Characterization of Sub-Visible Particles in Protein Therapeutic Formulations
Sub-visible Particles from ViewSizer 3000
The ViewSizer® 3000 enables scientists to visualize and quantify the kinetics of protein aggregation in real-time for biologic therapeutics under a variety of stress conditions.
Fast & Non-invasive Determination of Skin State
Fast and non-invasive determination of skin
Biological tissues contain chromophores that absorb light, as well as fluorophores that absorb and reemit light (fluorescence effect). Light absorption depends on the chromophores’ content and their distribution within the organic matter.
Analytical Chemistry in Pharmaceuticals and Medicine Manufacturing
Investigating photocleavage using time‐resolved emission spectra
The choice of protecting group is of crucial importance in the success of many steps in organic synthesis and the manipulation of polyfunctional molecules, since they can prevent the formation of undesired side products and reactions.

Cosmetic Applications
Many cosmetic products include particulate material or emulsions. Some examples of cosmetic products consisting of or including particulates include facial powders, moisturizers, and lipstick. The particle size distribution of these components effects appearance, stability, and protection.
Valuable analysis tool for cosmetics and skin characterization
Valuable analysis tool for cosmetics and skin characterization
Confocal Raman Spectroscopy is an important analytical tool in various fields and it has shown high efficiency for specific applications in the cosmetic and/or pharmaceutical fields. Its non-invasive behavior, and its high molecular sensitivity make it one of the preferred label-free analytical techniques to characterize materials such as skin and cosmetic products.
Particle Size and Shape for Ointments and Creams
This study utilizes the PSA300 automated image analysis system to quantify the size and shape of various ointments and creams.
Fast & Non-invasive Determination of Skin State
Fast and non-invasive determination of skin
Biological tissues contain chromophores that absorb light, as well as fluorophores that absorb and reemit light (fluorescence effect). Light absorption depends on the chromophores’ content and their distribution within the organic matter.
Visualizing dental caries using fluorescence lifetime microscopy
Teeth are naturally fluorescent and changes in their composition, caused by decay for example, affect their fluorescence behavior.
Endogenous Skin Fluorescence In Vivo on Human Skin
The fluorescence spectra of intrinsic protein fluorophores have been studied extensively and used in investigating biological events.
Noninvasive In-Vivo Determination of Sunscreen-UVA Protection Factors
Noninvasive In-Vivo Determination of Sunscreen-UVA Protection Factors
The development and evaluation of UVA (320–400 nm) sunscreens is important because UVA sunlight can penetrate deep into human skin and cause severe internal damage, as well as erythema and photoaging.
In Vivo Raman measurements of Human Skin
Confocal Raman spectroscopy is beginning to be recognized as a high potential technique for the non invasive study of biological tissues and human skin under in vivo conditions. Raman spectroscopy can be applied to obtain information regarding the molecular composition of the skin down to several hundred micrometers below the skin surface.
