Malvern Morphologi 4

The Morphologi 4 is a fully automated static image analysis system which provides a complete detailed description of the morphological properties of particulate materials.  The Morphologi 4-ID combines the same automated static image analysis with Raman spectroscopy in a single, integrated platform, providing component-specific morphological descriptions of chemical species within a blend. Typical applications cover: deformulation, complex generic drugs, foreign particles detection, protein agglomeration, forensic investigation, particle size distribution, particle shape distribution, chemical identity, abrasives, metal powders, battery materials, coating materials.
