Utilizing a state-of-the-art CCD detector containing over three million detector
elements, Mie theory, and unique design and data reduction features, the Saturn
DigiSizer II High-Definition Digital Particle Size Analyzer provides an extremely
high level of resolution and sensitivity not available in other laser particle
Higher resolution gives better information about the sample, providing more
accurate results in even the most complex sample types. In addition, the instrument
produces fast, detailed results that are repeatable on and reproducible between
every Saturn DigiSizer, in every location, all over the world.
Both organic and inorganic particles can be analyzed and measured over a range
of 40 nanometers to 2500 micrometers. The Saturn DigiSizer II includes a complete
system for circulating the dispersing liquid/sample mixture through the cell
and reservoir, as well as to an external waste container. Features such as fully
automated sampling and low-volume sample handling systems make the Saturn DigiSizer
ideal for a wide range of production, research, and quality control applications.
One multifunction personal computer can control up to two analyzers, each with
a liquid sample handler, and two MasterTech 052 Autosamplers, each allowing
automatic analysis of up to 18 samples sequentially without further intervention.
The liquid sample handling unit (LSHU) enables automatic sample handling. Available
in two configurations, the standard unit includes a reservoir that is adjustable
between 590 to 690 mL of dispersed sample. This model is best suited for samples
containing coarse or high-density particles. The low-volume unit includes a
reservoir that is adjustable between 100 to 120 mL of dispersed sample and is
best suited for analyses where the sample quantity or dispersion liquid is limited,
or where the dispersion liquid may be hazardous or not easily disposable. Both
sample handlers also allow for connection of an ultrasonic probe to assist in
The Saturn DigiSizer II analysis program is designed to operate in the Windows®
XP Professional or Windows Vista® Business or Ultimate environment and includes
wizards and intuitive screens enabling you to perform system operations quickly
In addition, Micromeritics’
confirm™ 21 CFR Part 11 software assists with compliance to FDA regulations.
Combined with Micromeritics' IQ and OQ services, the user can be assured that
the Saturn DigiSizer system is validated for accuracy, reliability, consistent
performance, and provides safeguards to protect the integrity of analysis records.
System access is limited to authorized individuals. Secure, computer-generated,
time-stamped audit trails are integral parts of the software program.
