Micromeritics 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.
