Detecting agglomerates within pharmaceutical formulations

Particle agglomeration can compromise the clinical efficacy of pharmaceutical products and must therefore be closely controlled. Automated particle image analysis provides one technology which can aid agglomerate detection. This article provides practical guidance on how imaging can be applied as a routine method to robustly identify and quantify the state of agglomeration of pharmaceutical formulations.
