Particle counting laboratory according to EP 2.9.19

Chapter 2.9.19. of the European Pharmacopoeia relates to the control of non-visible particulate contamination. These new local requirements allow the test to be performed on volumes less than 5 mL. 

This analytical method is used to check the purity of a pharmaceutical injectable solution, or on the surface of medical devices and equipment.
