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 P300 can rapidly test ambient air in any location, making it a useful tool to selectively test products, packaging materials, or headspace air. The P300 is 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 be used to efficiently identify quality issues so that they can be fixed as quickly as possible, protecting the company from recalls and other brand damage.
The NovaTest A1000 provides continuous online monitoring solutions, making it a useful device for occupational health and safety monitoring, production line monitoring, or other continuous applications. The A1000 can sample and analyze ambient air autonomously and alert users when target compounds exceed a certain threshold. This can be used to protect the safety of employees and to continuously monitor products to ensure quality. Continuous, real-time analysis provides immediate feedback, making it possible to respond quickly to minimize damages when threshold limits are exceeded or other problems are detected.
