For pharmaceutical companies, the need to understand, verify, and trace all steps of the manufacturing process is critical. From incoming material inspection to biologics manufacturing, Ocean Insight’s custom sensing solutions provide reliable, real-time answers.

Understanding Spectral Sensing

Spectroscopy involves shining light onto or through a sample and capturing a spectrum that shows the wavelengths of light removed by the sample through absorption and scattering. With information on how specific wavelengths of light interact with samples on a process line, manufacturers can determine the chemical composition and concentration of the components.

Advantages of Spectral Sensing

Inline monitoring of pharma processes enables manufacturers to manage production from raw materials to finished products. Sensing measurements can be made at critical stages throughout the process, allowing for quick intervention when parameters go beyond specified ranges. A more tightly controlled process leads to less waste and more consistent product quality.
