A central requirement in the production of pharmaceutical products is the avoidance of visible foreign particles. Our testing laboratory has developed innovative and at the same time simple methods to reliably quantify foreign particles in pharmaceutical powders.
Lena Heneka, our former holiday assistant, will begin her voluntary service in South Africa in August. We are happy to support Lena's mission and wish her lots of fun and many interesting experiences in South Africa!
The identification of metallic particles is an important requirement in cleanliness analysis. In recent years, the light-optical detection of metallic particles has commonly been performed by the means of gloss. On the basis of our laboratory experience, we have found that the light microscopic analysis often leads to incorrect typifications, which can be easily avoided by a material analysis using SEM-EDX.
