    The Photocor Compact particle size analyzer is an instrument for measuring particle size and molecular weight. The working principle of Photocor Compact is based on the dynamic light scattering method. The instrument complies with the international particle size measurement standard ISO 22412:2008.


    Particle size measurement is carried out at an angle of 90 degrees. A 160 degree backscatter module is available as an option. This option allows particle size measurements in concentrated and opaque systems.


    Due to the macro language built into the software, it is possible to automate the measurement process. The design of the cell compartment and the wide range of adapters allow the use of a variety of cylindrical and square cells.
