In the laboratory and online, the applications for optical spectroscopy in process analysis are extensive. For solids or liquids, blending monitoring, cleaning validation, drying processes or wet granulation, J&M Analytik instrumentation provides individual solutions for many industries including pharmaceuticals, inks, and chemicals production. NIR spectroscopy can be used for on‐line monitoring of blend processes saving time and money by reducing cycle times and offline sampling errors. Using on‐line UV‐VIS spectroscopy for rinse monitoring can eliminate time consuming and costly off‐line measurements.

Fibre Photonics manufactures mid-IR fiber-optic probe technology for chemical analysis in environmental, chemical, pharmaceutical, avionic and food & drink applications. J&M Analytik AG recently won a Process Innovation Award along with GEA Pharma Systems, for their recently launched Lighthouse Probe. The Lighthouse Probe delivers continuous, precise and reliable data, paving the way for dramatic improvements in process understanding and control, and uses an in‐line, contained window‐wash to keep a clear view at all times without needing to stop the process.
