Description of instrument and special capabilities: The Multisizer 3 Coulter Counter is a versatile particle size analyzer for a multitude of size range materials. It provides size and volume distributions in number, volume, surface area and mass, with an overall range of 0.4Ám-1200Ám. The Multisizer 3 uses the Coulter Principle (Electrical Sensing Zone Method) to measure particle volume, a direct measurement of a physical property of the particle. High-speed digitalization of the signal allows the use of pulse area analysis and other techniques for additional particle characterization. The resulting measurement data can be analyzed and formatted in numerous ways, or stored and re-analyzed at a later date with no need to analyze the sample again. The measurement data for each particle analyzed is stored. The instrument automatically corrects for coincidence.
