Principles:

Precise automated static image analysis of size and shape of well-dispersed particles using light microscopy and software to individually assess high number of particles by automated stepwise movement of stage to capture whole sample. Dispersion unit for dispersing powders onto slides.
Software package allows analysis of each individual particle.

Suitable for:
Particles sized between 500 nm and 1.5 mm.
Hard particles
Wet or dry samples (dilute wet samples sufficiently (2-3 drops in 20 mL) and use cover slip)

Benefits:
High resolution
Accurate shape and size measurements
Rapid sample preparation
Magnification 2.5 x – 50 x.
Eight slides loading capacity
Addition holder for 25/47 mm filter membranes
Reflected and transmitted light options.
