Contact SCAS if you have issues with foreign materials. Our laboratory experts are always ready to support you and we are backed-up by advanced technology and significant experience.
Product quality issues related to pharmaceutical products and medical devices have been increasing in recent years with 80% being caused by contamination with foreign material. SCAS employs a micromanipulator system for foreign material retrieval and analyzes foreign material using high-sensitivity component analysis with a scanning infrared microscope system (IRμs/SIRM) and an electron probe microanalyzer (EPMA) to study the causes of foreign material contamination.
- Only a trace amount of foreign material is removed from the sample matrix and analyzed.
- We are capable of analyzing foreign material as small as 10 μm in size.
- Foreign matter contained in liquids, emulsions and other samples can be efficiently analyzed as well.
