The new LS 13 320 XR Extended Range 10 nm – 3,500 µm
The new Beckman Coulter LS 13 320 XR has arrived. It features a significantly improved particle analysis range that stretches from 10 nm – 3,500 µm a smaller hardware footprint, and the new “ADAPT” (Automatic Distribution Analysing Particle Technology) software. The new User Interface experience is both simple and intuitive in its navigation and is supported by the latest Windows 10 OS. Integrated into the ADAPT software is a QA/QC statistics analysis tool to quickly and visually distinguish a pass/fail result, yet has the sophistication necessary to support and facilitate a research and development requirement. Let’s take a look under the hood. The improved electronics and optical detection system extends the analysis range providing actual measurement capability from 10 nm – 3,500 µm while improving individual peak discrimination. Now you can have it all: accuracy, versatility, and the dependability you’ve come to expect with Beckman Coulter Instruments, in addition to the exciting new ADAPT software and measurement capability from 10 nm – 3,500 µm.
At Beckman Coulter Life Sciences we have learned an incredibly valuable lesson in instrument design. We need to listen to the customer first and foremost. Designing a new instrument with all the latest bells and whistles is useless if it doesn’t serve the customer’s needs. Further, one of our primary goals is for the instrument to both be easy to operate and provide a useful measurement result. We want the sophistication hidden under the hood and behind the scenes where it belongs and not providing any impediments to an excellent user’s experience. The new LS 13 320 XR comes equipped new software (ADAPT), a completely new and intuitive User Interface, and an updated look and feel of the measurement bench and the sample modules. The expanded particle size measurement ranges of the ULM and DPS (Tornado) extend the overall measurement range of the system from 10 nm all the way up to 3,500 µm. The important differentiator is that the new LS 13 320 XR provides actual physical measurement capability as opposed to extrapolated data that is the norm. The following are examples featuring the extreme measurement capability of both the ULM and DPS (Tornado) modules.
