Particle Characterization

Particles are used in a range of products and manufacturing processes. For example, many foods are delivered as ground or dried powders. Pharmaceutical tablets are manufactured by compressing excipient and API (active pharmaceutical ingredient) powders. Liquid pharmaceutical formulations are delivered as emulsions where the droplet particle size is important. Fine chemicals and plastics are often shipped as powders for ease of handling. Nanoparticles are commonly employed in paints, coatings, and advanced materials manufacturing. Biological particles such as exosomes and viruses flow into and through our veins.

In order to explore these critical and fascinating materials, HORIBA designs, manufactures, and supplies state of the art particle characterization instruments. The data from these instruments enables many of the manufacturing processes relied upon today and allows innovators to explore the future of both biological and non-biological materials.

Every instrument across the five business segments must meet stringent requirements before the HORIBA name is attached. The Particle Characterization group of analyzers has incorporated this principle into each new design since entering the business in 1979. Relentless innovation united with high performance to attain the ultimate goal: a new standard in usability.
