Why is it important to do viscosity testing at greater than 1,000 1/s?

If you are not performing high shear viscosity testing on your proteins, then you are not fully characterizing your samples.

Scientist Thinking

You may be missing valuable information that can shape, direct and influence your formulation.

Relative Viscosity vs. Shear Rate of 250 mg/ml BgG at (25°C)

•Complete shear rate profile

•Most shear thinning occurs at shear rates above 1,000 1/s

•Accurately estimate shear at the needle

•With knowledge of shear thinning

•Therapeutic concentration can be increased

•Needle gauge can be higher for increased patient comfort leading to greater patient compliance

•More accurate injection force calculations
