The Mastersizer 3000 supports improved productivity through fast, fully automated measurement and cleaning, combined with instrument and data analysis software that streamlines every aspect of the instrument's use. In-built intelligence supports each measurement, from the outset through a successful conclusion. The system harnesses proven laser diffraction technology for an instrument suited for raw material and commodity handling requirements, and can be used by operators with different backgrounds and experience. It measures particles across a range from 10 nm to 3,500 µm, efficiently analyzing both wet and dry samples. Switching between sample types is simple with auto-locking dispersion cells and automatic system initialization. Real time feedback during method development accelerates the optimization of every measurement, with a developed method then locked down as a standard operating procedure (SOP) to secure validatable performance.
