Crystalline PV

Seeing is believing

The Crystalline PV (particle viewer) combines temperature and turbidity measurements with real time particle imaging. With four independent real time particle viewers. With four or eight high quality digital visualization probes, seeing what is happening in the vial has never been easier: no moving parts, no cumbersome insertion probes. With a robust design, the probes are contained in a sealed, pre-aligned and sturdy environment, giving the user walk-up access to four or eight parallel particle view cameras.

  • Visualization of the complete crystallization or formulation processes
  • Real time particle size and shape information at the smallest scale

Find out what is happening

Have you ever wondered what is happening during crystallization or formulation? How do you know if the sample is aggregating, foaming or oiling out? Stop guessing: now you can see what is happening. You can easily correlate the turbidity signals with visual information – finally getting the complete picture of the crystallization or formulation processes.

  • Nucleation and induction time measurements
  • Polymorph and solvate screening
  • Monitoring of habit changes
  • Searching for less stable intermediates
  • Controlling growth of certain polymorphs
  • Develop and optimize your process
  • Optimize and control your formulation process

Control the process

Have you ever puzzled over off-line analytics, trying to figure out what happened during the process? With the real time particle viewer you know exactly what is happening, when it is happening. By making use of the accurate thermocycling program of the Crystalline PV, you can investigate and control any crystallization or formulation process.

  • Study nucleation and crystal growth
  • Investigate reaction rates
  • Monitor slurry conversions, oiling out, foaming, gelling, and aggregation
