The behavior of surfaces and interfaces play a key role when working on formulations of pharmaceutics.

Active ingredients of pharmaceutics must be introduced into the body in a bioavailable manner, which includes surface properties which guarantee that they are transported to the place at which they are resorbed. At the same time, interfacial chemical aspects are also relevant, for example to improve the ability of a tablet to dissolve or to form a stable emulsion in an ointment.

As a leading provider of instruments and services in the area of surface science, we help our customers solve their tasks, for example regarding:

  • wettability
  • sorption
  • powder granulation
  • emulsion behavior
  • adhesion
  • foam behavior

Our instruments: Technology meets science

Our instruments help people in research, development, and industrial quality control with the most diverse requirements. As a full-range supplier with a wide product portfolio, software-controlled measuring technologies for the contact angle and static and dynamic measurement of surface and interfacial tension are just as much part of our range as measuring instruments for investigating foams.

Our measurement services: Draw from our vast resources

We support our customers with various options:

  • Send in your samples
  • Measurement visit in a customer lab
  • Customer lab day at KRÜSS

As the probably biggest power users of our instruments, our Applications & Science team has enormous experience when it comes to carrying out precise analyses and finding solutions to complex tasks.

We perform analyses in accordance with a wide range of international standards and norms. In addition, we help quality managers in their processes by providing IQ/OQ for our instruments and measuring methods.

Our seminars and webinars: Expertise you can use

Our seminar team is made up of experienced scientists who love sharing what they know. They provide individual support and offer their services as expert contacts for theoretical and practical questions. Our seminars also leave plenty of room for sharing and dialog. We regularly host respected guest speakers with relevant insights into interfacial chemistry. Their presentations shed light on technical content by offering practical examples from the latest research and development.

We're always close to you

Our company is based in and originates in Hamburg (Germany), where we employ a staff of approximately one hundred. We have further subsidiaries in the USA, China, the United Kingdom, and France in order to be as close as possible to our customers. Furthermore, we have a dense distributor network which works flexibly and quickly to ensure that our products and our expertise are always close at hand.
