Accurate and reproducible results, especially with dry dispersion techniques from my experience.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Analyze of iron ore, chromite ore, coals, and many other types of samples

"Even though the instrument is an old model it has provided quality data with the ease of use with dry dispersion techniques. A bigger sample size is required, as compared to the latest model comes much smaller sample size. Results are accurate and reproducible. Great application for samples with a particle size less than 2mm. The maintenance of lens is very important and should be inspected and cleaned daily for quality background and analyses."

Best Particle Size Analyzer Out There
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Partice Size Analyses of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs)

"I have used/been responsible for the Malvern Mastersizer 2000 and Hydro 2000S instruments at three different companies over a span of about 15 - 20 years. I have only encountered a couple of the detector bands failing on the earlier models but overall they have been a sound workhorse that produced very reliable particle size data. The instruments are easy to use and understand and once trained properly, easy to clean. I have even demonstrated the use for the FDA during an inspection. I highly recommend this instrument if there is any interest in performing particle size analyses."

  • Application Area:Particle size distribution measurements for manufactured catalysts

"The Malvern Mastersizer 2000 offers excellent performance for our particle size distribution measurements. The instrument is easy to use and easy to clean. Malvern also offers great customer service. We have used their technical support over the phone several times to help diagnose an issue and each time they are helpful. The field service team also offers great customer service and has always gone above and beyond to answer all of our questions when they come to our facility to conduct the yearly performance verification. The instrument is quite pricey, but we have had our same instrument for 12 years now and regular maintenance has been all that has been needed. "

  • Application Area:Particle size analysis

"The Mastersizer 2000 is very easy to use and provides quick analysis of a wide range of particle sizes. I frequently use the Scirocco dry powder feeder, and it handles most samples without problems. It is capable of adding SOPs in order to use the same settings for frequently tested samples. I found the cost to be similar to competitive products. I can't comment much on the after sales services because we haven't had much need for service."

"Good Instrument"

Review date: 24 Jan 2006 | Mastersizer 2000
An instrument with a proven history over more than a decade as the world’s most widely used particle sizing instrument, the Mastersizer 2000 is still regarded as one of the most flexible and user friendly particle sizing instruments available.

The Mastersizer 2000 particle size analyzer has set the standard for simple, straightforward operation. Modular in design, it has a wide range of automated sample dispersion units for the measurement of wet and dry samples. These are controlled through Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), providing ease of method development and transfer.

Multiple SOPs can be developed on the same system and running the samples is reduced to single button operation. Method transferability assists not only large companies operating globally, but also in areas such as the standardization of materials specifications between supplier and customer.

The versatility and wide dynamic range of the Mastersizer 2000 make it suitable for a diverse range of applications. Configuring the system for individual use is entirely straightforward, as is changing between different measurement types.


Mastersizer 2000 Features:

  • Broad particle size range suitable for many different applications.
  • Wide range of sample dispersion options for emulsions, suspensions and dry powders.
  • Fully automated simple SOP operation for ease of use and method transfer.
  • Full validation documentation available including compliance with 21 CFR Part 11.
  • Backed up by extensive applications knowledge across many different industries.
