Malvern Instruments: Particle Size Analyzer

October 30, 2000
The new Sysmex FPIA-2100, a fully automated particle size and shape analyzer, is now available from Malvern Instruments Limited. Until now, the absence of a universal shape analysis technique has reportedly created difficulties in associating the function of particles with their shape characteristics - a problem the new system was designed to solve. According to the company, the system delivers particle size and shape distribution and, using a CCD camera, produces images of each particle as well as a scattergram of shape index versus particle size – in just five minutes.
