microPHAZIR Rx

Handheld Pharmaceutical Material Analysis - RMID, Qualitative, Quantitative, Lyophilisation...

The microPHAZIR Rx (formerly Polychromix PHAZIR) is the world’s first handheld Near-Infrared (NIR) analysis system designed for rapid on-site pharmaceutical material identification and analysis. The 2.75 lb analyser is battery powered and completely self-contained for truly portable analysis.

The microPHAZIR Rx provides pharmaceutical manufacturers with a new portable tool to meet increasing regulatory requirements (100% inspection), improve product quality, and reduce manufacturing costs. microPHAZIR Rx takes the power of NIR out of the laboratory into the warehouse and manufacturing floor to save testing costs, ensure product quality through increased testing frequency, while also reducing supply chain risk.
