Particle properties such as size, shape, and surface area affect product performance. Examples include blending of fertilizer materials as well as the dose uniformity of active pharmaceutical ingredients (API’s). There are a number of techniques for size analysis, including laser diffraction, dynamic light scattering, image analysis, and sieving. Furthermore, the effect of sampling and dispersion on results is significant and often independent of the choice of analysis technique. In this session we will discuss particle analysis theory and practice including effectively determining size, shape, and surface area.
