The Importance of Pharmaceutical Particle Size Analysis

Pharmaceutical Particle Size Analysis
Pharmaceutical Particle Size Analysis

Particle size analysis, also known as micromeritics, is a commonly used technique in the pharmaceutical industry. Particle size is one of the most important factors that contributes to the efficacy of a drug product. Additionally, particle size also affects the release of ingredients. The smaller the particle’s size, the faster it is dissolved in the body and the faster its affects can be felt.

Particle size also has an influence on the drug products overall physical stability. It helps keep the pharmaceutical in its correct form and remain intact throughout the manufacturing process and storage. Additionally, the size of the particles can alter the dosage of a drug.


Below are just a few of the test requests Contract Laboratory has received regarding particle size analysis:
  • Pharmaceutical laboratory needed for particle size analysis of an API using an alpine jet engine sieve shaker
