Agilent Announces Acquisition of Particle Sizing Systems (posted 8/13/08)
“With the growth of products based on nanomaterials -- from medicines to diesel fuel catalysts -- understanding the size of these particles is increasingly important for the manufacturer to both control product performance and stability, and to understand the impact of these new materials on the environment,” said Mike Gasparian, vice president and general manager of Agilent’s Materials Science Solutions Unit. “Agilent now offers customers instruments that measure a large spectrum of particles.”
Particle Sizing Systems designs and manufactures instruments that provide highly accurate particle size measurements using industry-standard laser light scattering technology. Proprietary algorithms and patents provide superior characterization of particle size distribution, with the ability to measure both large and small particles in the dispersion.
