At Lucideon, we have worked on many different and diverse projects across a wide range of materials and industries. Read here about some of the work we have done.
One of our clients was experiencing issues with fragility of their tableted products. This caused tablets to break up on the conveyor belts prior to packaging, leading to excess wastage. We immediately set about understanding their individual situation in more detail. The issues were intermittent and there were numerous variables in the process that could have been contributing to this issue.
Lucideon was approached by Nobel Biocare to characterize the surface chemical composition of medical implants to quantify the surface concentration of hydroxyl groups on the surface.
GSK Consumer Healthcare wanted to compare the effect of two stannous fluoride containing toothpaste formulations (GSK’s Sensodyne Sensitivity and Gum and another marketed product) in terms of dentine tissue loss.
Using our internal knowledge, and guided by the various FDA guidance documents on cleanliness and disinfection, we developed a testing and validation strategy, along with the corresponding protocols
