Morphologi G3

The Morphologi G3 provides an advanced yet easy to use particle characterization tool for the measurement of particle size and particle shape from 0.5 microns to several millimeters. In one instrument it offers the flexibility required for R&D and troubleshooting applications, and user-independent results and the validation required for automated QC analysis. The technique is often used in conjunction with laser diffraction particle sizing, to gain a deeper understanding of product or process behavior.

  • The option to select the Thin-path wet cell for SOP measurement and in the manual microscope interface.
  • A Manually Targeted Raman feature where users are able to return to selected particle(s), and collect a number of spectra from each particle by repositioning the laser, trying different acquisition settings, removing background contribution. The best spectrum is then selected to be saved and associated with the particle image.
  • The ability to perform a ‘grab and analyze’ morphological measurement and then a Manually Targeted Raman measurement which is particularly useful for method development.
  • A direct export link to KnowItAll® from Wiley a spectral search software and database containing over 13000 Raman spectra to aid identification of unknown particles.
  • The export of Chemical correlations scores along with exported particle details

Accessories

The characterization of particles in suspension is a subject of interest for a variety of applications. For example, in pharmaceutical products the presence of inherent, extrinsic or intrinsic particles may affect the efficacy or possibly the safety of the drug. In the automotive industry, the presence of particulate contamination in hydraulic fluid power systems interferes with lubrication and causes wear to components. Many standards specify microscopy analysis for the enumeration of foreign particles in suspensions, and define particulate count limits for a given volume of sample.

Malvern Panalytical's range of sample presentation accessories for the Morphologi G3 expands the capabilities of this system beyond the characterization of dry sample dispersions. Each accessory fits directly into the Morphologi G3’s automated stage and is easily selectable in the software.

Accessories to use when analyzing particles in suspension

Thin-path wet cell

The thin-path wet cell is designed for both morphological and chemical characterization of up to 100 μL of sample. It is ideal for applications such as the identification of subvisible particles in therapeutics (described by guidance in USP <787> and USP <788>), especially when a traditional membrane filtering approach may risk changing particles of interest, such as protein aggregates.

Wet dispersion cell

The wet dispersion cell allows between 2 ml and 6 ml of sample to be analyzed. This is particularly useful for characterizing larger particles or where volumetric particle count is important.

2-slide and 4-slide holders

‘Sandwiching’ a few μL of a suspension of smaller particles between a microscope slide and a cover slip is a traditional method of sample preparation for microscopy. Samples are presented in this form to the Morphologi G3-ID using either the 2-slide or 4-slide holder. Slides suitable for chemical identification applications are available.

Twin 35 mm petri dish holder

The twin 35 mm petri dish holder provides an alternative means of measuring suspended particles that may be at risk of being deformed when dispersed into a cell.

Accessories to use when analyzing particles captured on a membrane filter

25 mm and 47 mm diameter filter holders

Methods which are used to detect and characterize particles in suspension often rely on filtering the sample in order to capture particles on a membrane filter. Dedicated filter holders (25 mm or 47 mm diameter) and also the 2-slide holder (see above) allow samples on filter membranes to be presented directly to the Morphologi G3-ID for analysis.
