An instrument with a proven history over more than a decade as the world’s most widely used particle sizing instrument, the Mastersizer 2000 is still regarded as one of the most flexible and user friendly particle sizing instruments available.
The Mastersizer 2000 particle size analyzer has set the standard for simple, straightforward operation. Modular in design, it has a wide range of automated sample dispersion units for the measurement of wet and dry samples. These are controlled through SOPs, providing ease of method development and transfer.
The Mastersizer 2000 uses the technique of laser diffraction to measure the size of particles. It does this by measuring the intensity of light scattered as a laser beam passes through a dispersed particulate sample. This data is then analyzed to calculate the size of the particles that created the scattering pattern.
A typical system is made up of three main elements:
When you purchase a Malvern product we understand that this is just the first stage of a working relationship that will last for the lifetime of the instrument. Some customers just need to ask an occasional question or to download a software upgrade, whilst others require a comprehensive support contract with priority call out and fixed cost of ownership. Whatever your situation Malvern will provide the right support for you.

With QbD now embedded in the psyche of the pharmaceutical industry its application is extending beyond the product development pathway. Analytical instrumentation and methods are increasingly the focus of attention. Here Paul Davies and Paul Kippax ...
The Dispersion Index and Dispersion Index RSD measured by Hydro Sight allow a user to monitor changes in the dispersion state of their samples by detecting subtle changes in the disorder of sample image frames. Hydro Sight therefore provides a valuab...
Getting a sample to a stable and reproducible state of dispersion is an important part of method development when carrying out particle size analysis. In this application note we show how the Mastersizer’s Hydro Sight accessory can be used to visuali...
How can you choose between the Mastersizer 3000 and the popular Mastersizer 2000 system? This white paper outlines the new capabilities of the Mastersizer 3000 and the support Malvern provide to help you transfer methods from the Mastersizer 2000.
