PAMAS SVSS

Laboratory particle counter for aqueous fluids with precise flow control for contamination monitoring, size distribution analysis and component cleanliness control

The system PAMAS SVSS is a standard laboratory particle counter for pharmaceutical applications (control of parenterals, infusion solutions, ophtalmic & oral fluids) and other low-viscous liquids. The instrument may be used as “stand alone” or software controlled.

A stepper-motor-actuated precision syringe moves the sample through the laser-diode sensor at the optimum flow-rate and an accurate sample volume is achieved. Using interchangeable syringes, the PAMAS SVSS can analyse sampling volumes of different sizes, from 100 µl to 1000 ml. For small volumes, a special “Small Volume Kit” is available.

The system can be used with different light extinction sensors. The standard sensor PAMAS HCB-LD-50/50 is equipped with a flow-rate of 10 ml/min and a size range of 1 to 200 µm.
