Bluewave Particle Size Analyzer

Bluewave Particle Size Analyzer

Microtrac | Particle Size Analysis

Microtrac MRB’s Bluewave provides accurate, reliable, and repeatable particle size analysis for a diverse range of applications by utilizing the proven theory of Mie compensation for spherical particles and the proprietary principle of Modified Mie calculations for non-spherical particles.

The Bluewave is optimized for materials below 1 micron delivering unsurpassed resolution. The Bluewave measures particle size from 0.01 to 2800 microns.

Microtrac MRB has a tradition of delivering innovative solutions in particle size analysis through light scattering technology. The Bluewave laser diffraction analyzer is a continuation of that tradition. Utilizing the patented tri-laser technology, the Bluewave provides accurate, reliable and repeatable particle size information for applications ranging from research and development to production, process, and quality control. The Bluewave complies with or exceeds ISO 13320-1 particle size analysis – light diffraction methods.


  • Tri–laser, blue / red, multi-detector, multi-angle optical system
  • True blue lasers (not LEDs)
  • Algorithms that utilize Mie compensation and Modified Mie calculations for spherical and non-spherical materials
  • Measurement capability from 0.01 to 2800 microns
  • Wet and dry measurements
  • Enclosed optical path ensures complete protection of the optical components leading to little or no operator intervention


  • Utilizing blue lasers, the resolution of the low-end measurements increases to dramatically improve the accuracy of measurements below one micron
  • Proprietary Modified Mie calculations allow users to accurately measure non-spherical particles that other particle analyzers struggle to accurately characterize
  • Seamless transition from wet to dry measurement reduces down-time
  • Fixed detectors provide rugged durability and assure proper positioning
  • Small bench footprint reduces demand on valuable laboratory space
