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.

Thie technical note provides advice to users engaged in transfering methods from the Mastersizer S or Mastersizer X to the Mastersizer 2000 sytem, covering issues such as analysis and optical model selection, dispersion control and result reporting.
This application note shows how rheology and particle size analysis can be used to characterize the properties of HA dermal fillers
This white paper offers practical guidance on using a range of analytical techniques, including rheology, particle size and zeta potential measurement to assist in the formulation of Inkjet inks.
Achieving product stability is a critical aspect of ink formulation. Modern inks are typically colloidal suspensions of multiple components in an organic or aqueous continuous phase. The functionality of the finished product relies on maintaining sus...
