Laser Diffraction Masterclass
Malvern's Laser Diffraction Masterclass seminar series provides users with a practical guide to the application of the Mastersizer 2000.
Starting with the basics of how laser diffraction works, the Masterclasses explain how to get the most from the Mastersizer 2000 system and the results it generates. Each year, a new set of seminars are presented, giving you the chance to listen to Malvern's experts and ask questions.
You can either register for the next live presentation in the series or access recordings of previous Masterclass seminars via the links below.
Masterclass seminars available:
Demystifying Laser Diffraction Measurements:An introduction to the basic principles of the technique of laser diffraction, explaining how measurements are carried out and how particle size distributions are calculated..
Achieving reproducible particle size measurements:Understand the requirements for sample presentation for laser diffraction measurements, with reference to the guidance provided in ISO13320-1 and USP<429>. This seminar includes practical examples of how the state of dispersion of wet and dry samples can be controlled.
Optical property selection made easy:In order to achieve realistic results using laser diffraction, users need to know the optical properties of the materials being characterised. This seminar describes the techniques available for measuring or estimating optical properties.
Validation of laser diffraction methods:It is important that the robustness of any analytical method is validated as part of a method development study, as this can highlight which method parameters are critical to the quality of a measurement. In this seminar, the process of method validation will be described, with reference to ISO13320 and USP <429>.
Setting realistic and meaningful product specifications:Are you responsible for interpreting particle sizing results in order to set product specifications? If so, this seminar will help you to understand how the data generated by the laser diffraction technique can be used in a QC environment, with specific reference to the requirements for specification setting within the pharmaceutical industry.
What to do when things have gone wrong!What should you do when a laser diffraction method appears to be producing incorrect results? This seminar covers some of the common problems associated with laser diffraction measurements, and provides some ideas as to how to bring a method back into control.
