Mastersizer 3000 Particle Size Analyzer Makes Analytica Debut

Press release date: Mar 15, 2012

Analytica 2012; Stand No. A1.320

Malvern, UK: Malvern Instruments' new Mastersizer 3000 laser diffraction particle size analyzer will make its Analytica debut on Stand No A1.320 (April 17-20, Munich). This state-of-the-art, small footprint instrument is designed for smart particle sizing, delivering precise, high-resolution wet and dry sample measurement from 10 nm to 3.5 mm. New sample dispersion units provide a solution for every application, including the dry dispersion of fragile particles, while simple intuitive software drives user-defined measurements and simplifies method development.

Malvern's Morphologi G3 particle characterization system will also be on show. Understanding particle shape can have a significant impact upon the performance and process handling of many particulate materials. The Morphologi G3 image analysis system delivers both particle size and shape information, providing a wide range of morphological parameters for even greater detail in the analysis of particulate materials.

Malvern also has extensive expertise in the area of dispersion stability and is the only company whose analytical instruments cover the full array of measurements necessary for its comprehensive determination - this includes particle size and shape measurement, zeta potential and rheological parameters. As well as having the opportunity to discuss dispersion stability issues with Malvern's expert teams at Analytica, visitors to the Malvern stand can find out more about the application of particle and molecular characterization using dynamic light scattering with the Zetasizer series and Viscotek GPC/SEC systems, dynamic imaging with the Sysmex FPIA-3000, and Kinexus rheometers for the measurement of a wide variety of rheological parameters.

New this year at Analytica, visitors will also be able to see the Mastersizer 3000 in action in the polymer section of the Analytica Live Lab in Hall B1 throughout the show.
