The Olympus automated filter analysis system can identify, report and archive images and information on residual particles.
In a matter of minutes, the user receives statistical data relating to identified particles; the information is then documented and archived.
The fully automated system is a combination of hardware and software designed to provide detailed data in compliance with many ISO and USP international standards (in particular ISO 4406, 16232 and USP 788).
The Olympus automated filter analysis system consists of a microscope, digital camera and motorised stage with controller and analysis software.
Particle-by-particle data is provided on every inspection and records can be stored for an unlimited time.
Data storage is automatic and doesn't rely on users to remember how or where to archive data.
Other advantages include the system's adherence to key international and/or user-definable standards, speed, enhancement of data integrity and an automated one-touch function for ease of use.
The system is designed to work with standard 47mm filters.
'The Olympus system, in less than two minutes, accurately detects, counts, classifies and measures residue particulates in filters,' said Linda Sikel, product manager for industrial microscopes at Olympus America.
