Morphological imaging is fast becoming an essential technology in the laboratory toolkit for particle characterization. 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 offers an exclusive capability, combining all the benefits of automated static imaging delivered by the Morphologi 4 with chemical identification of individual particles by Raman spectroscopy in a single measurement. Unattended SOP-driven operation controls sample dispersion, morphological and chemical analysis in one easy method. It provides a clear route to robust, operator-independent results. Spectral acquisition conditions are easily customizable to each sample, enabling measurement of thermally-sensitive species and even weak Raman scatterers. This fully automated instrument provides both particle characterization scientists with limited spectroscopy experience and more experienced spectroscopists with a comprehensive understanding of their particulate samples.
