Pharmaceutical drug manufacturing requires stringent quality standards from the delivery of raw materials to the final quality check and shipping. Humidity variables within these stages when manufacturing various pharmaceuticals can cause entire batches of product to fail Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requirements.

Each of these operations must meet the FDA requirements. This strongly encourages innovation in manufacturing technology, including continuous processing as part of the Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs) to ensure the quality of their products. Pharmaceutical moisture control can be one of the more costly and timely quality measures pharmaceutical manufacturers will undertake.

Reap the Benefits of MoistTech’s 40 Years of Moisture Measuring Experience

Fortunately, MoistTech’s history of excellence in the manufacturing industry keeps the cGMPs on the cutting edge of quality assurance by making quality part of the in-line process and not a separate procedure. Proper moisture control with MoistTech’s sensors both in-line and in the laboratory can save thousands of dollars by preventing raw material losses, batch losses from failed quality testing, and production time losses. When properly done, pharmaceutical moisture control ensures the final products are the highest possible quality.

Monitor with MoistTech’s IR-3000 Moisture Sensor

The IR-3000 near infrared (NIR) online moisture detector and software system was designed to measure the moisture in the most exacting environments under the strictest of regulations. You can meet and exceed FDA regulations for drug moisture control because the sensor provides non-contact measurement, allowing moisture control in real time. With the IR-3000 optimizing process control, you can expect product quality to improve, productivity to increase, and production costs to decrease.

Look at What Is Available for Your Lab Needs

MoistTech has lab appropriate sensors as well as the IR-3000 and many work in collaboration with the IR-3000. One such model is the IRMA 858 near infrared (NIR) moisture analyzer. The IRMA 858 is MoistTech’s fast at-line sensor. Ideal for laboratories or near processing lines, the IRMA 858 infrared moisture gauge is the first sensor where samples are measured from the bottom up in sealed, quartz-based containers.
