High-resolution ultrasonic spectroscopy for dairy analysis

Always an exciting technology, the uptake of ultrasonic spectroscopy has been hindered by its technical complexity and limited resolution. As Cormac Smyth, Breda O'Driscoll, Evgeny Kuryashov and Vitaly Buckin show, a new device has overcome these problems is finding applications in various dairy processes.

Sound out ultrasonic spectroscopy in the pharmaceutical processes

In the last issue of Elab, the principles behind ultrasonic spectroscopy were introduced. Here, Cormac Smyth,Evgeny Kudriashov, Breda O'Driscoll and Vitaly Buckintake a closer look at its practical applications.

New references assist validation in far ultra violet spectroscopy

John P Hammond reports on new certified reference materials for the determination of wavelength and photometric accuracy in far UV spectrophotometry.

Ultrasonic spectroscopy moves into laboratory for dynamic monitoring

Ultrasonic spectroscopy is all set to become a routine analytical technique in the laboratory. It provides a non-destructive way to measure the properties of materials, using sound waves rather than the more usual electromagnetic waves. As Vitaly Buckin and Breda O'Driscoll show, it can also be used for monitoring the course of dynamic processes such as biochemical reactions.

Novel spectroscopy techniques will assure food authenticity

Raman spectroscopy is already finding uses in the food industry, but now a new research project in Wales aims to develop an updated version of the technology so that it can be used for tasks such as assuring food authenticity.

Quantitative assay of tablets by transmission FT-NIR spectroscopy

In the pharmaceutical industry quality control is one of the most time-consuming activities in the production workflow. Kent T Møller, Magnus Tolleshaug and Thomas W. Jensen report on the use of near infrared spectroscopy for quality control analysis.

the emergence of portable spectroscopy

Thanks to the mass production of optical fibres, the development of low-cost detectors and optics, and the emergence of PCs, spectroscopy has expanded beyond the lab and into the field.

Small, inexpensive spectrometers make feasible applications that were previously cost prohibitive.

Modern trends in infrared spectroscopy

The utility of infrared (IR) spectroscopy in the analytical laboratory has been recognised for decades However, it is only over the past few years that developments in instrumentation and data processing have enabled the full potential of this technique to be realised Dr Simon Nunn reports on how this technique is now meeting the demands of modern quality control
