LAPONITE - Use to Enhance Cell Growth & Drug Delivery

Posted by Grace

Sep 13, 2017 9:19:53 PM

Laponite is an additive which is by definition, "a unique specialty additive; a layered silicate manufactured from naturally occurring inorganic mineral sources." The main purpose in which Laponite serves can be separated into two major uses:

1) Rheology Modifier — Laponite is added to various consumer products to improve stability; many products have been shear sensitive or thixotropic behavior. Laponite is often used as a thickener in cosmetics.

2) Film Former  Laponite produces film to create electrically conductive coatings

Aside from these two major uses, Laponite has been used in the healthcare industry as a bioink additive to hydrogels, enabling a habitable environment for stem cells and also playing a role in creating a biodegradable containment for drug delivery.

A recent study has been released by brilliant researchers at Penn State. Upon careful research, it has been discovered that bacteria plays a role in viscosity. Solutions where bacteria is highly concentrated, it was observed that there was a decrease in viscosity. Initially thought to be a result of high concentrations, researchers dug deeper.

In June, Mr. Lee of our partner in South Korea (Sercrim Labtech), visited us to do a refresher on the servicing side of RheoSense viscometers.

RheoSense's ability to have such a wide, global presence is due to the support and partnership of our international distributors. All of RheoSense's international partners go through a contractual process and technical training to be able to fully supply and support RheoSense viscometers.

If you are interested in distributing RheoSense viscometers or work with one of our international partners, contact us and we will connect you!

Intrinsic Viscosity Measurements of Protein Solutions

Posted by Grace

Mar 7, 2017 12:25:42 PM

The requirement to measure intrinsic viscosity and the demand for such measurements have been increasing. This is a result of increasing industry demand to produce optimized formulations and reduce the production timeline as much as possible. In addition, many protein formulation scientists seeing the benefits in understanding the molecular structure and interactions of their candidate proteins in formulations.

Frog Saliva Viscosity

Posted by Grace

Feb 6, 2017 5:10:01 PM

 

According to a recent discovery, a frog is able to change the viscosity of its saliva in order to catch its prey. When extending its tongue out at the prey, the viscosity of the frog's saliva decreases. Once the prey is on the frog's tongue being drawn closer to the frog, the frog's saliva thickens up far more viscous than honey.Read our application notes on kinetic studies!
