FMS-Water Activity

The FMS-Water Activity Headspace Analyzer enables robust and accurate determination of water activity of drug product samples. Applications include water activity determination of dry sterile product, oral solid dosage forms, and API material.

The FMS-Water Activity Headspace Analyzer can be used throughout the entire product life cycle from development to QC laboratory applications to at-line, in-process control of tableting processes in production:

  • Water activity determination (% RH) of solid dosage, lyo, and powder product
  • Real-time moisture exchange studies
  • Water vapor transmission rate studies
  • Replacement of Karl Fischer Titration (KFT), Loss On Drying (LOD) for moisture determination
  • Rubber stopper drying studies
  • Microbial studies
