L.B. Bohle has become the first manufacturer to offer a fully integrated NIR system for real-time monitoring of blend homogeneity and end-point determination during powder blending operations. The new turn-key system incorporates NIR spectroscopy with 21 CFR Part 11 compliant software to provide immediate and reliable data that is remotely transferred to a personal computer. The combination of a robust vibration-resistant design, moderate bin rotation speeds and easy-to-use software ensures 100% accurate results. The system is fully closed and eliminates physical sampling requirements. It also prevents all contact with potent products during testing.
