The SpectRx® Near Infrared High Speed Production System is Compliant with FDA CFR-21-Part 11

The SpectRx Near Infrared
System is the only known non-destructive Near Infrared on-line automated production system performing real-time analysis of chemical compositions for organic products in solid, powder, liquids, semi-solid, or gas forms.

The  system  is  rugged, reliable,  and  simple  to  use  in  many   different applications    throughout    pharmaceuticals,    chemical,    food,    meat, cosmetics,   gas,   fertilizers,   and   medical   industry.       Among   other applications,  the SpectRx non-destructively  measures and analyzes active ingredients, chemical  compositions, moisture contents, hardness in   tablets/capsules/caplets,   and  disintegration   in   tablets/caplets.    It analyzes  the  chemical  compounds  that  may  or  may not combine with polymer base, such as polymer in medical Stents.

The SpectRx system analyzes fat, protein, and water contents of beef, pork, poultry, and other food products.

Industry    may   use   the   SpectRx   NIR system   to   inspect   and verify   products contained in plastic blisters either before or after  the  final  seal-stage using single or dual probes at a rate of 80 or 160 scans/second.

The SpectRx NIR System is engineered to simplify the assembly and
the construction  of high-speed production inspection environments. It consists of three major Plug and Play modules; the Interferometer, the Processor and the Near Infrared Fiber Optic Probe. The engineering staff of American SensoRx Inc., has developed the SpectRx™ software to enable  operators  ease of programming for on-line analysis of pharmaceuticals, food, chemical or medical products.
