Not just a new instrument – a new Mastersizer 

14 September 2011: Malvern, UK: Raising particle sizing to a smarter level, the new Mastersizer 3000 from Malvern Instruments delivers unique performance and productivity advantages, wrapped in a stylish, compact and practical instrument design. Now anyone can make good measurements and get exactly the data they need quickly and easily.

With an extended dynamic range that spans 0.01 to 3500 microns, the Mastersizer 3000 laser diffraction particle size analyzer delivers precise, robust wet and dry measurements right across the milli-, micro- and nano-meter size ranges. Smart design of the new optical core packs this high performance into a small footprint system that boasts equally well-engineered sample dispersion accessories, including an entirely novel dry powder dispersion unit. Such flexibility makes the system ideal for the multitude of particle sizing applications for which laser diffraction is now the technique of choice.

Friendly and intuitive software drives every Mastersizer 3000 measurement, bringing operator- independent analysis and offering data generation tailored to individual customer needs, with presentation options as diverse as the industries it serves. The process of method development has been streamlined, with access to Malvern’s extensive know-how provided when and where it is needed. This is all backed by gold standard applications support from Malvern teams around the world, whose collective experience is second to none.

“We are very proud to be launching the Mastersizer 3000, a brand new system that is a product of the customer focus and technical excellence behind more than 10,000 Mastersizers already in use around the world,” said Malvern Managing Director Paul Walker. “Few people now have the luxury of becoming specialists in a particular laboratory technology, and the smart approach of the Mastersizer 3000 means you can make accurate, reliable measurements whether you are a complete novice or a particle sizing expert. Such robustness and flexibility supports laboratories in achieving the cost-effectiveness and productivity required today.”
