Microtrac – a new leader in particle characterisation

LabService Providers is the exclusive Irish distributor of Microtrac particle analysers. In 2020, leading companies for particle characterisation RETSCH Technology, Microtrac and MicroTrac BEL merged into one powerful brand: Microtrac MRB. All three companies share a passion for making particle analysis more accurate, more effective and more convenient to exceed customer expectations and develop superior solutions for every application. For the physical characterisation of particles, Microtrac offers a range of optimal particle analysers. Microtrac is the only worldwide supplier of dynamic image analysis, static image analysis, laser diffraction, and sieve analysis equipment with extensive expertise on each method.

Laser Diffraction

Microtrac has been a global leader in laser diffraction instrumentation for over 40 years and has developed a robust portfolio of instruments.

Dynamic Image Analysis

Microtrac offers state of the art particle size and shape characterisation.

Dynamic Light Scattering / Zeta Potential

Microtrac uses a proprietary probe design to deliver and collect light. By focusing the laser probe at the material interface, the instruments combine the benefits of a short path length with reference beating and 180° backscatter for optimal accuracy, resolution and sensitivity.

Static Image Analysis

Solutions for precise characterisation of powders and suspensions down to the low micro range by static image analysis – for applications in R&D and also for routine analysis.

Dust Characterisation

Characterise the dustiness of powders and granulates with real-time measurement of up to 1000 measurements per second.

Xoptix – In-process Particle Sizing

Xoptix was founded in 2005 by a team of scientists and engineers passionate about laser diffraction and particle sizing. With a range of in-line particle sizers to help control processes in both wet and dry applications, the XO range of particle sizers have shown real business benefit at each installation, as the inline monitoring of a process helps to regulate efficiency. As efficiency increases, so the process is optimised saving resources and maximising delivery.


Xoptix bring in-process particle size monitoring technology to industries in an easy to integrate, small footprint, easy to use package. As a perfect fusion of proven design and latest technology, Xoptix deliver the most compact, rugged, best performing in-process particle analysers at a fraction of the cost of competitor systems.
