Compact and highly efficient – Horiba’s new particle analyzer LA-350

Horiba’s LA-350 Laser Diffraction Particle Size Analyzer, distributed in Germany, Austria and Switzerland by Retsch Technology, is the ideal combination of performance, price, and packaging. Based on the advanced optical design of previous LA-series analyzers, the LA-350 strikes a harmonious balance between high-functionality, easy operation, low maintenance, and cost-effectiveness. The optimized design allows for a compact optical bench, resulting in an efficient use of bench space, while preserving the accuracy, precision and resolution that Horiba’s analyzers are famous for.

The combination of optical bench and circulation pump in one system is one of Horiba’s most popular designs. Now this design has a much smaller footprint which allows you to move the analyzer from place to place. This is especially valu­able for quality control situations when the locations of sampling and analysis need to be separate to avoid contamination. Also, because it requires less space, it is possible to place the instrument where it is needed.
