. This eBook offers guidance and best practices for the issues that concern the pharma and biotech manufacturing industry the most.

Join us for this webinar to learn how the portable x-ray fluorescence (XRF) instrument, the Thermo Scientific™ IonicX™ improves salt testing, allowing quick results in the warehouse. IonicX replaces traditional time-consuming and resource-intensive wet chemistry and benchtop methods and allows sample results to be available in less than a minute.
The key objectives of this webinar are to help you:
- Learn what materials can be identified using portable XRF
- Understand how to measure ionic salts quickly with the IonicX
- Be able to make the decision if portable technologies will help you.
By law, pharmaceutical manufacturers must identify and verify all incoming materials. Current Good Manufacturing Processes (cGMP) require that not only incoming raw materials but all in-process materials be tested for identity, strength, quality, and purity throughout the manufacturing process.
