Micromeritics, a leading supplier of materials characterization analytical laboratory instrumentation and services, has created a new YouTube channel dedicated to the science of materials characterization. Initially, the company's main focus is to provide a series of educational videos defining various physical characterization techniques for powders and solids.
In fact, the channel was recently introduced with a three-part video series covering physical adsorption. Micromeritics will also occasionally post informational videos describing its products and services. Additional material will be developed in response to subscriber comments and suggestions.
In business since 1962, the company manufactures a broad line of automated laboratory instruments that measure physical characteristics of powders and solids for fundamental research, product development, quality assurance and control, production, and process control applications. Measurements obtained include particle size, particle shape, surface area, pore volume, pore size and pore size distribution, material density, catalytic activity, and temperature-programmed reactions. Micromeritics markets an auxiliary selection of materials characterization instruments under its Particulate Systems brand. Micromeritics also operates Micromeritics Analytical Services and Micromeritics Pharmaceutical Services, both providing contract sample analyses and consulting services.
The Micromeritics YouTube channel promises to be a useful educational tool for students, educators, lab technicians, scientists, and anyone interested in the science of materials characterization. Visit the Micromeritics YouTube channel at
