1/6/2010 11:38:05 AM

BETHLEHEM, Pa., Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Particle Sciences Inc. (PSI), a leading pharmaceutical CRO, is adding to its formulation and characterization abilities through a cooperative agreement with HORIBA Scientific. Under the agreement Particle Sciences will acquire a HORIBA Raman/Particle Characterization System. This multimodal imaging system is a breakthrough apparatus that combines the chemical selectivity of Raman spectroscopy with particle size and morphology characterization from Clemex Technologies, Inc. According to Dr. Robert Lee (VP, Pharmaceutical Development at PSI), "Particle Sciences works extensively with combination products and other formulation systems where precise location of the API and its particle size are of critical importance. This new device will enable us to approach this question with a robust and validatable system." According to Dr. Andrew Whitley (VP, Sales at HORIBA), "We are confident that PSI, with its broad range of challenging products, will be a tremendous asset in demonstrating the unique characterization capabilities enabled by combining the two powerful techniques of particle analysis and Raman chemical imaging in a single system."

The HORIBA Group of worldwide companies provides an extensive array of instruments and systems for applications ranging from automotive R&D, process and environmental monitoring, in-vitro medical diagnostics, semiconductor manufacturing and metrology, to a broad range of scientific R&D and QC measurements. Proven quality and trustworthy performance have established widespread confidence in the HORIBA Brand. Part of the HORIBA Group, HORIBA Scientific is the world leader in Raman spectroscopy, having pioneered commercial Raman systems and designing and manufacturing them for over four decades. We provide complete micro and macro Raman solutions for analytical measurements, research and industrial applications. Our instruments are found in universities and industry across the world.
