Betatek is pleased to offer Horiba’s line of Particle Characterization instruments. 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.
