Near-infrared reflectance (NIR) methods for non-invasive and non-destructive measurement of moisture in a lyophilized product were developed independently at two sites. NIR spectra were collected with the same model instrument at each site. The spectra were scanned through the bases of unopened glass vials using a horizontal instrument accessory. The(More)
A near-infrared reflectance (NIR) method for determination of moisture in an experimental freeze-dried injection product was developed and validated. NIR spectra were collected through the bases of unopened product vials using a horizontal instrument accessory, before generating primary reference data on the same individual vials by Karl-Fischer titration.(More)
Near-infrared reflectance analysis (NIR) methods have been developed for the confirmation of the identity of blister-packed tablets for clinical trial supplies. Three approaches are described: (1) presentation of single exposed tablets from blisters directly to the optical window; (2) presentation of unopened opaque blister-packed tablets directly to the(More)
We present the strategy that has been adopted for the development of the software system for the LHCb experiment. This strategy follows an architecture-centric approach as a way of creating a resilient software framework that can withstand changes in requirements and technology. The software architecture, called GAUDI, covers event data processing(More)
