Product Details

Particle Size Analyser (PSA)


Particle size can influence the processability of powders, both API and excipient, and affect the final formulation. In order to maintain uniformity and obtain maximum efficacy from product, particle size distributions need to be studied, with quality control at key stages in production. The PSA is a powerful tool for research and development and quality control, determining size promptly, accurately and conveniently.

Technical Overview

The PSA is a compact and reliable microscopic software analysis system that includes both the digital microscope as well as the software. Digital microscopy enables high resolution imaging, while the software conducts accurate and sensitive identification of particulate solids and agglomerations in solutions, from those images. The results are computed, tabulated and observed in real time.


Analysis and characterization of particles, 0.7 microns to 2000 microns in size

Software identifies morphology and classifies particles as isolated particles, agglomerations etc.

Statistics generated:

  • Particle size
  • Classification based on particle size
  • Average particle size
  • Size distribution shown graphically
  • Coefficient of variation
  • Classification based on particle shape
  • Reports displayed in an Excel sheet with images, in PDF or print format


  • Maintenance of a more consistent product, improving end-user value and eventually, profitability
  • May be used at any stage, reducing modifications and process repetition, resulting in efficient, streamlined processes and superior products
  • Automatic analysis through software, requiring no manual effort
  • Real-time analysis
