VROC initium Application Note - Automated Screening of BSA Solutions

VROC® initium
Automated Screening of BSA Solutions

Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) is a globular protein extracted from cow’s blood. Due to its low-cost, stability and availability, BSA is widely used as a protein concentration standard.

Viscosity of conductive inks with m-VROC® and microVISC™:


Viscosity of conductive inks, paints and coatings is key to establish manufacturing processes for printed electronics and display systems. The complexity of printing and coating technologies has motivated a rapid growth of the conductive inks industry. To meet the market demands, efficient, highly accurate and fast characterization methods are required.
 
Conventional viscometers are often unable to fully characterize complex fluids (i.e. they are not able to measure viscosity as a function of shear rate or extensional properties). On the other hand, rheometers are limited to relatively low (<10,000 1/s) deformation rates. Our microfluidic-based VROC® (Viscometer/Rheometer On a Chip) technology overcomes these limitations.
 
RheoSense viscometers are able to fully characterize the flow curves (viscosity vs shear rate) of complex fluids for shear rates ranging from 0.5 to 1,400,000 1/s. Additionally, we offer measurements of extensional viscosity and temperature control from 4°C to 105°C. Accurate measurements of shear and extensional viscosity at the deformation rates and temperatures relevant for the fabrication processes are essential to understand the subtleties of the different printing and coating technologies.

VROC® powered instruments, provide a solution to the challenges of conventional technologies. The high accuracy and repeatability over a wide range of deformation rates make our systems Simply Precise™ at a fraction of the sample volume and testing time!

Viscosity on Demand

Offshore oil producers have long wished to have a magical remote control for the viscosity of crude oil. An ideal device like this will allow them to reduce the viscosity of crude oil for a few hours, while it is pumped through pipelines to onshore tanks, where it would be restored to its original thick and viscous conditions. Scientist R. Tao and X. Xu have finally cracked it!

Using Extensional Viscosity to Improve Enhanced Oil Recovery Research

Enhanced Oil Recovery Techniques have been used to successfully extract crude oil from oil fields. According to the Energy Department's Office of Fossil Energy, EOR techniques have allowed "30 to 60 percent, or more, of the reservoir's original oil in place."
