Particle Size Distribution Analysis: Importance of Good Sample Preparation & Sample Handling

Webinar Date
  • Tue July 14, 2020
    2:00 PM GMT 1 hour

Over the last twenty years or so, laser diffraction has emerged as a widely accepted technique for particle size analysis across different segments. The various advantages of the technique like wide dynamic range, high sample throughput, the robustness of results and regulatory acceptancy make it popular in both the R+D environment and QC departments.

Sampling and sample preparation are the most critical part of a particle size analysis method but unfortunately given the least weightage. This part of the webinar series will cover importance of sampling, different sample preparation techniques and how inconsistent sampling techniques might impact results
