What solutions do Malvern Panalytical offer?
Our main solutions for particle characterization are the Mastersizer 3000 and Morphologi 4, which are benchtop instruments with a high-level of automation. The Mastersizer 3000 uses the technique of laser diffraction to measure particle size distribution and this technique can also be employed on-line using Insitec. Morphologi 4 is an automated imaging system that use a digital camera to capture high-quality 2D images of a dispersed particles and provides particle specific size and shape information.
For elemental analysis we employ the technique of X-ray fluorescence which is available as floor standing (Zetium) and benchtop variants (Epsilon) depending on application requirements. For structural and crystallographic studies X-ray diffraction is our principal solution and is also available as a floor-standing (Empyrean) and benchtop (Aeris) system.
Omnisec is our main solution for determining the molecular weight and structure of polymeric materials, employing the technique of gel permeation chromatography.
Since introducing the Mastersizer 3000 we have been able to mill to an appropriate particle size to help eliminate issues with the intermediate materials going into a final productJulie Hart - BASF
