Micro particle size analyser for wet samples
Chemical Materials Design

The Mastersizer can measure the particle size of wet samples (samples within a suitable dispersant) within the 10nm-3.5mm range or dry samples (samples dispersed in an inert gas) within the 1-3500μm range.

This is a static light scattering (SLS) technique where a dispersed sample is illuminated with a laser and a series of detectors accurately measure the intensity of light scattered by the particles. A combination of red (633nm) and blue (432nm) lasers enables a large particle size range of 10nm-3.5mm to be measured. A range of sample dispersion units are available for small samples (5.6mL) up to large sample volumes (1000mL).
