Foreign Matter Analysis

Foreign Particulate Matter (FPM) contamination is an issue even in highly regulated and controlled environments such as the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries.

Presence of FPM can affect product quality, safety and efficacy, leading to loss of batches, product recalls and regulatory action.

Are you ready to find the source of your contamination?  

FPM can come from a variety of sources, its occurrence is unpredictable and controlling it can be difficult. Identification of FPM is the first step in determining its origin, which is essential for effective root cause investigations.

We have a dedicated team of scientists experienced in the forensic analysis of FPM.

With our in-depth knowledge and expertise in foreign particulate types and their origins, we can help with the characterisation of your contamination, identify any systemic issues and trends, and get you one step closer to achieving the ultimate goal of cleaner processes.
