Surface Measurement Systems Ltd, John Dowd

We are excited to announce the upcoming launch of a new, state-of-the-art contract testing laboratory, Particle Characterisation Laboratories (PCL). Based in Hyderabad, India, this is the latest business venture from Surface Measurement Systems Holdings (SMS).

With over 30 years of extensive knowledge in materials characterization, Surface Measurement Systems is launching this new enterprise to bring advanced particle characterisation capabilities and expertise to the global research community. The new 6,000 sqr ft facility will house an extensive range of particle analysis instrumentation, enabling Particle Characterisation Laboratories to explore a range of properties and address key queries and issues that commonly arise in particle research.


With a range of particle engineering techniques available all under one roof, this one-of-a-kind CRO will work closely with clients to provide full method development and validation of all result produced, tailoring the analysis to the scope, schedule and goals of the customer. PCL will work closelt with client staff and provide detailed coaching and support to give a rounded understanding of analytical findings.

Employing a variety of analytical techniques, Particle Characterisation Laboratories will be able to provide insight into a range of properties and characteristics, including:

  • Powder Flowability
  • Powder Stickiness
  • Hygroscopicity
  • Material Stability
  • Polymorphism
  • Amorphous Content
  • Electrostatic Charge
  • Material Cohesiveness
  • Agglomeration
  • True Density
  • Particle Size
  • Particle Shape
  • Surface Energy
  • Heterogeneity
  • Diffusion Coefficient
  • Surface Area
  • Porosity
  • Zeta Potential
  • Molecular Weight
  • Morphology

Particle Characterisation Laboratories will be launching soon. To receive more updates as they become available, please subscribe for updates.
