Morphology Analysis

Morphology analysis and characterization.

Intertek offers advanced morphology analysis covering multiple techniques, for characterizing a wide range of materials. Experienced morphology scientists support research and development, failure analysis, quality control, troubleshooting and other complex scientific investigations.

Morphology analytical techniques available include microscopy, X-ray diffraction, thermal analysis, dynamic light scattering, porosimetry and interferometry. Services include elemental analysis of solid samples, impurities, and the identification of physical and chemical defects. Instrumentation is qualified to GLP and GMP standards, allowing the morphological data to be used in regulatory projects and pharmaceutical quality control.
