EDX: A Fast & Simple Technique for Pharmaceutical Elemental Analysis

Duration: 90 minutes

AA or ICP-OES/MS is often viewed as the golden standard to analyze elements during the pharmaceutical manufacturing process, from drug discovery to the QA/QC of final formulations. While extremely accurate, these techniques have the downside of requiring the sample to be in liquid form when analyzing, resulting in a very arduous sample-preparation process and long analysis time.

In this seminar, we would introduce Energy-Dispersive X-Ray Fluoroscopy (EDX) as an alternative technique to perform elemental analysis that requires little sample preparation, is easy to use and can provide results quickly; and how it could be used in various areas of the pharmaceutical industry.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding how EDX can be used to perform elemental analysis
  • Understanding how EDX can be used in the Pharma Industry
  • Advantages of using EDX for elemental analysis
