Recently, I met several scientists who did not realize Lasentec® (Lasentech) was acquired by METTLER TOLEDO. It is hard to believe that it has already been 10 years since METTLER TOLEDO acquired Lasentec® and became the world leader for inline particle characterization technology!
The in-process particle measurement tools FBRM® [Focused Beam Reflectance Measurement] and PVM® [Particle Vision and Measurement] measure inline and require no dilution or sample preparation. FBRM® and PVM® have now been used by over 5000 scientists and engineers worldwide in R&D and manufacturing environments. FBRM® measures a chord length distribution which is a fingerprint sensitive to droplet or particle size, shape and count. In March 2011, the next generation FBRM® technology was released with breakthrough performance in terms of accuracy and sensitivity of the in situ particle measurement. If you have not done so already, you may want to check out the Breakthrough Performance for Inline Particle Characterization presentation.
