A beta version of the USP Spectral Library - Powered by Bio-Rad's KnowItAll® is now available.

The USP Spectral Library is a new interactive, authoritative, and comprehensive collection of spectral information on drug and food quality. Manufacturers can access the USP Spectral Library on the KnowItAll platform for raw material identification during routine quality control measures to confirm the identity of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and excipients used in their products.

With applications in quality standards development, rapid screening in the field for counterfeit and substandard foods, medicines, and dietary supplements, and the identification of raw materials and finished products, the USP Spectral Library is a critical spectral resource for regulatory authorities, law enforcement agencies, hospitals, pharmacies, manufacturers, and distributors around the world.

To ensure the highest quality, USP generates spectra for the USP Spectral Library using the collaborative testing model for which USP is renowned. The USP Spectral Library, powered by Bio-Rad's KnowItAll software, utilizes a new, self-validating, 21 CFR Part 11 compliant quality control application called QC Expert.
