The TruProcess* analyzer demonstrates the proven precision of a benchtop system and is easily integrated into existing manufacturing processes. The analyzer provides fast, reliable, real-time process analysis while optimizing manufacturing throughput, ensuring product quality and lowering production costs. In addition, the analyzer includes micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) technology that transforms traditional NIR spectroscopy into a process-line NIR sensor.

“Pharmaceutical manufacturers want to directly analyze materials during blending and drying, in-process and in real-time, but this cannot come at the expense of quality or efficiency,” said Chris Petty, vice president and general manager of Thermo Fisher Scientific’s portable optical analysis business. “TruProcess offers manufacturers a fast and reliable on-line process analysis tool. By leveraging NIR spectroscopy and MEMS technology, the analyzer offers the most complete process scalability in the market.”

The small and lightweight enclosure of TruProcess permits interface with the widest range of pharmaceutical process equipment. It features an integrated position sensor and wireless communications, can complete a scan within one second, and has the ability to monitor blending rates of up to 25 RPMs. The analyzer is also compatible with Thermo Scientific Method Development software to allow for both qualitative and quantitative applications including drying, blending and moisture analysis.
