LAPONITE - Use to Enhance Cell Growth & Drug Delivery

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.

Not too little, not too much, just the right amount of force

Do you subconsciously dread the first drop of ketchup out of its bottle? Have you noticed the inconsistent flow in the substance as you try to coax the ketchup out, only to have a huge gush of flow when you realize you have coaxed it a little too well?

Viscosity of  Conductive Inks, Coatings, Paints, & Pastes

Whether you work with printed electronics, touch displays, or any of the number of applications working with conductive inks, coatings, paints and pastes, viscosity is one of the key parameters in the development of your process. Over the last few months, RheoSense has released a number of applications related to conductive inks. Our instruments allow for accurate rheological charaterization of these samples between 4°C and 105°C. Check them out!
