X-ray CT analysis for pharmaceutical samples

X-ray CT (computed tomography) is a non-destructive 3D imaging technique. It can reveal various defects of tablets, pills, and capsules, that might be missed if you grind them and only analyze them chemically. X-ray CT images can provide insights into what might be the root cause of underperforming drug products in the product development and troubleshooting processes.

Application examples:

  • Tablet crack and void analysis
  • Coating thickness and delamination analysis
  • Aggregates, amorphous, crystalline phase analysis
  • Degradation and dissolution process imaging
