Do More—With Less

Combining two powerful technologies into a single innovation, the Aura family of instruments expands what you can accomplish when you can conduct particle analysis at high throughput with low sample volumes.

Do it all

Because Aura instruments work on as little as 5 µL, you can analyze particles earlier in development when you’re working with limited volumes, identifying potential liabilities when it’s easier to re-prioritize.

Aura instruments are also able to support later development activities as they are compliant with USP 788 compendial particle measurements.

Backgrounded Membrane
Imaging—How It Works

See every visible and subvisible particle in your sample—even the transparent ones missed by other methods—with innovative BMI technology.

Actual FMM image of a heterogeneous particle sample

Fluorescence Membrane Microscopy—How It Works

With the FMM technology that’s part of Aura particle analyzers, you can uncover particle identity for faster, more streamlined development.

Side Illumination Membrane Microscopy (SIMI)

Interrogate and characterize for extrinsic and inorganic particles like glass and metals, which are the leading cause of drug product recalls.
