SEM for Pharmaceutical Applications

The Phenom ProX desktop SEM with energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) for elemental analysis is an ideal fit for the pharmaceutical industry. The Phenom SEM maximizes workflow with accessibility and ease of use. The backscattered electron detector (BSD) reveals material differences, quickly indicating foreign particulate matter that may be identified with energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS). Accurate identification of metals is a benefit of EDS for elemental analysis compared to other techniques.

Our automated particle analysis software option enables you to analyze pharmaceutical particles. Using ParticleMetric, statistical data can quickly be compiled to determine particle distribution and morphology, including parameters like circularity, diameter, circumference, area, and aspect ratio. As an automated technique, operator bias is minimized.
