Archimedes, from Malvern Instruments, is a benchtop instrument that measures particle mass, concentration and size, from a few microns down to approximately 50 nm, by means of resonant mass measurement (RMM) — a technique that enables the analysis of protein formulations below the range accessible by optical methods.
Particles Plus has released its Air Quality Monitors — a line of particle counters that measure particle mass concentrations and total particle mass while monitoring and recording essential environmental conditions.
Syrris has launched the Atlas Nanoparticle System for the automated synthesis of quantum dots. The fully automated system offers complete control over temperature, mixing, dosing and sampling, allowing the production of nanoparticles with a narrow size distribution.
The POLA 2000 is a portable particle size and count analyser manufactured by Particle & Surface Sciences (PsS). The versatile, simple-to-use system features its own carry handle, a laptop computer and Windows software.
Researchers from the University of Adelaide are developing a portable, highly sensitive method for gold detection that would allow mineral exploration companies to test for gold on-site at the drilling rig.
Sequoia Scientific has released the LISST-Portable|XR, a portable particle size analyser with a built-in battery and touch panel display. The small analyser can be easily transported with one hand.
Malvern Mastersizer 3000 particle size analyser with Hydro Sight imaging accessory and Hydro SV wet dispersion unit28 November, 2014
The Mastersizer 3000 laser diffraction particle size analyser enables rapid particle size distributions for both wet and dry dispersions.
Physicists from The Australian National University have developed a spiral laser beam and used it to create a whirlpool of polaritons - hybrid particles that have properties of both matter and light.
An international research team has claimed that the Higgs boson particle, discovered in CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in 2012, could be something else entirely.
The Morphologi G3-ID, from Malvern Instruments, can accurately measure particles in the range of 0.5 to 1000 µm. An integrated dry powder dispersion system automates sample preparation for repeatable and reproducible measurements of a wide range of samples.
The Camsizer P4 is the systematic enhancement and optimisation of the Camsizer system for the determination of particle size and particle shape with dynamic image analysis. Based on dual camera technology, the product is said to offer improved performance and extended functionalities.
The Micromeritics SediGraph III Plus determines particle size by using the accurate and reproducible sedimentation technique which measures the gravity-induced settling rates of different size particles in a liquid with known properties. This is a simple yet effective technique for providing particle size information for a wide variety of materials.
The Particles Plus 5301 Remote Particle Counter can be easily integrated into a building automation and cleanroom management system via Ethernet or USB.
The Zetasizer NanoSampler is a compact sample delivery system for the highly precise and reproducible automated loading of samples into the Zetasizer Nano instruments.
Researchers at CERN have found evidence for the direct decay of the Higgs boson into fermions. This comes two years after the discovery of the particle and indicates that it behaves in the way the standard model of particle physics predicts.
