As particle sizing methodologies grow ever more sophisticated, it is becoming increasingly difficult to measure the degree of resolution offered by the latest instruments. Image analysis methods, for example, offer one of the highest resolutions available today but until now it has been difficult to quantify the resolution.
At ACHEMA 2009 (11–15 May; Frankfurt, Germany) Whitehouse Scientific will launch a new Multimodal Standard that is designed to address this challenge. In this standard, eight distinct peaks have been produced between 500 and 2000 microns.
For very small particle sizes, a Multimodal Standard with ten peaks between 0.1 and 1.5 microns has been prepared for evaluation.
