Abstract

The use of desktop X ray microtomography (XMT) to characterize randomly packed pharmacheutical particulate systems was discussed. The XMT work was performed using a 1072 Sky Scan desktop system. Glass spheres were used for the particle packing experiment with an average particle size of 200 μm transferred to borosilicate glass capillary tubes of 3 mm diameter. The 2D X-ray tomography images showed clearly defined spheres contained in capillary tube.
