SYNC Particle Size and Shape Analyzer

SYNC Particle Size and Shape Analyzer

Microtrac MRB | Particle Size Analysis, Cannabis Testing, Cell Disruption

Introducing the Sync by Microtrac MRB, the first synchronous size and shape particle analyzer that integrates laser diffraction technology with dynamic image analysis. Users can now get their tried and true particle size distribution together with particle morphology in a single, easy to use graphical user interface.

The Sync interrogates particles, wet or dry, with laser light while a high-speed digital camera simultaneously takes images. The data collected is processed by Microtrac MRB’s FLEX software and presents the user with particle size and shape information. The Sync enables users to get more detailed information about their material than ever before.

Shape and morphology are critical factors in understanding the properties and quality of materials.

The Sync is the perfect system for a wide range of wet and dry applications including metal powders, ceramics, batteries, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, cement, industrial minerals, glass beads, proppants, paints, coatings, toner, and additives among many others.


The sample is introduced to either the FlowSync (for wet materials) or the TurboSync (for dry materials) and disperses throughout the system.

Microtrac MRB’s patented Tri-Laser optical arrangement incorporates 3 diode lasers and 2 always-on detector arrays in fixed positions. The laser sequence captures scattered light across 165 degrees.

Simultaneously a separate LED light source illuminates the sample cell, while a high-speed digital camera takes live images of the sample.

Ready to switch between wet and dry? The delivery systems disconnect and connect easily. All air and fluid couplings are automatic.
