We frequently get the question, "how do I know that my equipment is working, or that these tests are accurate?" The best way to determine this and be sure of your results is to run a system suitability test.
Hello! We are pleased to announce that we are releasing a major software update for the VROC® Initium, software version 1.4.1. This software update includes a new user interface (UI) and the ability to export databases.
We are all familiar with maintaining our lab instruments, but how often do we perform maintenance on our lab methods or SOPs?
Measuring viscosity dates back to as early as the 19th century. French physicist Jean Poiseuille discovered the concept of measuring viscosity by formulating the "mathematical expression for the flow rate for the laminar flow of fluids in circular tubes." Later on, this formulation was discovered by a German hydraulic engineer Gotthilf Hagen, which came to be known as the Hagen-Poiseuille equation (Britannica). Early measurements of viscosity focused primarily on the flow of blood. Measurements were conducted using the hemodynamometer that incorporated narrow tubes & glass capillaries in effort to measure the pressures in the arteries of horses and dogs (Sutera).
