One of the common questions we get from our customers is, “Which chip do I use to test my fluid?” RheoSense has a variety of different chips and you may wonder which chip would be the best for your application. The m-VROC® has four different designations of chips: A, B, C, and E. These letter values reference the max pressure capability of the MEMS pressure sensors inside the microfluidic flow cell. With the A-series being able to measure the lowest pressures for low viscosity fluids, the E-series are able to measure the highest pressures for higher viscosities and higher shear rates.
We hope that everyone's last week of march is nothing short of positivity and growth. It has been an extremely busy month (& that's not a complaint) for most of us! And of course increasing productivity often yields the best results, right?
We are all familiar with maintaining our lab instruments, but how often do we perform maintenance on our lab methods or SOPs?
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!
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!
