Foreign Particle Detection

February 3, 2009
Malvern has added a new capability to its Morphologi G3 automated particle characterization system, enabling the fully automated detection, enumeration, and size classification of foreign particulate matter (FPM) collected on a filter. Analysis of FPM on filters has traditionally been the preserve of manual light microscopy. Now, the Morphologi G3 brings fully automated image analysis to accelerate characterization and remove any operator subjectivity. As well as generating fast, reproducible results, the unit provides large amounts of information about each individual particle, allowing detailed investigation, troubleshooting, and process and quality control. Several different sample carriers are available for mounting prepared filters of different sizes on to the system. These allow two filters to be presented and analyzed successively with no manual intervention.
