Laser diffraction is a powerful particle sizing technique that can provide users with a large amount of information related to their samples. However, there are several important aspects of the process that must be given the upmost attention, particularly before presenting the results in a written piece of work!

In this session we will consider the necessary steps to ensure optimal data quality, followed by the analysis of data, including the use of optical properties, and understanding the particle size distribution. This will be complimented with a look at tips on method development for wet and dry measurements, followed by a Q+A session.

Don’t forget to bring your questions or submit them by emailing or using the #MPexpert hashtag on Twitter. Questions and data can be submitted up to 10 days upfront.
