Laser Diffraction Particle Size Analysis


Laser Diffraction Particle size analysisParticle size analysis with the Mastersizer 2000 has set the standard for simple, straightforward operation.

ITRI Innovation operates a Malvern Mastersizer 2000 and Zetasizer 3000HS for particle size analysis.

The Mastersizer 2000 particle size analyzer has set the standard for simple, straightforward operation. Modular in design, it has a wide range of automated sample dispersion units for the measurement of wet and dry samples. These are controlled through Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) providing ease of method development and transfer.

  • Broad particle size range suitable for many different applications.
  • Wide range of sample dispersion options for emulsions, suspensions and dry powders.
  • Fully automated simple SOP operation for ease of use and method transfer.

The Mastersizer 2000 uses the particle size analysis technique of laser diffraction to measure the size of particles. It does this by measuring the intensity of light scattered as a laser beam passes through a dispersed particulate sample. This data is then analyzed to calculate the size of the particles that created the scattering pattern.

The Malvern Zetasizer 3000 series carries out particle size analysis from below a nanometer to several microns using dynamic light scattering. It can also measure zeta potential.

ITRI Innovation’s UK lab service is experienced at providing particle size analysis test results, with a fast turnaround at very competitive rates using the Mastersizer and Zetasizer.
