Single Particle Explorer Enhances Sub-Visible Particulate Detection

West Analytical Services, LLC is pleased to announce that it has completed testing on a new single particle explorer instrument, the Hound™ particle identification platform from Unchained Labs, helping to enhance the scientific team’s ability to detect and identify particulate in drug products and components. The instrument combines microscopy, Raman and Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) to identify visible and sub-visible particles by their chemical footprint, which is then referenced to a customizable database for identification.
