Micromeritics Analytical Services Offers Method Development and Consulting Services - 8/05/2005
Micromeritics Instrument Corporation has been a leader in the advancement of particle characterization techniques for over 40 years. Over that time, Micromeritics scientists and engineers have established unsurpassed credibility in support of material science. This experience and expertise is now available to customers through method development and consulting services, organized by Micromeritics Analytical Services. Method development services offer clients a resource for optimizing particle characterization analyses of specific materials. The method development process includes sample preparation, a process that sometimes can be more important than the analytical phase. Clients receive a summary of the development process, typical results using the recommended method, and a step-by-step procedure detailing the optimized analysis conditions. Consulting services also are offered to those who need to better understand particle characterization techniques or gain an in-depth understanding of how to interpret both the raw data and various reports of reduced data. Specific details are tailored to the needs of the client, but typically include an explanation of how the measurements are made, why different analytical techniques can produce different results, which types of calculations are most appropriate to quantify a given characteristic, and what specific data sets indicate about the physical characteristics of the material.
