A novel technology to investigative sample dispersion and stability is the TURBISCAN DnS from Formulaction.

Dispersibility studies can be performed, while processing (at flow) or with your native state samples using Static Multiple Light Scattering (SMLS), as recommended by ISO TS 21357. Flow studies can be done by either pumping the sample from the process or reactor (circulation function of the Turbiscan DNS: T-LOOP) or mixing directly in the measurement cell (mixing function: T-MIX). The stability measurement is done at rest, and the Turbiscan DNS offers a fast (up to 1,000 times faster), quantitative and reliable stability measurement of destabilization kinetics without dilution or mechanical forces.

For more see the Formulaction website or ask Dr Ciaran Maguire for information or a demonstration.

Nigel Kilduff, our newest recruit,  joins technical sales for Nikon Metrology.

Nigel has a track record in technical positions with companies in the USA and UK and previously worked with other well-known Irish Laboratory Suppliers, including Lennox and Brennans.

His LinkedIn profile says it all. “After 20 years in Service & calibrations, it’s time for a change in direction!” This is an exciting addition to our team and what we do. Nigel will specialise in sales and support for Nikon microscopy and report to Ciaran Maguire but, like all of us, will add other duties to help you, the customer.

We are delighted to announce we have been appointed distributor for Nikon Metrology in Ireland.

“High precision measurement and inspection during production is essential for advanced manufacturing operations. Nikon provides systems for diverse and demanding quality control applications throughout industry.”  We shall principally be responsible for the sales and support of Nikon Microscopes to Industry. Including Stereo Microscopes with zoom, Compound microscopes and digital image capture and analysis. This is an ideal addition to our material characterisation portfolio.

We have a full set of demonstration microscopies and have new specialist  Nigel Kilduff, who will train alongside Nikon personnel and with them in their regional offices in the UK

Niamh Harman joins us to coordinate service and support.

Niamh Harman from county Meath joined our office admin team in 2022 to help with service and support. Niamh works alongside Raquel and reports to Iwona in our busy Office team.

We took on extra challenges during Covid, and coordinating our service engineers and scheduling work with customers became paramount. Niamh also coordinates all technical support jobs and works with Rob Groarke and others to ensure your questions and requests are tasked and that we follow up.

Dr Richard Tweedie supports our engineers and customers with technical knowledge and our company’s specialist projects.

We are delighted to welcome Richard Tweedie in 2022 to our Support teams. Richard graduated from Leeds University and holds a PhD from Dundee in Biomedical Instrumentation Science. Having worked in Malvern Instruments as an engineer and product manager, Richard brings diverse skills and knowledge to help us directly in Ireland and Northern Ireland. Richard’s LinkedIn profile describes him as a Specialist in sensors and metrology for the characterization of multiphase and Particulate material. In-situ characterization of particle size, rheology and concentration of complex particulate process. What more can we say, a great assett.

And we also welcome Liam Lanigan to the team!

Liam is a graduate of TUD, with experience in Surface and Photochemistry and Vacuum techniques for Nano-Science. He is joining our field service team under Neil O’Grady to work alongside Mark Gibson in the service and support of our X-ray analytical installations from Malvern Panalytical.

From January, Particular Sciences have been supporting Pion-Inc in the Republic of Ireland.

This was exciting news to start 2022, and we see it as another complimentary addition to the instruments and technologies we offer our customers. Since then, our engineer Arthur O’Kelly has trained with Pion in Boston, and Ciaran Maguire, Gerry Power and Sean Quilty have been working with the Pion UK team on applications.

“For drug development scientists requiring trusted data, Pion provide novel in-vitro tools that promote quicker, more informed decision-making. Unlike conventional techniques, that were never designed for today’s science, Pion technologies and analytical scientific instruments lead to more predictable in-vivo outcomes.”

H.E.L signs distribution agreement with Particular Sciences

H.E.L Group (H.E.L), a global developer and manufacturer of innovative laboratory tools for process optimization, safety, and scale-up, today announced a distribution agreement with Particular Sciences Ltd, Dublin. Particular Sciences become the exclusive distributor of H.E.L’s products in Eire (Ireland) and Northern Ireland, from 1st June 2021.

Take a look at some of the products and technologies we will be supporting on our Products page, including CrystalSCAN (Thermal technologies),  Bioreactors and Lab reactors (Process & Pilot technologies) and BioVIS probes and sensors (Biophysics technologies).

Since the end of 2020, Particular Sciences have been working with Netzsch to promote and supply their excellent thermal products and rheology products. This is a developing situation, made trickier by Covid-19 and lack of travel.

Gerry Power is our product specialist with the support of Eileen Smith of Netzsch UK promoting Netzsch Thermal products including DSC, TGA, and STA. Gerry of course sells and supports the Kinexus rotational and the Rosand capillary rheometers which transferred from Malvern Panalytical in 2020.

Visit our Rheology technology basket and the Thermal technology baskets on the Products page for more details.

Harry Owen who introduced Kaiser Optical Raman to Ireland is now manufacturing novel probes that improve Raman scattering collection.

This Autumn HORC will release the RIO 200S Plus with f/2 data collection and Real-Time Raman Calibration combined – for immersion in reactors or fermentors or for use with solid samples!
