For Pharmaceutical powder blending

The SentroPAT BU II is a fully integrated solution for monitoring of pharmaceutical blending in bins that, due to its compact size and low weight, can be easily mounted to a wide range of blenders and containers.

A tunable laser-based MEMS spectrometer serves as the instrument’s heart. Superior optical resolution combined with low noise results in high analytical sensitivity. Transferring methods between various blender types, processes, and instruments is made easier by outstanding system-to-system comparability.

The system’s housing is simple to clean, which is necessary for use in GMP production facilities. The system has IQ/OQ documentation and has undergone complete validation. The system has software that complies with GMP standards and has automated validation routines for instrument performance.
