In Particle Sizing, Static and Dynamic Imaging Provide Pros and Cons

If a product or industry involves particles, and most do, someone analyzes the size of those particles.

As Deborah Huck-Jones, product manager for analytical imaging at Malvern Instruments in Malvern, United Kingdom, says, “Particle sizing is ubiquitous across industry.” The size and shape of particles can change, for instance, how foods taste or how pharmaceuticals perform. Both static and dynamic image analysis can be used to assess particle size. An image from a microscope can be used for static analysis, and dynamic technology captures image information from a sample in motion. The choice often depends on the sample. “For powders, like pharmaceutical ingredients, you might use static image analysis,” says Mark Bumiller, regional sales and marketing manager at Particle Sizing Systems in Huntington Beach, California. “People probably go to a dynamic method for suspensions, like protein aggregations in some new therapeutics.”
