SALD-7500 Particle Size Analyzer
Tailored towards real-time, submicron particle characterization
WingSALD II is the user-friendly software that is included for all current SALD instruments. Because laser diffraction particle size measurements require input of the refractive index of the sample, the correct values to input may not always be known for new samples. During sample setup, an entry from a database of over 200 materials can be used to obtain a range of refractive indices that best describe the sample. After performing a measurement, the innovative Kinoshita method then automatically provides a series of particle size distributions based on the “best fit” of the light intensity data with the refractive index range. This feature greatly reduces the potential guesswork needed to determine the exact refractive index value of the sample.
When the SALD-7500nano must be used in a demanding quality control operation, the Assist function can be used to ensure complete procedural reproducibility. SOPs can be programmed to ensure that the same process is followed every time. Additionally, administrator rights can be assigned to ensure that only authorized personnel can make modifications or perform non-SOP operations.
For large amounts of data, particularly when samples are measured at 1-second intervals, various visualization schemes in WingSALD II can be used to quickly identify key differences and features. Some of these features include 2D- and 3D-overlay graphs. Additionally, these data can be saved as groups, which allows for easy processing and comparison to other samples.
