Microtrac consists of a dedicated team of experts, ready to deliver custom solutions to the particle science industry. We reach customers worldwide not only with our locations in the US and Germany, but with our large network of distributors as well.

Outlined below is a synopsis of what makes Microtrac’s particle characterisation technology and service offerings unique.

1. Pioneers in particle analysis since 1969

There is a reason that very few people remember Bert Hinkler – he was the second to fly across the Atlantic Ocean. Charles Lindberg was the first, and he is a household name.

Similar to Lindberg, Microtrac (back then with Leeds & Northrup) was the first to use Laser Diffraction to measure particle size. Since inventing its first instrument, Microtrac has spent the last five decades improving on its technology.

2. Microtrac's design values

The team at Microtrac is dedicated to delivering innovative technology. Guided by an ISO system that monitors design, manufacturing, customer satisfaction, and continuous improvement, Microtrac strives to deliver instruments that will improve any industry in which they are utilised.

3. Dedication to particle characterisation

Our employees are scientists, just like our clients. Contributing to Microtrac’s instrument offerings has been the life’s work of Microtrac employees.

4. Application response

Not every application is created equally. Ranging from simple to complex, Microtrac has the ability to provide expert guidance for a wide range of applications. By developing inclusive training programs, SOPs, and case by-case consulting, Microtrac continues to exceed customer expectations.

5. Service

Offering short response time, telephone support and on-site maintenance, Microtrac is committed to delivering 100% customer satisfaction.

Our product portfolio covers a wide range of particle characterisation:

Our laser diffraction analysers, the Nanotrac Flex and the Nanotrac Wave, nanoparticles from less than 1 nanometre up to a few microns are measured accurately for particle size and Zeta potential.

The Microtrac Sync is our most recent product: This system combines dynamic image analysis with laser diffraction, makes switching from wet to dry measurement easy and operates in a measurement range from 0.01 to 4,000 µm.

Out of our portfolio for dynamic image analysis, the PartAn 3D is the only analyser that delivers three dimensional particle size and shape analysis of granulates through proprietary technology.

Through a combination with our laser diffraction systems, the image analyser PartAn SI has the capability for particle shape analysis in suspensions and emulsions.

Dedicated versions of our image analysers, the PartAn 3D PRO and PartAn SI PRO (as well as Maxi variants for large particles) are available for on-line process control.

Microtrac's laser diffraction analysis systems, Blue Wave and Tri-Blue, identify / determine particle size distributions in powders, suspensions and emulsions from milimetres down to a few nanometres.

Microtrac hat auf der Pittcon 2018 ein neues System angekündigt: Der Microtrac Sync wird Kunden mit weitaus mehr Informationen zu ihren Partikeln versorgen als bisher. Durch Integration der marktführenden Laserbeuger-Technologie mit der weltweit etablierten dynamischen Bildanalyse in einem System synchronisiert der Sync die Messung von Größe und Form – eine Probe, eine System, ein Probenzufluss, eine Probenzelle, eine Benutzeroberfläche, eine Analyse.Ob es sich um eine Fehlerbeseitigung bei einer Partikelgrößenverteilung handelt oder nach weiteren Wegen gesucht wird, Probenmaterial zu charakterisieren: Dieses neue Microtrac-Instrument steigert die Produktivität und erlaubt Nutzern, die Eigenschaften des Probenmaterials genauer zu untersuchen und zu optimieren. “Bislang hat die...
