Guidance on How to Measure the Moisture Content in Pharmaceuticals

The moisture content of pharmaceuticals and their raw materials has a significant impact on their processing, quality, efficacy and shelf life. Accurate monitoring is therefore an essential element of quality control testing.

Traditional moisture analysis is laborious and time-consuming – relying on ‘loss on drying’ approaches with a drying oven – making it impractical in a busy pharmaceutical environment where fast results are required. Halogen moisture analyzers offer fast, precise and reliable results, but it is essential that workflows are carefully designed to ensure comparable results to the official drying oven method and in compliance with regulations.
