8 reasons to upgrade to automated imaging

Why automated image analysis is rapidly replacing manual microscopy for characterizing particle shape and how combining it with Raman spectroscopy adds chemical identification

Abstract

The accurate measurement of particle shape and size – as well as the chemical identification capabilities provided by MDRS – could make a real difference to research, development and manufacturing operations across many different sectors of industry and commerce.

Why automated image analysis is rapidly replacing manual microscopy for characterizing particle shape and how combining it with Raman spectroscopy adds chemical identification.

Automated image analysis systems that provide detailed morphological information are rapidly replacing manual microscopy as the most effective method of characterizing both particle shape and size. These sophisticated new instruments use the latest technology to provide useful and actionable insight.

Until recently, these instruments had been regarded as rather niche, due to their previously limited functionality. However, significant advances in terms of both their capabilities and performance, along with the new insights into particle morphology that these instruments provide, have opened up exciting new avenues for research and development, and helped optimize manufacturing and production techniques to make them a much more generally attractive proposition.
