Press Release - New enhanced particle size characterisation capabilities at RSSL

RSSL increase their capabilities with their new Malvern Mastersizer 3000

Reading Scientific Services Ltd (RSSL) is delighted to announce increased capability in particle size characterisation using their new Malvern Mastersizer 3000. 

Using this state of the art, advanced laser diffraction particle size analyser, RSSL can offer an industry leading measurement range for particles between 0.01 and 3500 µm.  Materials from friable pharmaceuticals and excipients to emulsions and suspensions using both wet and dry dispersion units can be analysed.   With these new capabilities, RSSL can combine particle size distribution data with other techniques, such as particle shape, powder flow and dynamic vapor sorption to provide a deep understanding of how products behave.  

“The information generated can be applied to a variety of applications; from performance characterisation to optimisation of manufacturing processes” advises Ross Blezard, Senior Scientist in RSSL’s Physical Science team.  

“The expertise and knowledge that we have in all aspects of particle size characterisation means we can not only support with more routine analysis, but can also help with method development, validation and troubleshooting” says Blezard.    

One increasingly important area where RSSL can provide unique support is in being able to perform direct method transfer studies from the Mastersizer 2000 to 3000. This will be critical when support for the 2000 model is phased out over the coming years.
