Pharmaceutical

Pharmaceutical manufacturing can benefit from Digital X-ray and Computed Tomography in a variety of ways. High resolution computed tomography can be used on individual pills or capsules to determine distribution of ingredients throughout the pill of capsule by segmenting components by size and/or density. In addition to pharmaceutical analysis, x-ray imaging can also be used to inspect finished product for contaminants (metal, glass, organics and other foreign material) and check product contents (missing components, fill level, partial component).

  • Common uses: process verification, product quality, foreign material, fill level, missing components.
  • Common products: capsules, pills, gel caps, medicine bottles.
