IMA/USP 788 Particulate Matter Pharmaceutical Microscopes

The United States Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) sets standards for the identity, strength, quality and purity of medicines, food ingredients and dietary supplements worldwide. USP's drug standards are enforceable in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and these standards are used in more than 140 countries.

The IMA/USP 788 is a test in the pharmaceutical industry for particulate matter in injections. Method 2 of this test is a Microscopic Particle Count Test. Microscope World carries microscopes that meet the standards required by IMA/USP 788 for the microscopic particle count test. The microscopes each have the required episcopic brightfield internal illumination and oblique illumination. Each specific microscope magnification factor (MF) is determined by Microscope World using a NIST certified stage micrometer in order to produce the custom IMA/USP 788 ocular micrometer that is calibrated and installed into the microscope prior to shipment. Each microscope includes a calibration certificate.
