Founded in 1962, Micromeritics is a leading supplier of materials characterization analytical laboratory instrumentation and services. The company manufactures a broad line of automated laboratory instruments that measure physical characteristics of powders and solids for fundamental research, product development, quality assurance and control, production, and process control applications. Measurements obtained include particle size, surface area, pore volume, pore size and pore size distribution, material density, catalytic activity, and temperature-programmed reactions.

Micromeritics’ Particulate Systems division features a line of materials characterization instruments that measure nano particle size, zeta potential, particle shape, high-pressure adsorption isotherms, dynamic vapor sorption, activity and selectivity of catalysts, surface energy, segregation testing, and determination of low levels of iron content in a variety of materials. The company also operates Micromeritics Analytical Services and Micromeritics Pharmaceutical Services, both providing contract sample analyses and consulting services.
