Malvern Instruments marked the second anniversary of the Mastersizer 3000 laser diffraction particle sizing system with the introduction of a range software updates and an extension to the Mastersizer family, the Mastersizer 3000E.
The Mastersizer 3000 delivers unique performance and new productivity benefits. New software features, developed in response to customer feedback, now make it easier to obtain accurate particle size information. They also deliver an interface experience that compliments the modern app-led approach. Mastersizer software is now available in eight languages to ensure full accessability for users around the world.
Paul Kippax, Product Group Manager at Malvern said, “One of the functions I am most pleased with, because it makes a huge difference to so many of our users, is the new mimic mode for method transfer. This makes it easy to replicate the analysis range of other systems – not just from Malvern but also from other manufacturers. We’ve also introduced a standard operating procedure play list, which allows samples to be measured in different states of dispersion as part of an automated measurement, for example as part of method development. All these features, as well as the new tools for notifying maintenance requirements and for providing service support, help to promote and safeguard productivity over the lifetime of the instrument”.
With a range spanning 0.01 to 3500 mm, the Mastersizer 3000 delivers precise, robust wet and dry particle size measurements tailored to the operator’s specific application needs. The new Mastersizer 3000E, with a measurement range of 0.1 to 1000 mm, is offered with semi-automated wet dispersion units. Its performance can be extended over time, with add-on software packages providing users with access to automated dispersion units and the advanced analysis and method development support capabilities of the Mastersizer 3000.
