Key Products : Mastersizer Range, Zetasizer Range, Viscotek Range

Malvern provides the materials and biophysical characterization technology and expertise that enables scientists and engineers to investigate, understand and control the properties of dispersed systems. These systems range from proteins and polymers in solution, particle and nanoparticle suspensions and emulsions, through to sprays and aerosols, industrial bulk powders and high concentration slurries. Used at all stages of research, development and manufacturing, Malvern’s instruments provide critical information that helps accelerate research and product development, enhance and maintain product quality and optimize process efficiency.


Our products reflect Malvern’s drive to exploit the latest technological innovations. They are used by both industry and academia, in sectors ranging from pharmaceuticals and biopharmaceuticals to bulk chemicals, cement, plastics and polymers, energy and the environment.



Malvern systems are used to measure particle size, particle shape, zeta potential, protein charge, molecular weight, mass, size and conformation, rheological properties and for chemical identification, advancing the understanding of dispersed systems across many different industries and applications.


Particle Size Analyzer

The Mastersizer range of particle size analyzers has evolved to meet the needs of users in industry and academia. Through innovative use of laser diffraction technology, the Mastersizer has become the world's preferred particle size analyzer in the laboratory. Particles over a wide size range, from submicron to a few millimetres, are measured accurately and non-destructively, for both wet and dry dispersions.

The new Mastersizer 3000 particle size analyzer delivers rapid, precise particle size distributions for both wet and dry dispersions. Working over the millimetre, micrometre and nanometre particle size ranges, it packs exceptional performance into the smallest of footprints, bringing operator-independent measurements that every user can rely on.

Characterize Nanoparticles Size

The Zetasizer range measures particle and molecular size from below a nanometer to several microns, zeta potential, electrophoretic mobility, and molecular weight. In addition the system can be connected to a GPC / SEC system to enable it to be used as a chromatography detector.

The system is available in a range of variants that allows you to select the best system for your application and budget, and the philosophy of the design is to ensure exceptional ease of use and give confidence in the results without compromising performance.

The Zetasizer Nano is the World’s most widely used system for nanoparticle and biomolecular characterization.

GPC/SEC System

Gel Permeation Chromatography/Size Exclusion Chromatography (GPC/SEC) is the technique of choice for rapid and reliable characterization of molecular weight and molecular structure for all types of macromolecules – proteins, natural polymers and synthetic polymers.

Whether you are looking for a complete system or an additional detector to enhance your existing system, Malvern offers the most comprehensive range of products for all your macromolecular GPC/SEC characterisation needs. At the heart of this range are the Viscotek advanced GPC/SEC systems, including the powerful TDAmax system with OmniSEC software.

Malvern Morphologi G3

The Malvern Morphologi G3 automated particle characterization system is a new analytical tool that combines high quality /products_services/analytical_equipment/malvern-instruments/images with statistically significant particle shape and particle size measurements.

A fully integrated dry powder dispersion system reduces sample preparation times and significantly improves the repeatability of measurements, and can analyze 100’s of thousands of particles with a single click of the mouse! The Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) Approach allows all instrument variables (focus, light intensity, magnification etc.) to be objectively recorded and controlled. The ability to see and record an image of every individual particle enables a visual verification of phenomena such as the presence of broken particles, agglomerates, fines, foreign particles etc.

Dynamic Light Scattering

Insitec for dry process streams is a Process Analytical Technology solution applied equally in the pharmaceutical industry as a Quality by Design tool, and a true process instrument for real time particle size analysis. Using proven laser diffraction technology, Insitec is rapidly becoming the system of choice for pilot and full-scale plant. High measurement rates allow precise monitoring of even rapidly changing and high concentration processes, with particles from 0.1 to 2500 microns. It is manufactured under ISO9001, meets validation/GAMP requirements, offers ATEX and FM approved and intrinsically safe options, and can meet CIP and SIP requirements for hygienic applications.
