Designed for users in industries ranging from mining to battery manufacture, additive manufacturing and pharmaceutical quality control.

Malvern Panalytical, a provider of scientific instrumentation for the chemical, physical and structural analysis of materials, has added a new laser diffraction particle sizing instrument to its portfolio. Named Mastersizer 3000+, the analytical system integrates artificial intelligence (AI) and data-science-driven software solutions for method development support, data quality feedback, instrument monitoring, and troubleshooting advice.

The new device is equipped with a new feature, Size Sure, which represents a paradigm shift for laser diffraction. This feature looks more deeply into each sample, analyzing both its steady and transient states and ensuring the reproducible measurement of sample size distribution while providing more insight into other factors, including contaminants.

Obtaining the highest quality data starts with developing the right analytical method. SOP Architect, fuelled by machine learning algorithms, builds the best possible method for each sample and provides a guided workflow.

Embedded data quality guidance, based on Malvern Panalytical’s extensive expert advice, flags any issues as soon as they occur, empowering users to correct their course and move on. Both features help deliver top-quality data more quickly and simply than ever before, regardless of the user’s experience level. In addition, method transfer between Mastersizer 3000 and Mastersizer 3000+ is equally straightforward.

Paul Senior, Micromaterials Product Manager, Malvern Panalytical, said: “We had a challenging task to improve upon our own market-leading laser diffraction instrument, the Mastersizer 3000! But we have made significant leaps forward, especially in the Mastersizer 3000+ software where we’re thrilled to bring our customers an even smarter way to measure particle size. I’m particularly excited to see how the Mastersizer 3000+’s use of cutting-edge, integrated AI will simplify the route to achieve best-quality particle size data, positively impacting product research, development and manufacturing across the world.”
