Partica LA-960V2

HORIBA introduces the newest breakthrough in particle size technology with the LA-960V2. The LA-960V2 features intuitive software, unique accessories and a high performance optical system to deliver actionable results in less than one minute. Even the most challenging applications are easily measured with the innovative Method Expert software guiding the method development process.

The optional LY-9610 imaging unit allows real-time observation, particle image acquisition, and assessment of the particles in the wet circulation system. It integrates into the main unit without increasing instrument footprint.


From ultra-fine nanoparticles to visible particles, they can all be measured with this single instrument. Designed with high quality components, the LA-960V2 ensures a long lifetime of hassle-free operation.
