Malvern Archimedes

Archimedes is an innovative, high-performance system which harnesses the technique of resonant mass measurement in order to detect and count particles in the size range 50nm – 5µm and to measure particle mass and size. Archimedes is uniquely positioned to quantitatively measure protein aggregates within and beyond the range of 200nm – 5µm, highlighted as a particular concern for immunogenicity and product safety.
