Guest Speaker: Dr. Richard Jackson PhD, Galaxy Scientific
When raw materials are purchased, it is critically important to verify that the correct substances have been received for quality, regulatory, and economic reasons. Often the incoming materials need to be opened, sent to a lab, and tested while inventory waits to be cleared for use.
Near Infrared spectroscopy offers a simple and reliable way of verifying the content and quality of incoming materials. This helps streamline existing processes or set the foundation of new incoming quality initiatives.
Recently, innovations in near-infrared processing algorithms have mitigated the need to open incoming material bags, allowing FT-NIR to scan materials through the packaging.
Our partner, Galaxy Scientific will demonstrate the usefulness of FT-NIR spectroscopy for basic incoming material verification and show the new ability to sample through plastic and paper packaging.
By attending our webinar, you will learn:
- Basic use of FT-NIR spectroscopy to verify incoming raw materials
- Qualitative and quantitative algorithms used in material identification
- Advanced methods used to scan through plastic and paper bags without opening them
This webinar is ideal for:
- Pharmaceutical Operations Managers
- Quality Control Managers and Technicians
- R&D Manager at food and pharmaceutical companies
- Plant Managers and Supervisors
- Laboratory Technicians and Operators
Richard Jackson, Ph.D.
CEO & Co-Founder, Galaxy Scientific
Richard Jackson got his Ph.D. in the Dept. of Physics at the University of Leeds in England in the field of Raman spectroscopy of polymers. After completing his Ph.D. he moved to the USA to assume postdoctoral positions at the University of California at Riverside and at the University of Idaho. After completing his postdoctoral studies, he took positions at Mattson Instruments and Bruker Instruments. In 2011, Dr. Jackson co-founded Galaxy Scientific Inc., a manufacturer of Fourier transform spectrometers, where he currently holds the position of CEO.
