Chemical Imaging for Pharmaceutical Testing

Insurance Investigation Support Chemical imaging is a non-destructive imaging technique that combines spatial and spectral information to provide a more complete characterization of a sample. This technique can be used to improve product quality or to solve complex problems by facilitating a better understanding of drug development and manufacturing processes.

Gateway Analytical has extensive knowledge and experience in many chemical imaging applications, providing critical information about product formulation and the development process. Such information leads to improvements in the overall product quality and efficacy of nasal, inhalation, transdermal and controlled release drug products to drug developers. Our scientists are leading the way in applying Raman, visible, near-infrared and fluorescence chemical imaging to complex pharmaceutical problems.
