Analysis of particulate contamination on your powders by SEM-EDX

You wish to perform a particle contamination analysis on your powders by SEM-EDX

Why analyse particulate contamination on your powders by SEM-EDX?

Firstly, SEM-EDX is a microscopic analysis technique using a field effect gun (FEG). This technique produces very high resolution images (magnification of the order of *1000000).

In addition, the SEMs are coupled with EDX probes allowing extremely accurate analysis of particulate contamination on your powders. These SEM-EDX techniques are indeed equipped with a detection of signal in column 20 times more intense than that of a conventional Scanning Electron Microscope. Thus, the SEM-EDX allows non-destructive, accurate and fast observations and analysis of investigations.  

The presence of particulate contamination in a powder can render it unusable and it is therefore necessary to identify the nature of this contamination in order to identify its origin and thus prevent this phenomenon.

Thus, the support of a laboratory equipped with SEM-EDX is essential when analysing particulate contamination on powders.
