Fast Visual and Chemical Analysis of particulate contaminants

We know that analyzing particulate contaminants in your pharmaceutical samples can be a real challenge. Wouldn't it be beneficial to instantly determine whether your particulate contamination is metal, glass or carbon? Have you ever wished you could obtain the material information you need directly from your light microscope?

If you are curious to know more, register for our webinar! Learn from our expert Dr. Konstantin Kartaschew how the intelligent combination of light microscopy with laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy will truly accelerate your root cause analysis workflow. You will discover how performing both visual (color and shape) and chemical (composition) analysis with your light microscope in a single work step will save you time and allow you to find the particle contamination source even faster.

Experience this firsthand during a live demonstration on typical pharmaceutical samples, and see how this works in practice. Feel free to take advantage of the concluding Q&A session to discuss your experience and pose your specific questions to our subject expert.

We look forward to welcoming you!

Dr. Konstantin Kartaschew,

Advanced Workflow Manager, Leica Microsystems

Konstantin is an Advanced Workflow Manager at Leica Microsystems. He studied Biochemistry at the Ruhr University Bochum (Germany), where he focused on various types of micro-spectroscopic analysis of biological, organic and inorganic samples. After his PhD in physical chemistry, he worked as a product specialist for spectroscopy at a major analytical instrument company, before joining Leica Microsystems in 2019 as a specialist for LIBS (Laser-induced Breakdown Spectroscopy) and other compound microscopy applications.
