Quantum Leap in Real-time Monitoring?
Continuous monitoring of pharma products with an innovative matchbox-sized laser
Stephanie Sutton |
Product quality monitoring is essential in pharma and chemical production, but often performed manually. Researchers from two Fraunhofer Institutes (Applied Solid State Physics in Freiburg and Photonics Microsystems in Dresden, Germany) may have found the ultimate solution. The team has developed a matchbox-sized laser module that can be rapidly tuned over a wide spectral range, opening the door to spectroscopic identification and quantification of substances in real time. For pharma manufacturers, this means the ability to trace chemical reactions or to measure product composition continuously.
