Malvern Instruments Launches Morphologi G3-ID to Global Markets
Press release date: October 3, 2012
Malvern, UK: Following the completion of a highly successful early access program, Malvern Instruments has launched the Morphologi G3-ID particle characterization system to the global market. A live webinar on 2 October 2012 introduced participants to the unique capabilities of the system, which combines automated particle imaging with the chemical identification of individual particles using Raman spectroscopy. This fully automated system measures particle size, shape and chemical identity in a single platform.
The Morphologi G3-ID is ideally suited to solving complex particle characterization problems where particle size and shape do not provide sufficient information. The recent early access program was designed to enable users to explore specific applications and to allow full optimization of the product features. Key applications for which it is proving especially valuable are in determining component-specific particle properties of mixtures and blends, such as the particle size of drug ingredients in nasal sprays and asthma inhalers, and in the identification of unknown or suspicious particles in injectable or parenteral products, for example.
The Morphologi G3-ID is designed to meet a wide variety of needs and to enable all users, from particle characterization scientists with limited spectroscopy experience right through to experienced spectroscopists, to gain an in-depth understanding of particulate samples. Simple SOP operation takes the user from integrated sample dispersion for dry powders through to size, shape and chemical analysis, with automatic selection, targeting and chemical classification of thousands of individual particles. Measurements can be made on dry powders, suspensions and membrane filters.
