Complementary Techniques

SOLVE specialize in a selection of techniques. Depending on the need of the project, we also have the possibility to use a further range of techniques, either ourselves in-house or through co-operating with partnering companies. Some of the most commonly employed complementary techniques used are listed below.

Light microscopy and image analysis:

We co-operate with Imagene-iT when projects require microscopy and image analysis. ImaGene-iT are specialists withing the field of microscopy and image analysis. For more information about ImaGene-iT please go to

Electrion microscopy (TEM/SEM):

In co-operation with Imagene-It we can also have electron microscopy in various forms such as TEM and SEM performed during the course of a project.

Laser diffraction:

We co-operate with Adroit Science for several analytical techniques, such as particle size measurements by laser diffraction. Adroit are specialists in solid state characterization, .


We co-operate with Redoxis and Truly Labs when projects require the services they supply within in vivo and and in-vitro analysis. For more information please see and respectively.

Zeta-potential (in-house):

In addition to the size of particles the DLS offer the possibility to measure the zeta-potential of a compound.

Rheology (in-house):

SOLVE have long experience of rheological investigations of various complex samples.

HPLC and LC-MS (in-house):

HPLC and LC-MS are powerful analytical techniques that can give critical information in many projects.
