Product Announcement from Hiden Analytical
The real time analysis of organic vapours and moisture in materials and reactions processes provides valuable information in pharmaceutical product development.
Real time evolved gas analysis from thermo-gravimetric analysers inTGA-MSapplications and from reaction calorimeters provides detailed information - unachievable with traditional laboratory techniques
Coupling a Mass Spectrometer to Thermal Analysis techniques provides for evolved gas analysis as a function of time and temperature. The combined TA-MS data is used to characterise materials.
Data obtained from thermal analysis equipment provides great insight into thermodynamic and mechanistic aspects of the thermal behaviour of materials and their interactions with probe molecules. Mass Spectrometry employed in conjunction with thermal analysis provides speciation of evolved species as function of temperature and time to provide an extremely powerful technique for the characterisation of materials and their interactions and reactions with their environment. In order to obtain the full benefits from a TA-MS coupling, it is vital that the interface is optimised to avoid dead volumes and cold spots that compromise system performance. Hiden software/hardware interfaces provide for seamless operation for the combined TA-MS system.
Hiden offers optimized interface coupling to a range of thermal analysis systems including:
TGA-MS and TGA/DTA-MS systems: Hiden Isochema IGA - intelligent gravimetric analyser, PerkinElmer-TA Instruments- Netzsch- Mettler Toledo- Seteram
Calorimetry: Mass spectrometry for simultaneous evolved gas/calirometry analysis. Evolved gas analysis compliments the calorimetric data providing reaction kinetics data and speciation of reaction off gas.

In pilot plant and production scale fermentors, information relating to yield of product is of high importance. Hiden's gas analysers are configured with a multiport Off-Gas analysis manifold enabling simultaneous sampling from multiple fermentors. Data is used for the calculation of the respiratory quotient, carbon production rate and oxygen uptake rate.
The Off-Gas measurement provides the respiratory quotient in a time and space averaged form and with good response time. By comparison data from multiple dissolved species probes are more specific and can provide information about stirring efficiency, aeration and feed distribution within the fermentor. Dissolved gas measurements have the advantage of giving direct information on gas uptake and for dissolved output rates.
Hiden Analytical offers systems with either Off-Gas or dissolved species inlets or both
Mutlistream gas/vapour analyser. Simultaneous sampling from multiple fermentors.
Laboratory style gas/vapour analyser. Multiple species -PPB to 100% measurement range.
Dissolved species analyser. Ecological studies, fermentation studies, Bio fuels.
Lyophilization, commonly referred to as freeze drying, is the process of removing water from a product by sublimation and desorption. The freeze drying process is optimised by the introduction of solvents and gas species to improve product quality and to enhance the drying process.
Hiden's gas analysers provide detailed information about the gas/vapour composition during both the primary and secondary drying phases. Detection of the on-set of the secondary drying phase is readily detected. Analysis during the secondary drying phase enables a reduction in process cycle time and provides end point detection. Accurate determination of a user defined process 'end point' enables high consistency in product yield from batch to batch.
RGA for vacuum, process monitoring and leak detection.
