Legal situation of nir in pharmacies

According to the European Pharmacopoeia (Ph. Eur.) and the Ordinance on the Operation of Pharmacies, the application of alternative, innovative identification methods is expressly authorised and simplifies your efforts in the pharmaceutical laboratory.

Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) is a versatile analytical method. In Section 2.2.40, the Ph. Eur. describes it as a suitable method for checking substance identity. In this connection, a secure identification method will require a valid database established on a sufficient number of tested samples. These should exhibit the typical substance variations. The validation parameters are specificity and stability.

The stability and 100% specificity for the Apo-Ident have been reviewed by a detailed validation document. Please contact us to receive a copy.
