CONCLUSION


Figure 8. The Predicted Errror Sum of Squares (PRESS) Plot for Potency.
In this experiment, the analysis of lyophilized materials using FT-NIR spectroscopy was shown to be an effective, rapid, and non-destructive method for analyzing lyophilized materials. In this case, both moisture and potency were examined, with the primary methods used being Karl Fischer titration and colloidal light scattering, respectively. The moisture analysis calibration showed a correlation coefficient of 0.998 and an RMSEC of 0.005, with a residual of approximately 1.5%. These data suggest that FT-NIR analysis of lyophilized materials for moisture is limited only by the error implicit in the reference method. The analysis for potency indicated a correlation coefficient of 0.999 with an RMSEC of 21.9 and an average residual of 0.15%.
