SAN RAMON, CA, July 12, 2013 -- RheoSense, Inc. announces another measurement capability to its unrivalled flagship viscometer, m-VROC.
m-VROC is now equipped with the highest resolution to detect and measure Intrinsic Viscosity, a capability indispensable for all bio/pharma and polymer applications.
Intrinsic Viscosity is a parameter used to determine the molecular size, weight, structure, and interactions among proteins, polymers, or macromolecules. Applications pertinent to polymerization, degradation, interaction, and the stability of molecules all benefit from measuring Intrinsic Viscosity. Measurement of this parameter is considered to be a more reliable method for understanding these complex phenomena than conventional light scattering.
RheoSense m-VROC, the high-precision, industry-leading viscometer, excels at measuring intrinsic viscosity. Coupled with advantages leading to smallest sample volume and shortest measurement time, RheoSense has become the undisputed industry leader in viscometry.
Until now, Ubbelohde or Cannon-Fenske glass capillary viscometer is one of the few instruments that can measure intrinsic viscosity, with high repeatability. This method, however, requires large amount of sample volume, usually more than 20 ml, as well as long thermal equilibrium time. All these issues are now eliminated with m-VROC.
With RheoSense m-VROC, intrinsic viscosity measurement is easy and fast, requiring just 20 microliters and takes only a few minutes.
