By far the most important physical property of particulate samples is particle size. Measurement of particle size distributions is routinely carried out across a wide range of industries and is often a critical parameter in the manufacture of many products.
Measuring particle size distributions and understanding how they affect your products and processes can be critical to the success of many manufacturing businesses. Malvern Instruments offers leading instrumentation for all types of particle size analysis and characterization from sub-nanometer to millimeters in particle size.
Use the table below to help choose the right technology and particle size instrument for your needs:
Taylor Dispersion Analysis
0.2nm to >20nm
Dynamic Light Scattering
<1nm to >1µm
Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis
<30nm to >1µm
Resonant Mass Measurement**
<35nm to >2µm
<100nm to >2mm
Spatial Filter Velocimetry
<50µm to 6mm
<1µm to >3mm
*all particle size ranges are sample dependent
**particle size ranges are sample and sensor dependent.

The first in our particle size masterclass series will cover the basics of particle sizing, starting from the very beginning by covering what particles are and what properties of particles are important.
We will then look at definitions of particle ...
This virtual demonstration will give you a brief overview of Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA). Using NS300 hardware and NTA3.0 software, the analysis of a sample will be covered from sample introduction through to data export and interpretation i...
Particle size distribution is one of the key parameters in pharmaceutical powder processing.
Granulation – a common method for improving powder flow properties and reducing segregation is often not easy to develop, scale-up and control.
Analysis of pollen samples on the Morphologi G3 allows them to be automatically characterized in terms of both particle size and shape, aiding the distinction of different pollen types during the development and testing of immunotherapy or diagnostic...
Oral Solid Dosage (OSD) forms still represent a significant share of the pharmaceutical market. As a result, they remain an important target for generic product developers. In this white paper we introduce a workflow for OSD product deformulation and...
