Scientific applications services can make a difference in your research

Push your research beyond boundaries: With electron diffraction services from ELDICO Scientific, a faster and more efficient drug development is in reach.

Good news for pharmaceutical companies and their suppliers. Electron diffraction is a powerful analytical technology able to tackle solid state samples down to 10 nm crystallite size. It can extend the capabilities of any corporate research departments as well as the service portfolio of CROs, CDMOs and other analytical service providers supporting the global pharmaceutical industry.

We are happy to offer sensible solutions to all your questions across the drug development landscape with electron diffraction: press on the infographic below for a better view of all comprehensive applications ED paired with native instrumentation can tackle.


In its Customer Experience Center in Basel, ELDICO Scientific offers a broad range of services, from measurement-as-a-service to advanced scientific applications services and joint R&D projects. Our team of experienced application scientists are looking forward to discussing your projects with you.

This year we have successfully served dozens of clients among leading pharmaceutical companies with their challenging samples and helped them to accelerate their R&D operations.
