Apo-Ident analysis system

New and innovative technologies are increasingly being used for pharmaceutical raw material identification, such as near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS). Apo-Ident allows customers to reliably determine the raw materials in less than two minutes, with unambiguous identification of most of the raw materials used in formulations. This is ensured by the QuickStep Apo-Ident software integrated into the analysis system. Apo-Ident was developed for the specific requirements of the pharmacy industry.
