Pharmaceutical processing and production commonly involves a range of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) used in solvents, adhesives, packaging materials, and so on. These VOCs can make their way into the surrounding air or even into the pharmaceutical products themselves. Pharmaceuticals are subject to strict regulations which control the amounts of these compounds that are permissible in final products. Reliable monitoring is important for ensuring workplace safety and quality control. However, these VOCs can be difficult to monitor effectively due to the time requirements and complexity of traditional techniques. Rapid, comprehensive analysis is needed to properly address these issues.
The NovaTest P100 and P300 can rapidly sample and analyze ambient air in any location, making them useful devices for emissions testing. The device samples from the ambient air without any additional equipment or sample preparation required. The compact design allows them to conveniently test the air in smaller spaces inaccessible to a traditional benchtop devices, while they are yet capable of detecting a wide range of compounds with high sensitivity in a single test, and the system automatically generates an instant report with calculated results. These features can easily be used in the production line, the parking lot, or in inspection shops to quickly evaluate the emissions of a vehicle.
