Partica LA-960V2

*Largest Industry Measuring range of 10 nm to 5000 um*

*New for 2020-Camera Add on with Image Software*

Horiba's Laser Scattering Particle Size Distribution Analyzer is the newest breakthrough in PSD!

This latest evolution in the LA series advances scientific knowledge for tomorrow's world through intuitive software, unique accessories, and high performance.

The LA-960V2 continues HORIBA's proud tradition of leading the industry with innovative design.






  •  Groundbreaking optical design perfects the static light scattering particle sizing technique.

  •  Advanced Detector Design - detector number, angular range, and layout each contribute to overall system performance.

  •  - Superior Instrument-to-Instrument Precision - designed and built to provide the same experience regardless of manufacture date, operator skill, or location without the hassle of correlation.

  •  - Automatic Laser Alignment and Blanking in Seconds

  •  - Instant on and instant off at full power with Laser Diode technology

  •  - Guaranteed Accuracy and Precision - measures NIST-traceable size standards within 0.6% of specification. Fully compliant with ISO 13320 recommendations regarding the measurement of materials on the D10, D50, and D90.

State of the Art Sampling Systems

  •  - Wet Measurement - Sample-to-sample analysis in less than 60 seconds, alignment, blanking, sample measurement and rinsing.

  •  - Powerful wet circulation system is an easy, fast m. The wet system offers a full package of a dispersant fill pump, liquid level sensor(4 levels), circulation pump(15 speeds), 30 W in-line ultrasonic probe(7 steps), and drain valve, all software-controlled for one-button operation. 

  •  - Wet accessories include - Fraction Cell, 5, 10, or 15 ml with stir bar, Mini-Flow for automated analysis with 35 ml solvent volumes, Liter Flow for large volume circulation.

  •  - Dry Measurement - Automated, dry-powder dispersion - Switches from Dry to Wet or Fraction Cell and back in seconds! All three accessories mounted and aligned at the same time for ease of change. The LA-960V2 PowderJet combines several unique and patented features to provide the most reproducible dry measurements. Use the Auto Measurement function to control vacuum, air pressure, powder flow, start/stop conditions, measurement duration, and data processing. Designed to handle every application including small sample amounts, friable powders, and highly agglomerated materials.

  • Smart Scans – Trigger function - This function allows for very precious materials to be measured accurately. When the sample amount is limited or low flow ability, the Trigger functions perfectly to start and stop the measurement.

  • Self-Adjusting Powder Flow - Historically, the biggest challenge in dry powder measurement involved establishing an even powder flow. The LA-960V2 PowderJet solves that challenge with a self-adjusting feedback loop to maintain a constant laser transmittance. This is a crucial factor in creating reliable, reproducible dry powder size measurements.

LY-9610 Imaging Unit

Imaging allows real-time observation, particle image acquisition, and assessment of the particles in wet circulation. Small and integrated in the main unit without increasing instrument footprint!

  • Detect and count even with trace amounts of unusual particles (Contaminants, large particles and aggregated particles)                                             

  • Detect bubbles in wet circulation system.

  • Improved understanding of sample dispersion (effect of stirring, sonication, addition of surfactants, stabilizers, etc.)

  • Particle shape analysis* (Optional Advanced Software)

  •  Image acquisition and particle detection.

  • Automatic detection of large particles and bubbles.

  • Real time trend graph and histogram of equivalent circular diameter.

  • Histogram of shape distribution (aspect ratio, roundness, length, width) with advanced software.
