The size distribution of emulsion droplets affects the stability, performance, and rheological behavior of the dispersion. Multiple measurements are required to optimize the formulation through to manufacturing steps.
This webinar will discuss the use of dynamic light scattering (DLS), zeta potential, and single particle optical sizing (SPOS) in the laboratory and then introduce a new online DLS system for in-process size distribution testing. Examples of results from pharmaceutical and beverage emulsions will explain how these measurement techniques are best used.
This webinar will cover a range of topics, including:
- Why emulsion droplet size distribution is important
- Basic emulsion formulation theory and testing
- Different particle sizing techniques
- The importance of detecting the tail of the distribution
- Unique requirements of pharmaceutical emulsions
- How online DLS process monitoring can optimize manufacturing
