m-VROC: The micro-sample viscosity measurement system


m-VROC:  The micro-sample viscosity measurement system

The m-VROCTM is offered in four sensor specifications (A, B, C, and D) to maximize the viscosity range for scientists and engineers with varying viscosity measurement needs.  The B sensor is our general use viscometer.  Our A, C, and D sensors are designed for more specialized applications.  To select the right sensor for your needs:

m-VROCTM is our flagship instrument.  Our state-of-the-art technology raises the quality of viscosity measurements to new heights with:
♦ Small sample volume (<50 μl) targeted at biotech/pharmaceutical applications
♦ Portable design for seamless integration into QC                                                                                                     ♦ Improved, optional temperature control with built-in thermal jackets for accuracy and reproducibility
♦ Enclosed chamber with superior capability to eliminate condensation

m-VROCTM characterizes rheological properties of liquids, enabling cost-effective flow management through smart process quantification. Flow management through viscosity measurement is essential in the production of various complex liquids.  Our technology quantifies “true” flow properties, whereas many existing products give a qualitative indication of “apparent” properties.

Seeing non-Newtonian behavior from Newtonian fluids!!?
The formation of a film from adsorbed proteins at the air-solvent interface
falsely gives much higher viscosity values and shear thinning behavior.
(V. Sharma, A. Jaishankar, Y.-C. Wang , and G. Mckinley, manuscript in preparation)
