Multispectral imaging unlocks valuable information on both quality and safety of pharmaceutical materials. Parameters measureable by multispectral imaging such as colour, texture, gloss, shape, and size provide useful information on a finished product, on the raw materials, or on the manufacturing process itself.  Multispectral imaging provides a rapid quality assessment of uniform and inhomogeneous samples alike by combining information on all of the above parameters automatically in just a few seconds, requiring no sample preparation and leaving the material intact.
