Cosmetics, Pharmaceuticals and Food

The ingredients of many drugs are sensitive to heat and quickly lose their effect due to heat influence. This is the case, for example, with emulsions, which often change their consistency even at summary temperatures while separating into constituents.In addition, fats contained in the emulsion can spoil, making the drug unusable.

Many medicines need to be kept refrigerated so as not to decompose as quickly. In Germany, there are more than 2,000 refrigerated or cold chain products such as special vaccines, asthma sprays, and insulins which may only exceed a temperature of 8 ° C for a short time. In addition to the chemistry for doctors, there are also numerous cosmetic products such as lotions which are sensitive to heat and therefore require special protection.

It is possible to reduce the reaction of drugs to thermal influences with suitable packaging. However, to find the right packaging, it is necessary to know the characteristics of the ingredients used.

Investigation methods such as thermal analysis and calorimetry are used in the field of pharmacology primarily to characterize the main active ingredients and to determine the pharmaceutical dosage form. Due to their high sensitivity, the instruments from LINSEIS enable the smallest thermal reactions to be detected with extremely small amounts of sample. This makes them ideal for use in this sensitive area.

EGA Pfeiffer

The combination of a Linseis Thermal Analyzer with a FTIR is especially interesting in fields such as polymers, chemical and pharmaceutical industry. Linseis has more than 20 years experience in providing a integrated hard- and software concept. For interpretation different libraries are available.



EGA Pfeiffer

The QMS – quadrupole mass spectrometer coupling device is a state of the art mass spectrometer with a heated inlet system. The QMS is used for the analysis of volatile decompositions. All Linseis instruments are especially designed to guarantee a user friendly operation of both the Thermal Analyzer and the Mass Spectrometer. A integrated Software solution is certainly available.


EGA In-Situ

EGA Pfeiffer

By coupling a Termobalance (TGA) or a Simultaneous Thermal Analyzer (STA) with a (GC-MS) Gas chromatography–mass spectrometry which is an analytical method that combines the features of gas-chromatography and mass spectrometry, one can combine the strength on these two tools. Applications of GC-MS include drug detection, environmental analysis, explosives, and identification of unknown samples.

An optical In-Situ Analysis offers many advantages such as: no Cooling / Modification of the measuring gas (for example no out-condensation, no transition reaction and no equilibrium shift).
Many materials with high condensation temperature for example alkali metals (Na, K and their combinations) are now able to be measured, heated capillary only suitable for some 200 – 250°C, the optical port allows measurement until 1600°C
