    What once took hours, can now be done in minutes! Introducing Spectra PSDX. The most advanced Particle Size Distribution System.

    Now you can inspect, retrieve, compile and store particle size distribution data faster than ever before. Engineered for high-speed, high-volume testing, PSDX will count thousands of fields in just minutes! In addition, it will dramatically improve your Quality Assurance Lab with streamlined efficiency, productivity and much more accurate statistics.

    The Spectra PSDX system is one of the most advanced particle size analysis tools on the market. Our powerful, easy-to-use PSDX software is designed to perform measurement functions automatically. All you do is input your inspection parameter, scan your sample and PSDX provides accurate results in a matter of seconds! Round or square sample areas, bright or dark particles, it makes no difference. PSDX can automatically find the field boundaries of samples used and the type of particles present. What's more, it will accurately measure particles as small as 1 Ám!

    This turn-key system will allow users to quickly and accurately determine size distribution of particles, from as small as 1 Ám, in an easy to setup and use format. Automated functions allow effortless area-of-interest selection for 100% inspection of filter or slide.

    Spectra PSDX is an easy-to-use Graphical front end that runs on top of the industry standard, ImagePro Plus. Thresholding is used to select the desired field of particles/blobs to count. The particles/blobs within the selected field can be further sorted by inclusion or exclusion based on size, shape or color and can be categorized as organic or metallic. Unlimited bins allows size distributions.
