Pharmaceutical / Biotechnology

The Pharmaceutical industry continues to be an essential element of healthcare systems worldwide. Today’s manufacturers need to know about the latest Process Analytical Technologies (PAT). Implementing the most innovative, cutting-edge technologies gives pharmaceutical manufacturers the tools needed to gain position in the marketplace. Significant opportunities exist to improve product development and to better analyze and control the manufacturing processes. In addition, the pharmaceutical industry has the same basic needs as many other industries. Reducing production downtime and increasing productivity are the main goals.

For analysis and control, engineers rely on Quadrupole Mass Spectrometers. Extrel’s MAX300 Quadrupole Mass Spectrometers can be found in pharmaceutical plants around the world. These advanced systems provide an array of analyses which give engineers the ability to better control processes such as:

Some of the advantages of using the MAX300 include:

  • Low level detection and quantifiable low level analysis
  • Full, fast and precise analysis of incoming air and off-gas from fermentors
  • Analysis of minor ppm/ppb level concentrations of individual by-products
  • Ability to terminate drying process at true endpoint
  • Can view concentration profiles of solvents over time
  • Fast and flexible analysis of an unlimited number of components in a single analysis method
  • Elimination of idle time between batches

Extrel has been producing Quadrupole Mass Spectrometers for over 45 years. We work closely with our customers to understand their obstacles involving pharmaceutical and biotechnology applications. Our expertise in developing the specific products our customers need has established our reputation as the world’s leading supplier of Gas Analysis Systems, Mass Spectrometers and Components.
