ATA Scientific specialises in servicing and marketing analytical and scientific instruments. The products supplied by ATA Scientific focus on Biotechnology, Particle science and Spectroscopy. ATA Scientific instruments are also related to micro emulsion, nano particle and bio surface research.
Pharmaceutical products supplied by ATA Scientific include nano particle sizing, sprays-inhaler testing, cell and particle counting and sizing and so on.
Cell and particle counting and sizing is done by Sysmex CDA-500 instrument. The CDA 500 system is an easy to use cell counter which uses electro zone sensing method. This process requires only three minutes.
There are four modes of measurement used including Time which performs the analysis for a pre set time. Recount repeats measurements automatically and Manometer measures the number of cells and particles present per unit volume. Peak count is another mode which counts the number of cells of a preset size.
Three detectors are present, which cover the size of particles ranging from 1.25 to 60 microns. Each detector comes with a sub size to count the particles with in specified size or range. The CDA-500 software offers range of data outputs including volume, diameter, size and particle density. The results are analysed with the help of data processing functions. Distribution curves up to 10 samples can be displayed graphically.
