Particle concentration is one of the fields in which Meritics supplies systems designed to measure, analysise, and control of a broad range of properties and characteristics.
Knowing the number (concentration) of particles in a suspension such as tissue culture cells, bacteria, algae or protein aggregates is vital when looking at issues such as growth cycles or contamination. Particle concentration data is crucial for pharmaceutical manufacturing, water treatment, and agricultural soil analysis.
The Meritics range of instruments has been designed to meet the needs of every lab. Its Flowcam range of particle analysers provides a broad range of particle concentration methods for particles ranging from the sub-visible scale to 5,000 µm.
The Multisizer 4e is a versatile particle counter and sizing instrument with an expansive sizing range of 0.2 – 1600 micrometers (µm), providing particle concentration as well as size, volume, and surface area analysis. A 10 μm Aperture allows users to study sub-cellular and micro-particles as small as 200 nm, while the advanced noise reduction system for small apertures improves measurement accuracy.
Multisizer 4e uses the Coulter Principle (also known as Electrical Sensing Zone) to detect particles via electrical zone sensing, regardless of the particle’s nature or optical properties. This makes it suitable for detecting and counting a wide variety of particles, including mammalian cells, bacteria, yeast, abrasives, toner particles, cell aggregates, spheroids, and large protein aggregates.
