Eyecon₂ is now a step ahead in smart analysis

Eyecon₂ is now a step ahead in smart analysis


Innopharma Technology started the year 2020 with some impressive development and achievements. This January, we shipped the first Eyecon2 unit with an Autostage for improved benchtop analysis.  The Eyecon2 particle size analyser now ensures fully automated benchtop analysis with the development of a robotic stage, which eliminated manual adjustment of the sample disk. Released in December, this robotic stage can be used in benchtop processes without an operator. Additionally, Innopharma Technology has also released a new Verification Standard Kit based on certified laser pinhole technology for Eyecon2

The development of Autostage stemmed from listening to our customer's feedback. This new ancillary device, included in all At-line Eyecon2 units, can negate the need for the user to manually move material presented to the Eyeconfor measurement. 

The Autostage communicates with the particle size software EyePASSTM, to fully automate analysis workflow.  The Autostage has demonstrated improved efficiency and reproducibility for our Eyecon2 At-line users. 

Eyeconis the second generation particle size analyser developed by Innopharma Technology. Starting its journey as early as 2009, Eyecon has been praised and used by leading industry experts and manufacturing giants. Innopharma is visionary and progressing towards the next generation of particle size analysis technology.
