Multichannel diode array NIR Analyser

The SentroPAT FO is a versatile, robust, and reliable system that can be utilised to keep an eye on a number of unit processes when solid dosage pharmaceuticals are being processed. The NIR spectrometer diode array serves as the system’s foundation, and when the analyser is used in conjunction with any SentroProbe and set up with SentroSuite GMP, it is a complete solution that offers insightful process information from product development to routine operation.

The SentroPAT FO provides incredibly insightful information about virtually every process step, including, but is not limited to, blending, granulation, drying, and compressing.
