It's a must have instrument for analytical lab
Application Area: Small molecule active pharmaceutical ingredients for various therapeutic conditions and indications
"Been using this instrument for a while now for particle size analysis of our small molecule APIs. The performance, accuracy & reproducibility is excellent. The amazing part is its ability to work with very small sample size. Very happy with the instrument."
The CAMSIZER X2 uses Dynamic Image Analysis to improve quality control of fine powders in a size range from 0.8 µm to 8 mm. The instrument provides precise and fast analysis of particle size and particle shape which helps to improve product quality, reduce rejects and save costs.
Correct sample preparation and dispersion of the particles before they pass the measurement field are as important as the actual analysis. Particularly for fine powders which tend to agglomerate, sufficient dispersion is crucial to the reliability of the measurement results. Therefore, various modes of sample feeding help to achieve separation of the agglomerates without destroying individual particles.
The modular X-Change System fulfils this requirement in a perfect way. With fine, agglomerating samples it is difficult to record the properties of a single particle. Therefore, it is important to have various possibilities of feeding the sample to the analysis area to be able to find for each material the optimum between the desired dispersion of the agglomerates and the undesired destruction of the individual particle. The CAMSIZER X2 offers three alternative dispersion methods: by gravity, by air pressure and in liquids. Thus, it is possible to choose the optimum method for each sample type.
