Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) is widely used in the pharmaceutical industry to investigate the microstructure, surface topography and chemistry of a range of organic and inorganic ingredients. It provides visual information of micrometer and sub-micrometer particles including shape, size, morphology, and elemental composition. SEM imaging of raw pharmaceutical ingredients also reveals whether the ingredients are individual particles or aggregates.

SEMs are the industry standard in materials science for research, quality control, and failure analysis. In modern materials science, investigations into nanotubes and nanofibres, high temperature superconductors, mesoporous architectures, and alloy strength, all rely heavily on the use of SEMs for research and investigation.
