Raman spectroscopy is an established spectroscopic technique for measuring the chemical identity and structure of materials across many industries, including pharmaceuticals, fine chemicals, minerals and foods.
Raman spectroscopy has a very high chemical specificity and is routinely used to differentiate between different polymorphs of the same compound for example. When used in conjunction with static image analysis it provides a powerful means of measuring the chemical identity of individually dispersed particles within a sample.
Applications of this technique include:

Significant advances have been made in analytical technology for the characterization and identification of particles present in pharmaceutical products. With these advances comes a tremendous amount of new data with which to characterize biologics, ...
In a recent newsletter, the US FDA highlighted the important role Morphologically-Directed Raman Spectroscopy (MRDS) can play in supporting the development of generic drug products. The component-specific particle size and shape distribution data gen...
As the pharmaceutical industry continues to move towards a quality by design (QbD) paradigm, the design and control of active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) particle characteristics, in particular the control of API particle size and habit with resp...
This presentation explores the relevance of soil analysis in forensic science. It presents the use of Morphologically-Directed Raman Spectroscopy (MDRS) and its potential to be a valuable tool for forensic soil analysis due to its non-destructive, au...
There are many technologies available for the increased understanding of protein unfolding and stability, including calorimetry, spectroscopy, and light scattering techniques. In recent years, Raman spectroscopy has proven to be useful for the charac...

Controlling powder bulk density by optimizing particle size and shape distribution
(October 6 2016)
Nanoparticle size is an important criterion for our formulations and we routinely measure this with the Zetasizer Nano.
My students have always had great things to say about the Zetasizer Nano. They say it’s very easy to use. The software is very user-friendly and it can accommodate particles of various different sizes, so I have never had reason to evaluate another particle sizing instrument.

On-line zeta potential measurement is helping us to achieve a more cost-efficient water facility.
The Zetasizer Nano is so easy to use. All my students can familiarise themselves with it very quickly. As a result, we are purchasing a second instrument to ensure we have enough capacity for our expanding research programme in this area.

Here at IU’s Nanocharacterization facility, the Malvern Zetasizer Nano is the ‘go to’ instrument for characterization of assembled product.

We very much value the customer service and training opportunities from Malvern. In particular, the rapid diagnosis of any issues through direct internet connection with the Malvern customer service team has prevented us from suffering production downtime.

The big plus of an on-line instrument is real-time monitoring, the value of which was really brought home to us during a recent treatment event. The on-line data we collected during the event gave us new insight into a modified operating scheme that we’re now capitalizing on.
The Malvern systems have proved highly effective, allowing us to further demonstrate the stability and purity of our products and how this may be translated into improving liquid biopharmaceutical formulations.
We’ve always been really happy with Malvern and while we’ve tried other companies, the necessary expertise was not there.

The Morphologi G3-ID has proven straightforward and easy to use and we’ve already been successful in expanding our application of it into areas beyond construction materials.

We have had several researchers become new NRC users because they want to access our Malvern Zetasizer Nano

The images from the Morphologi G3 provided compelling evidence that the particles, rather than the sizing method, were a root cause of observed variability.

After just four months, the Morphologi G3-ID is already heavily used by researchers and students throughout the university. The automated microscopy and image analysis functions are especially popular and have saved countless hours compared with using manual microscopy techniques.
Southern Cross University
The [Zetasizer Nano] instrument is robust, easy to use and data acquisition is straightforward. It is as close to ‘student proof’ as it is possible to be!

The technical support that we’ve received has been a deciding factor in our decision to continue to work with Malvern. Malvern systems also provide the cutting-edge performance and reliability that we need.
Domino Printing Sciences plc
The Zetasizer Nano has reliably delivered a substantial portion of data and continues to help drive our research.
As part of the multi-disciplinary lab at QMUL, materials and biomaterials research groups throughout the university, from engineers and chemists through to biologists and physicists, are benefiting from access to analysis using the Zetasizer Nano.
In a comparative assessment the Morphologi G3 delivered the perfect balance between speed of measurement, image resolution and price.
Dr. Robert Deffley
We’ve been running the Zetasizer APS continuously since 2012 and the real beauty is that we simply load the samples in multiwell plates, leave it to run, even overnight, and go back and pick up the results.
