Client testimonials

Real-time monitoring of granule size during a continuous wet granulation process provided valuable morphological information as well the ability to track granule size change over time in response to variation in process and formulation parameters, which shows promise in using it for process control.

Dr. Arwa El Hagrasy, Purdue University

Client testimonials

The eyecon™ 3D particle characteriser has really helped us understand our process at a new level. The ability to acquire images and size distribution data of our spheroids in real-time is a significant improvement for this process. The savings we realized are significant and tangible

The Eyemap is a powerful tool for the fast detection, identification and quantification of trace quantities of pharmaceutical compounds.

Dr Carl Sullivan, Dublin Institute of Technology

Client testimonials

The eyecon™ is very fast, easy to use and amount of sample material needed to measurement is rather small. The eyecon™ can provide a very powerful tool for on-line particle measurements.

We prefer investing time interpreting data, not generating it!

Professor Gavin Walker, Professor of Chemical Engineering, Queen's University Belfast

Client testimonials

It is not just a particle size analyser, it provides shape information and images too.

Dr Chirangano Mangwandi, Lecturer in Chemical Engineering, Queens University Belfast

Client testimonials

It is not the quantity of data produced by the Eyecon (which is significant!), but the quality of that data that has lead us to informed decision making
