SEM analysis in the pharmaceutical industry

Do you work in the pharmaceutical sector and wish to analyse your products by SEM?

What is SEM?

To begin with, Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) is an electron microscopy technique. This method allows the analysis of a material by a fine beam of electrons that scans the surface of the material without destruction.

Why analyse your pharmaceutical products by SEM?

SEM analysis of pharmaceuticals and medical devices allows the search for and identification of contamination, particles and deposits.

In addition, Scanning Electron Microscopy is particularly useful for the analysis of :

  • Powder: particle size, morphology, chemical composition, etc.
  • Failure: breakage and breakage, change of colour and appearance…
