Particle Testing Authority (PTA), a Division of Micromeritics Instrument Corporation Continues to Expand Its Capacity - 10/29/2018

Norcross, GA – October 29, 2018 – Particle Testing Authority (PTA), a division of Micromeritics Instrument Corporation, today announced it has acquired Malvern Panalytical’s Mastersizer 3000 to continually serve its customers with the most current particle sizing instrumentation available.
Greg Thiele, General Manager of Particle Testing Authority, stated that PTA will be utilizing expertise in method development and validation to perform method transfers and validations for customers who have (or will be) upgrading from the Mastersizer 2000 to the 3000.
“While we’ve been using the Mastersizer 2000 since 2005 our investment in the 3000 demonstrates our commitment to providing the best possible solutions to our customers and our leadership in the particle testing field.  We are also equipped to utilize the Hydro MV, Hydro LV, and the Aero S accessories allowing analysis of a wide range of particle sizes in liquid or dry dispersions.”
“We have been measuring particle size for more than a half-century and will arm our scientists with only the best possible equipment available to maintain and expand our market leadership,” added Thiele.
