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:

size range*











Dynamic Light Scattering
<1nm to >1µm


Resonant Mass Measurement**
<35nm to >2µm



<100nm to >2mm



<1µm to >3mm


*all particle size ranges are sample dependent
**particle size ranges are sample and sensor dependent.
