The Power of Portability: microVISC Viscometer

All RheoSense rectangular slit method viscometers (USP chapter 914) are powered by our patented VROC® (Viscometer-Rheometer-on-a-Chip) technology, combining microfluidics and MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) technologies. This technology produces a line of viscometers capable of measuring viscosity with the highest accuracy and repeatability. RheoSense offers a dynamic line of small sample viscometers, providing a wide range of measurement specifications and applications. This blog focuses on the specifications and applications of our portable, battery-operated viscometer - microVISC™.

microVISC is the ultimate solution for quick, easy, and rapid research and quality control measurements. This battery-operated, portable, small sample viscometer weighs less than 2 pounds and is small enough to fit in a glove box, making this the perfect solution for on-site and on-the-go measurements! It is intuitively designed so that users can start operating within one minute. The viscometer offers accurate and repeatable viscosity measurements using sample size as little as 100 microliters.

Running samples on the microVISC is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

1. Load your sample into your pipette 

2. Insert your pipette into the microVISC

3. Press Run! 

To ensure your measurements are accurate we have outlined 6 simple steps for microVISC sample testing preparation! You can also watch our short video highlighting the sample preparation best practices:


While portability is what the microVISC is most known for, the software behind it makes this small sample viscometer not only easy to use, but it takes the strain out of your data analysis. With microVISC software you can easily manage temperature control, export data into PDF or Excel spreadsheet and apply non-Newtonian correction with the push of a button!

Want to see just how easy it is to transport the microVISC and run on-site measurements? Join us for our webinar Wednesday, December 15th, as we take our webinar to a fun (and festive!) off-site location to show just how easy it is to get accurate viscosity measurements ANYWHERE with the microVISC!
