The new generation of particle characterisation – Image analysis with the CAMSIZER X2

The new generation of particle characterisation – Image analysis with the CAMSIZER X2

Particle characterisation by Dynamic Image Analysis (DIA) has become increasingly popular in recent years. This technique delivers very accurate particle size distributions in a very short time, is virtually maintenance-free and, unlike other methods like sieve analysis or laser diffraction, provides particle shape information. The CAMSIZER X2 is the latest...
