PolyCHECK® Foreign Material
& Particle Identification Service

Introducing the PolyCHECK® Foreign Material & Particle Identification Service

Tired of chasing down elusive Foreign Material (FM) or visible particle contamination in your cleanroom? Foamtec’s PolyCHECK® system is your secret weapon for identifying and eliminating contamination sources.

Why Quality Control Experts Love the PolyCHECK® Identification System

• Actionable Insights: Get detailed analysis of FM composition and origin, enabling targeted corrective actions.
• Reduced Costs: Minimize yield losses, device rejects, and CAPAs with effective FM prevention.
• Fast and Efficient: Collect samples from large or small surfaces quickly, without shutting down production.
• Non-Disruptive: Unlike traditional methods like SEM stubs, Polycheck won’t disrupt your workflow.


The PolyCHECK System is Ideal For:

• Pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturing
• Semiconductor and microelectronics industries
• Any critical cleanroom environment


The PolyCHECK® FM service has been successful in the following situations:

  • Spikes in reject and rework rates in medical device manufacturing despite airborne particle counts being within specification.
  • Identifying the specific source of organic-based fiber contamination in medical device, GMP and microelectronic cleanrooms.
  • Identifying specific processes that generate dark foreign particles in parenteral drugs.
  • Closing open CAPAs with a root cause solution at medical device and GMP pharmaceutical facilities.
  • Compliments USP 788, USP 789, USP 790 and USP 1788 methods.
  • Solving scratch defects, backside wafer contamination and particle escalation events in wafer fabs.

Unlike traditional analytical techniques which fall short of providing a definitive source of the particle contamination, the PolyCHECK® system is production-proven at matching the contamination found on the product to specific processes and material sources.

If your facility has been unable despite spending huge resources to identify sources of foreign material contamination, the PolyCHECK® FM Process can assist you.
