Materials testing you can trust
Our experts support you through all material testing procedures while ensuring your commercial requirements and production timescales are met.
Elements’s chemical testing and analysis help you confirm the identity and composition of chemical substances and materials used in your products.
Particle size distribution (PSD) and particle counting
Particle testing is vital to ensure the quality and effectiveness of medicinal products. The number and size of particles have a direct impact on the performance of pharmaceuticals and medical devices.
Rapid identification of unknown particulate contaminants is critical to ensure patient safety, maintain the high quality of your product and ensure regulatory compliance.
Understanding the physical characteristics of your product at the earliest stage of pharmaceutical development gives you a valuable competitive advantage and minimizes potentially costly product failures later in the development phase.
Physical and mechanical testing of polymers: determining the material properties of your polymer and plastic products, ensuring that they meet the demands of their specific application.
Polymorphism and crystal identification
Identification of the polymorphic form of an Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) is of critical importance when dealing with API’s prone to changing crystal structure during the life cycle of the pharmaceutical product.
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy analysis supports critical stages of pharmaceutical development.
