Microtrac MRB, a leading manufacturer of instruments for particle characterisation, and part of Verder Scientific, a division of Verder Group headquartered in Haan, Germany, has introduced the Microtrac MRB SYNC Analyzer. The new tool reportedly provides traditional users of laser diffraction technology with new capabilities to characterise their materials. 

According to the company, the tool’s tri-laser technology provides accurate and repeatable laser diffraction information from light detected over 163° of angular scatter. When combined with state-of-the-art camera technology capturing images of the particle stream at the same time, the SYNC Analyzer offers not only size data but also additional information about the shape of the materials and the quality of the dispersion.

In addition, the patented synchronous measurement technology of the SYNC allows users to conduct both a laser diffraction measurement and image analysis on a single sample, in the same sample cell and at the same time.

This is said to make the SYNC Analyzer ideal for both routine quality control and research applications, as it provides valuable information to researchers involved in the development of new materials and processes. The software interface offers both particle size distribution information and a multitude of morphological parameters, and the company’s patented BLEND routine allows users to examine materials over a wide size range from 0.01 µm to 4000 µm.
