Micro-CT for Pharmaceuticals, Medical Packaging and Medical Devices

X-ray micro-computed tomography (µCT) is one of the most powerful methods for studying materials in 3D. It is non-destructive, requiring minimal to no sample preparation.

Bruker SkyScan desktop micro-CT systems give you access to this technology in a fast, easy to use package, with a convenient small footprint. They are designed for intuitive use, high throughput and low overheads, to deliver on your investment

This webinar will give you an overview of the technology and highlight the design features of their desktop systems. A range of relevant applications will be covered:

  • Porosity
  • Micro-cracks
  • Composition
  • In situ compression testing on tablets
  • Distribution of active ingredients
  • Coating thickness
  • Checking the integrity of packaging and seals
  • Dimensional measurements of packaging
  • Inspecting parts for component performance
  • 3D measurement
  • Failure analysis
