Beckman Coulter, Inc., has extended the range of its LS 13 320 particle size analyzer to allow high-resolution, reproducible measurement of samples from 0.017 to 2000 µm. The enhanced LS 13 320 also adds Rosin-Rammler and Folk & Ward Phi methods to its standard analytical capabilities.
The instrument’s Tornado Dry Powder Dispersing System keeps sample particles intact, allowing true measurement of the original samples. Reproducibility is typically better than one percent. These features combine with the extended size range to provide high-accuracy/high-resolution detection without the risk of missing either the largest or the smallest particles in a sample.
The LS 13 320 differs from other laser-based instruments by virtue of its wide dynamic size range, number of detectors and sample measurement options. Reverse Fourier optics incorporated in a patented fiber-optic spatial filter system optimize light scattering measurement. Beckman Coulter’s Polarization Intensity Differential Scattering (PIDS) technology furthers detection capabilities in pharmaceutical, plastics, food and beverage, and a variety of other applications.
