|Who is it for||
All employees in analytical quality teams including quality control and quality assurance, who are involved in performing and reviewing moisture analysis results.
|Why it matters||
Presence of moisture results in microbial growth in pharmaceutical products, plastics, and food items. Moisture can affect their shelf life and usability. Water content can also impact the taste, behavior, and appearance of the final product. There are statutory rules that govern the maximum permissible moisture content in products (e.g. drug and food regulations). Having a thorough understanding of moisture determination techniques is crucial for QC analysts.
