MORPHOLOGI 4 RANGE Automated imaging for advanced particle characterization

 Open the catalog to page 1

MORPHOLOGICAL IMAGING FOR YOU Morphological imaging is fast becoming an essential technology in the laboratory toolkit for particle characterization. Providing automated, rapid, and component-specific morphological information, Morphologi instruments are employed to solve formulation and deformulation challenges, optimize material properties, and create confidence throughout development and manufacturing. These systems enable process control and optimization and provide quick identification of the cause of process deviations. “The Morphologi system produced databases of particle images...

PHARMACEUTICALS Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) and excipient particle size and shape are critical material attributes which must be understood and controlled during formulation development and process scale-up for both innovator and generic products. Morphologi delivers the data required to achieve this, and can also determine the component-specific API particle size required to establish in vitro bioequivalence for generics, minimizing associated clinical study costs. ENERGY STORAGE / BATTERIES Morphological descriptions can be used to correlate electrode powder attributes with...

Morphological imaging applies the technique of automated static image analysis to provide a complete, detailed description of the morphological properties of particulate materials. By combining particle size measurements such as length and width, with particle shape assessments such as circularity and convexity, morphological imaging fully characterizes both spherical and irregularly-shaped particles. This enables deeper understanding of a sample's characteristics through precise detection of agglomerates, foreign particles and other anomalous materials. It also delivers the data required...

CASE STUDY PARTICLE SHAPE When particle size alone is not enough Reading Scientific Services Ltd., UK, develops fully validated particle size analysis methods in line with pharmaceutical regulatory requirements. To do this, they must ensure their methods give tight control over potential sources of variability. Particle shape measurements are used to troubleshoot suspected dispersion issues encountered during laser diffraction measurements. In a recent project, variability of particle sizing results was observed, and a problem with the method was suspected. However, images from the...

MORPHOLOGICAL IMAGING WORKFLOW SAMPLE PREPARATION IMAGE CAPTURE IMAGE PROCESSING RESULT GENERATION CUSTOMER STORY Particle Technology Labs, Chicago, USA, a leading service laboratory dedicated to quality particle sizing and characterization, traditionally used manual microscopy techniques to supplement laser diffraction and other particle sizing techniques which are limited by their assumption of equivalent spherical diameter. The PTL team made the decision to purchase a Morphologi system, which has allowed them to automate manual imaging methods, process large numbers of images in many...
