Particle Technology Labs is very proud to announce a recent contribution to an Engineers Without Borders USA project. Engineers Without Borders USA is an organization which works with developing communities around the world to empower them to sustainably
The value of knowing the surface area and porosity of a material cannot be underestimated. Surface area affects the dissolution rate in powders, including pharmaceuticals, as well as the adsorption rate of filtration and purifying materials such as
KEY POINTS The following key points are discussed: It is important that the results generated by a particle size analysis are thoroughly understood in the context of their appropriate application. The identification and correction of problems encountered in
INTRODUCTION Given the wide range of particle sizing technologies and instrumentation on the market, the choice of measurement technique can be daunting, especially if one is unfamiliar with the options available. Once introduced and familiar with an individual
ABSTRACT Image analysis is one method by which particle size may be measured. In many cases, it is considered the “gold standard” of particle size measurement and is often used to verify the results of other techniques. Sample
ABSTRACT The first installment of this two-part discussion concluded by stating a single linear measurement (i.e., circular equivalent diameter) may not be adequate to describe a typical non-spherical particle with some degree of surface roughness. There are various
ABSTRACT Fine particles are often characterized by their particle size and distribution as determined by various analytical instruments. Particle shape may be just as important as particle size. Particle shape, however, is often ignored or disregarded. Image analysis
ABSTRACT Specific surface area is a fundamental measurement in the field of fine particle characterization. Specific surface area measurements have numerous pharmaceutical manufacturing and quality applications. Compliance professionals should have a general understanding of the principles, procedures, and
