The Particulate Identification Database Solution For Your Foreign Particulate Matter and Root Cause Investigations

Reference databases containing spectral and chemical data of known materials are important in the source determination process of foreign particulate. For operations that generate numerous particulate with many lots and products, digital data storage is crucial to an efficient particulate characterization program. That’s why we offer the Particle ID Management System to all clients.

Our Particulate Identification Software: Particle ID

This particulate identification software, Particle ID, compiles, stores, searches, and mines enables the user to compile, store, search, and mine analytical data to optimize processes for foreign particulate and materials investigations. The ability to create internal known laboratory reference collections adds significant value to an investigation. ParticleID allows for analysis, comparison, and reporting.¹

How Particulate Identification Software Works

Whether the data utilized incorporate spectral or chemical information, or even production facility and manufacturing time across product lots with properly organized and managed information can lead to answers in analytical investigations.

For instance, it may help our scientists more quickly determine the root cause, or to exclude data from facilities that are determined not to be contributors to particulate problems.

Importance of Digital Data Storage

Reference databases can contain optical information, spectral data, chemical information, and essential information associated with non-conforming particles which allow for mining of data for comparison with known materials, as well as data mining, to determine common lots, facilities, times, or any other information that may aid in root cause analysis.

It should be noted that digital data management systems should fall within the overall compliance strategy of the company. Digital data is considered an electronic record and should be considered as such when collecting, altering, and using the information. Compliant commercial data management systems are available to assist in this effort.

Reference databases of known materials, process and product-related materials, and archived foreign particulate are important in the source determination process of foreign particulate. In a simple process with few particulate and few reference materials, a hard copy catalog with pictures and spectra may suffice.

However, for operations that generate numerous particulate with many lots and products, digital data storage is key to an efficient particulate characterization program.

Benefits of Our Particulate Identification Software

The ability to create internal known laboratory reference collections or utilize existing commercial databases adds significant levels to an investigation. All manufacturing environments contain a variety of different products, processes, and environmental sources of materials.

A robust data management system is critical to efficiently access the variety of materials needed to accurately identify the source of foreign materials. ParticleID offers the following benefits:

  • Sample Info: Sample information is easy to use data input allows for simple logging of samples and searching. Standard and customizable fields optimize the sample entry process and enhance searchability.
  • Results Data: Analytical data such as Optical Images, SEM/EDS, FTIR, Raman, etc. are stored with every sample for retrieval, and a side-by-side comparison to determine sources of unknown particulate.
  • Reporting: The database enables the user to compile, store, search, and mine analytical data to optimize processes for foreign particulate and materials investigations. Robust data management helps to efficiently find common sources of foreign material.
  • Comparative Data: Comparative analysis of information and analytical data is critical to any source determination. This database helps to quickly navigate and mine data. The advanced search function provides more capability for sorting and filtering.²
