Are you pondering which laser diffraction particle size analyzer to use for your scientific research?

Many people consider the number of Google Scholar publication references as an indicator of acceptance of a particular scientific instrument’s technique, performance, and value. The higher the number of publications, the more credibility people tend to offer towards the choice of that instrument for their important research needs.

After doing a search on Google Scholar for references to the Mastersizer 3000 as well as the Mastersizer 2000, and then comparing versus several other models of laser diffraction particle size analyzers, here are the results:

When you consider that some vendor instrument models have been available for only a few years, while others have been available for decades, the initial results can be a bit distorted. Therefore, let’s get analytical and divide the result numbers shown above by the number of years the referenced vendor models have been available to the scientific community:

Regardless of how you analyze the data, the conclusion is clear! Malvern Panalytical’s Mastersizer is the preferred laser diffraction particle size analyzer research tool.
