MasterSizer 3000


The MasterSizer 3000 equipment from Malvern Panalytical is a particle size analyzer which uses laser diffraction to infer the size of particles. It measures the intensity of laser light scattered by a dispersion of particulate sample. The data is then analyzed to calculate the size of the particles that created the scattering pattern. More information about the instrument can be found here.
