Aspect

The Aspect instrument uses the pattern of scattered light to measure the shape of airborne particles in real-time, in addition to their size and the number concentration. Using proprietary ASAS (Aerosol Size and Shape) Technology in a compact design, the Aspect is a tool for a broad range of applications in research, development, and process control. The Aspect can be operated in tandem with Biral’s AFS – Aerosol Fluorescence Sensor to provide multi-parameter characterization.
