Malvern Announces Global Launch of Morphologi G3-ID Particle Characterization System

October 11, 2012

Following the completion of a successful early access program, Malvern Instruments has launched the Morphologi G3-ID particle characterization system to the global market.

A live webinar on October 2 introduced participants to the capabilities of the system that combines automated particle imaging with the chemical identification of individual particles using Raman spectroscopy. This fully automated system measures particle size, shape, and chemical identity in a single platform.

The Morphologi G3-ID is ideally suited to solving complex particle characterization problems where particle size and shape do not provide sufficient information. The recent early access program was designed to enable users to explore specific applications and to allow full optimization of the product features. Key applications are in determining component-specific particle properties of mixtures and blends, such as the particle size of drug ingredients in nasal sprays and asthma inhalers, and in the identification of unknown or suspicious particles in injectable or parenteral products, for example.

The Morphologi G3-ID is designed to meet a wide variety of needs and to enable all users, from particle characterization scientists with limited spectroscopy experience right through to experienced spectroscopists, to gain an in-depth understanding of particulate samples. Simple SOP operation takes the user from integrated sample dispersion for dry powders through to size, shape, and chemical analysis, with automatic selection, targeting and chemical classification of thousands of individual particles. Measurements can be made on dry powders, suspensions, and membrane filters.
