Polymer Cleanliness Validation
At Lucideon we can validate the cleanliness of your products as well as validating your cleaning procedures. You need to ensure that your products are clean, and having an effective cleaning procedure in place can help to ensure your products are fit and safe for use.
Our cleaning validation services include:
- Gravimetric analysis – detect particles and a broad range of non-volatile residues present on the surface of polymer devices, including non-water soluble contaminants.
- X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) – identify the location of contaminants on polymer devices and detect extremely low levels of residues.
- Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (ToF-SIMS) – examine the top few layers of the polymer device’s surface by irradiating the sample with ion beams and analysing the emitted secondary ions.
