In many cases, mixtures of finely divided drugs that are eventually made into capsules, caplets, creams and other forms of medicines are pressed into plaques for the purpose of color measurement prior to final processing to ensure lot-to-lot and batch-to-batch color consistency.
Many of HunterLab's spectrophotometers are versatile enough to accommodate most applications of color measurement. However, based on 60+ years of experience and a thorough understanding of our customers' needs and product use, these particular instruments are most suited for this industries application.
