Catalent Micron Technologies


Whether you’re in the early R&D or commercial phase, reliable, accurate particle size analysis is critical to the success of your compound. Rather than purchasing costly equipment or developing in-house expertise, many companies find that services specializing in drug substance testing can deliver more robust results, with staff experienced in particle size analysis.

Catalent offers a number of particle size testing options to support all production activities and as a stand-alone service for products that do not require micronization or milling.

Selecting a Particle Size Test

Catalent offers a range of characterization options along with the proven experience and guidance of their analytical team. Together, this ensures that the most appropriate and robust technique is chosen for your particle size characterization. Additional services and benefits include:

  • cGMP laboratories
  • Particle size distribution analysis
  • Sieve analysis
  • Study design guidance
  • Full release testing for commercial projects
