Particle size analyses are carried out in a LS13320 equipment by Beckman Coulter. Measurement sizes is between 40nm and 2mm.
The equipment has three analysis units:
- Tornado Dry Powder Module: Dispersion liquid is not required in this module and it is possible to determine a minimum particle size of 0.4 microns.
- Universal Liquid Module: This module allows to measure the size particle in different dispersion liquids and it is able to determine a minimum particle size of 40 nm.
- Micro Liquid Module: This model is suitable for small sample quantities in different dispersión liquids. The minimum particle size determined is 0.4 microns.
Laser diffraction analysis are performed according to ISO 13320:2009 Particle size analysis – Laser diffraction methods.
