Mapping Drug Distribution in Pharmaceutical Products

You are a chemical scientist and you want to image in a label-free manner chemical compounds in complex formulation or pharmaceutical tablets. Lightcore Technologies BondXplorer microscope provides a versatile and tunable platform to image chemical compounds through their vibrational signatures [350cm-1, 3800cm-1].

BondXplorer: Image of pharmaceutical tablet containing three excipients (PEG, Manitol, Starch) and two polymorph active molecules (A-F1 and A-F2).
