Moisture content determination is an important quality control test in pharmaceutical manufacturing, from the checking of incoming raw materials and in-process control of tablets and capsules to undertaking quality checks of finished drugs as part of pharmacopeial testing procedures. Moisture testing is also one of the critical quality parameters in the stability testing of drugs.

Halogen Moisture Analyzers for Fast, Accurate and Comparable Results.

METTLER TOLEDO halogen moisture analyzers are based on the principle of thermo-gravimetry (similar to LoD), but results are provided in minutes instead of hours. This allows pharmaceutical companies to optimize processes and assists with the faster release of batches of finished products.

They are a viable alternative method for LoD testing and may be validated as per individual pharmacopoeia guidelines.

HX204 – Fit for Regulatory Demands

The HX204 halogen moisture analyzer from METTLER TOLEDO complies with regulatory aspects of quality testing in a pharmaceutical environment. Features such as user management, method assignment, control limits and performance testing at point of use make it the best-fit choice for working within a highly regulated environment.

Additionally, the HX204 assists companies to achieve data integrity based on ALCOA+ principles by supporting paper and PDF processes.

The moisture content of pharmaceutical excipients can be determined quickly and accurately with the easy-to use HX204 moisture analyzer with results highly comparable with the drying oven reference method.

Following validation of the drying method, Pharmacopoeias accept a moisture analyzer as an alternative to the loss on drying method using a drying oven for determining moisture content in a pharmaceutical environment. The HX204 further supports pharmaceutical companies to meet regulatory requirements with built-in functions for routine testing and user management options as well as support with data compliance.
