Thanks! Was wondering if there’s a method to calculate the mean distance between the particles?

Possibly you could use this plugin, suggested in the mentioned thread:
https://icme.hpc.msstate.edu/mediawiki/index.php/Nearest_Neighbor_Distances_Calculation_with_ImageJ
The output is nearest neighbour distances (which is calculated by the Nnd plugin from the x,y-coordinates from your particles) - from this you could take the mean yourself using e.g. excel.
Is this what you need?
