File ParticleSizer_.jar [1]

Latest version v1.0.0(27. Jun 2016)
Development status active


The ParticleSizer script was developed to automatically measures the distributions of the characteristic size and shape properties of a nanomaterial. In the scope of implementing the European Commission definition of a nanomaterial, the minimal external dimension of the primary particles of a particulate material is assessed as the minimal feret diameter from electron microscopy images. Other size and shape parameters are measured simultaneously.


The ParticleSizer script combines a number of different plugins. The most easy way is to follow Biomedgroup & ParticleSizer update site.

It is recommended to install R to get better plots. When this point is skipped, a stripped-down plot will be shown:

  1. Download the latest R: https://cran.uni-muenster.de/
    1. Download the Rserver package: https://rforge.net/bin/windows/contrib/3.0/Rserve_1.8-0.zip
    2. Download the MASS package: https://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/contrib/3.2/MASS_7.3-45.zip
    3. Start R and select the packages downloaded in 5.2 and 5.3 via "Start Packages -> Install packages from local zip files"
