Particle size can influence the processability of powders, both API and excipient, and affect the final formulation. In order to maintain uniformity and obtain maximum efficacy from product, particle size distributions need to be studied, with quality control at key stages in production. The PSA is a powerful tool for research and development and quality control, determining size promptly, accurately and conveniently.
The PSA is a compact and reliable microscopic software analysis system that includes both the digital microscope as well as the software. Digital microscopy enables high resolution imaging, while the software conducts accurate and sensitive identification of particulate solids and agglomerations in solutions, from those images. The results are computed, tabulated and observed in real time.
Analysis and characterization of particles, 0.7 microns to 2000 microns in size
Software identifies morphology and classifies particles as isolated particles, agglomerations etc.
