We are proud to announce that we have installed X-ray diffraction (XRD) instrumentation in our laboratory. XRD is a valuable tool for analysis and testing of materials used in pharmaceuticals, food, cosmetics, studies in nano materials, blood, forensics, geological grading of minerals, electronics etc. In fact the scope for application is so vast that it is difficult to mention them all here. However, our esteemed customers can now take full advantage of analysis conducted on XRD as the analysis can establish the purity of the testing material at various stages. Not only this but the technique used for XRD analysis in laboratories has a distinct advantage because it is possible to analyse even very small amount of samples.
XRD Analysis in Pharmaceutical Industry
In the pharmaceutical industry, XRD analysis plays an important role in the development of new drugs, as it helps to characterise active materials as well as tests material at different stages of manufacturing so that quality control is effectively maintained. All these procedures help to improve the formulation, analyse the compatibility of excipients, detect bioavailability and improve on factors of stability in different environments.
XRD Analysis in Food Industry
In the food industry several analytical techniques are used to monitor food additives in the manufacturing process. XRD provides information on polymorphism (occurrence in several forms), degree of crystallinity which influences hardness, density, transparency and diffusion of additives and amorphism (being available without crystallisation even in the minute particles). These three parameters are tested in foods so as to control the texture and stability of foods under different storage conditions. XRD is particularly useful in conducting studies on food ingredients to develop quality products and especially tests starches, fats, chocolates or candies. Quality is particularly important for development of foods so that they have the exact flavour, texture and taste and should not be over sweet, salty, sour or bitter.
XRD Analysis in Cosmetics Industry
Cosmetics are composed of a number of nano-particles to improve cosmetic features especially in lotions, soaps, toothpaste and conditioners. These cosmetics are popular but the compounds used in them can penetrate the skin and cause allergies and toxins. Therefore, XRD is used for testing nano particles for the safe development of cosmetics products so that their cosmetic features remain intact but products remain safe.
