There are many examples emphasizing the importance of particle analysis - be it in the API analysis of drugs, adhesives, recycling, electronics manufacturing, biomedical products and much more. Reverse engineering and the investigation of causes of defects in manufacturing processes can also require comprehensive particle analysis.
One of the challenges in analyzing microparticles is the size of the particles themselves and the frequent incorporation of these contaminants into matrices. Particle defects can affect product quality, appearance and performance. The SENTERRA II confocal Raman microscope is a powerful tool for the analysis of microparticles without sample preparation and even within sample containers.
In our application note, we have summarized some applications to give you an overview of the possibilities of confocal Raman microscopy.
