The Mastersizer 2000 laser diffraction particle size analyzer reaches the end of its supported life in April 2022.
If you are a Mastersizer 2000 user, you need to act now to plan your upgrade.
What to do next
Complete the form to request an upgrade consultation, and our specialist teams will work as your partners to fully understand your needs and timescales. They will give information on our exclusive trade-in offers for Mastersizer 2000 customers and advise on your next steps, work with you to develop a transition plan and support you through to installation, commissioning and beyond.
Moving to the class-leading Mastersizer 3000 will provide you with immediate access to the extended capabilities of this smaller footprint, even easier-to-use system. Advance planning is critical to ensure sufficient time for a seamless transition as you migrate methods and complete all necessary validation in order to safeguard measurement continuity.
Malvern Panalytical is committed to supporting you every step of the way. Our industry specialists, technical, engineering and applications experts have experience in helping thousands of sites around the world to streamline this change.
What the end of Mastersizer 2000 support means for you
Manufacture of the system ceased in 2015 and Malvern Panalytical gave a commitment to fully support the Mastersizer 2000 for the following 7 years. Many of the electronic and hardware components used within the system are no longer manufactured by Malvern Panalytical’s suppliers. This means that, from April 2022, we will no longer be able to guarantee availability of the spare parts required to maintain the Mastersizer 2000.
How to ensure measurement continuity
Malvern Panalytical understands that the Mastersizer 2000 forms a critical part of our customers’ business processes. Failure to upgrade to a fully supported system in a timely manner puts measurement continuity at risk. This may jeopardize the ability of our customers to deliver their products or services to the quality standards they require.
Thousands of users have already made the successful transition from the Mastersizer 2000 to the Mastersizer 3000, many of them working in highly regulated environments. Experience shows that in regulated environments, extra time must be factored into the process to ensure on-time migration of critical methods and satisfactory completion of the more extensive validation requirements.
It is therefore imperative that all Mastersizer 2000 users ensure measurement continuity by upgrading to the latest technology ahead of the April 2022 deadline. To do nothing or delay transition planning risks measurement interruption that may directly impact business performance. Malvern Panalytical offers a proven, supported pathway for upgrading to Mastersizer 3000 that is tailored to your industry and your requirements, easing method transfer and preserving existing data.

Recently upgraded from the Mastersizer 2000... Overall, it's much easier to use, while providing us with the accuracy we need.Timothy T
The software makes the difference for this instrument. The smaller footprint of the 3000 versus the 2000 is noticeable however the software improvements are great….Matthew R
Results are of high quality, and reproducible. The Mastersizer 3000 is very user friendly, and an easy transition from the Mastersizer 2000.Jeffery H
Best value for any instrument in its class (laser diffraction) for powder particle size distribution. It is extremely easy to use. The automated SOPs allow for highly reproducible results for both wet and dry dispersion analysis. Switching between the wet and dry modules is a fast and simple process. It takes up very little bench space. The software is user friendly and free updates. Almost infinite customization of the reports. The software makes it so simple to create your own reports. My reports have impressed everyone I've given them to (you can even add pictures such as SEM). It is an amazing instrument to say the least.Justin H.

The transition between Mastersizer 2000 and 3000 was very smooth… After sales service and technical support is excellent. Overall, we love the instrument and it’s a good addition in the lab.Jignesh D
Malvern Mastersizer 3000 is one of the best instruments for determination of particle size for powders, granules, both in solid dispersion and in liquid dispersion. The instrument is very user friendly and easy to use as the principle of operation of the instrument is very simple and robust. The data generated on the instrument is very reliable and accurate. Method development on the instrument is very simple and gives reproducible results time and again...Mahesh S.
In comparison with the MS2000, the MS3000 is a lot easier to use. The updated software is simpler. We cut down our measurement time down to 1/3 and it's a space saver.Thanh H
This is our third unit purchased and we are very pleased with both the reliability of the unit itself and service provided by Malvern Instruments. We are characterizing particles ranging in size from 15 micron up to 90 microns and the unit has provided us with the ability to review an infinite range of sizes giving us reliable quantitative results.Tyrone T.
