In order to provide specific information on contaminant microparticles immediately and accurately, Warsash Scientific has presented rap.ID’s Single Particle Explorer for particle counting, morphological analysis and chemical characterisation.
The Single Particle Explorer was created for routine particle characterisation. As part of this, it can be used quite easily for identification and characterisation of contaminant particulate.
Contaminant microparticles result in significant loss of quality and reduction of production yield. The Single Particle Explorer supports your routine particle characterisation to allow appropriate measures for particle minimisation to be taken independently, quickly and safely.
Through optimised and integrated particle filtration and illumination, fully-automated image processing and Raman spectroscopy, the Single Particle Explorer is suitable for particles from as small as 5μm.
Single Particle Explorer provides information about particle number and size, shape (elongation; angularity, circular equivalent, diameter, area) and chemical composition (material with degree of database compliance).
The isolation, characterisation and identification of microparticles is particularly relevant for industries such as pharmaceutical (reporting according to 21 CFR Part 11), medical device, semiconductor, electronics and hard disk manufacturing, car, food and aerospace engineering, etc.
New features of the Single Particle Explorer include
Up to 4 samples can be loaded simultaneously into the sample changer.
Flexible magnification and illumination:
The system changes the objectives either for the particle documentation, size measurement or for the Raman spectroscopy. Optional with brightfield illumination and colour images.
Every particle image is sharp. Several fields on the focal plane are measured and the entire filter surface, up to 18mm effective filtration area is evaluated down to a minimum particle size of 5μm.
Down to a particle size of 2μm particles are automatically analysed. The system positions the laser focus on the particles. They can be selected by size, shape criteria or manually.
