The Sysmex FPIA-3000 enables reliable, repeatable and routine characterization of particle size and particle shape using automated imaging techniques.
Particle shape information is generated from the analysis of a large number of particles, displays of size and shape data are supported by a selection of images to provide further visual understanding of the measurement data. Particle shape provides an additional parameter to understand the source of manufacturing variations.
Measures materials from 0.8µm to 300µm.
For the measurement of emulsions, suspensions. Compatible sheath reagents include particle sheath reagent—aqueous based, methanol, ethanol, isopropyl alcohol and ethylene glycol solution (25%)
Controlled sample presentation
Sheath flow ensures all particles are separated and in focus. Unique flow cell design for unprecedented particle image quality and consistentparticle orientation.
Ease of use
Fully automated for ease of use. High through put – typical measurement completed in < 3 minutes.
User friendly software
Predefined measurement and analysis procedures ensure measurement reproducibility. Shape characterisation using multiple shape parameters. Unique particle size vs circularity scattergram provides sample finger printing. Particle classification facility. Data generated includes particle size and shape distributions and concentration. Stores images of particles with size data.
