Are there any limits in sample size and weight for a VSM?
In general, the sample should fit in a sample holder, because the detection geometry of the detection coils is optimized for measuring a sample no larger than that of the holder. If the sample is too large or too small for the holder, the detector loses measurement information because it is unable to “see” the edges of a larger sample and because it is not close enough to a smaller sample. The weight is also important. If the sample exceeds a certain weight, the head drive will be unable to move the sample effectively as it vibrates.
