Leading to competitiveness through innovation in medical devices, biomaterials, and processes.

Morphological and Topographical analysis of materials

Rescoll can help you to select appropriate analytical methods for your medical device through a literature study or using our expediencies…

  • AES : Auger Electron Spectroscopy including scanning tunneling auger
  • BET : Brunauer-Emmett-Teller, a porosity measurement methodology
  • DMTA : Dynamic Mechanical Thermal Analysis
  • DSC : Differential Scanning Calorimetry
  • EPMA : Electron Probe Microanalyser
  • ESC : Equilibrium Solvent Content
  • EWC: Equilibrium Water Content
  • EDX-SEM : Energy Dispersive X-ray Analysis — Scanning Electron Microscopy
  • FTIR : Fourier Transform Infra Red (spectroscopy) including microscopy, imaging and diffuse reflectance
  • FTIR-ATR : Fourier Transform Infra Red (spectroscopy) -— Attenuated Total Reflectance (multiple internal reflectance)
  • IR : Infra Red (spectroscopy)
  • OM : Optical Microscopy including polarized light and phase contrast microscopy

These analytical methods are useful and available at RESCOLL  to obtain quantitative and/or qualitative information on product to establish the material equivalence compared to a clinically established original product or to characterize a new product.
