Pompano Beach, FL
(954) 946-9454, (800) 762-2478
New product:LICO 500 Spectrophotometer
Attributes/comments:High performance, microprocessor controlled spectrophotometer with a wavelength from 380-720nm for color measurement or 320 nm to 1100 nm for routine analysis. The LICO 500 can cary out exact colometric evaluation in conformity with several ISO/ASTM standards with a single measure. Besides the more than 20 color indexes, transmittance and absorbance can be measured at individual wavelengths, so the LICO 500 can be used universally for analytical purposes.
Netzsch Fine Particle Technology, LLC
New product:MicroSeries Agitator Bead Mills
Attributes/comments:The MicroSeries wet grinding mills result in particles down to 20 nanometers in size. Ideal for small-batch (0.14 to 0.5 liter) laboratory and sample grinding. The MircroSeries line comprises three mills, each with grinding chamber parts fabricated in different materials for specific applications. �
Attributes/comments:MicroPsi small-batch dispersion system is used for development of repeatable, homogenous mixtures with emission- and dust-free inline operation which helps wet particulate solids with liquid components under vacuum and micro cavitation conditions.
