The Sync is a synchronous size and shape analyzer which integrates laser diffraction technology with dynamic image-analysis technology. Users can now get their tried-and-true particle-size distribution together with particle morphology in a single, easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI). The Sync interrogates particles, wet or dry, with laser light while a high-speed digital camera takes images. The data collected is processed by the FLEX software and presents the user with particle size and shape information. While the software is powerful, the GUI is intuitive and easy to use. The Sync is designed to enable users to get more detailed information about their material than ever before, and to quickly render size-only instrumentation outdated and incomplete.
