Copley Scientific to exhibit new aerosol spectrometer at European Aerosol Conference

13 July 2007; Nottingham, UK: Copley Scientific will exhibit the new Wide-Range Particle Spectrometer (WPS™) from MSP Corporation at the European Aerosol Conference, 9 – 14th September 2007, Salzburg (Austria). Copley Scientific is the exclusive European distributor for MSP Corporation, and a world leader in the manufacture of inhaler test equipment.

MSP Corporation has acknowledged expertise in the field of air sampling and particle analysis, and a cutting edge product range that includes, MOUDI cascade impactors, the Next Generation Pharmaceutical Impactor and the WPS. All these instruments will be on display at the conference. The Copley Scientific team will be on hand to provide advice on the products, and on the extensive range of instruments and accessories offered for inhaler testing.

The latest version of the highly successful WPS uses an electrical ioniser to neutralise particle charge prior to differential mobility analysis (DMA). This technological breakthrough eliminates the need for neutralisation by radioactive source. The WPS is the only commercially available spectrometer that combines DMA and condensation particle counting with laser light scattering in a single instrument, to deliver a measurement range of 5 nm to 10 microns.
