Instrument Corporation recently announced it will begin marketing an auxiliary
selection of OEM laboratory instruments to complement its line of particle characterization
products. These products will be sold under the umbrella brand, Particulate
Systems, in order to unite them under a single identity.
Micromeritics’ first product addition under the Particulate Systems brand
is the new Particle Insight size and shape analyzer. The Particle Insight is
ideal for applications where the shape of raw materials, not just the diameter,
is critical to the performance of the final product. The Particle Insight offers
up to 28 different shape parameters analyzed in real-time in either aqueous
or organic solvent suspensions. The system operates in a range suitable for
a wide variety of industrial, biological, and geological specimens from 3 µm
up to 300 µm in its standard configuration. Its unique recirculating sample
module and precision optics are designed to acquire and report statistically
valid measurements quickly, an essential quality control capability in many
manufacturing processes. In addition, the Particle Insight fulfills the requirements
of FDA 21 CFR Part 11 regulations.
Particle Insight features include the ability to track sample shape changes
over time as well as the capability to store a collection of particle images.
The user also has the option of viewing only those particle images that meet
any combination of the analyzer’s 28 shape parameters.
Micromeritics is excited about the addition of its Particulate Systems brand
and is looking forward to meeting customer demands by adding a variety of products
to its already extensive line of particle characterization instruments.
