Anton Paar`s New PTD 100 Cone-Plate: Expand Testing Capabilities for Your ViscoQC Rotational Viscometer with Minimal Investment

Jan 31 2023

PTD 100 Cone-Plate is an accessory for ViscoQC 100 and ViscoQC 300 that transforms your standard rotational viscometer into a cone-plate viscometer. You can determine the absolute viscosity of a wide sample range, from fluids like vaccines to semi-solids like waxes – with a sample volume of just 0.5 mL to 2 mL. The built-in Peltier temperature device offers a wide, precise temperature range from 0 °C to 100 °C and is fully controlled via the ViscoQC display.

Fast, reliable, accurate

Upgrade your ViscoQC with the PTD 100 Cone-Plate anytime in less than a minute when a cone-plate setup is required, and easily remove the accessory when a measurement with typical L/RH spindles is required. This saves you costs as no further cone-plate dedicated viscometer is required.

The built-in Peltier temperature control and the embedded temperature sensor eliminate the need for artificial temperature inflation to compensate for temperature loss due to recirculation from thermostat to sample. Further benefits: Due to the small footprint, no additional space on the lab bench is required, and the maintenance expenditures are kept to a minimum as there is no need to change thermostat fluids, hoses, and other parts like with liquid baths.

Anton Paar’s PTD 100 Cone-Plate eliminates operator error and ensures full traceability. A particular highlight is the automatic gap setting and continuous monitoring of the correctly set gap, preventing invalid measurements. The five available spindles (CP40, CP41, CP42, CP51, CP52) feature magnetic coupling for fast, easy spindle exchange and automatic spindle recognition with ToolmasterTM as standard, eliminating errors associated with choosing the wrong spindle physically as well as in the spindle list of the viscometer.

Full audit readiness with 70 % less personnel work

Looking for advanced data integrity and 21 CFR Part 11 compliance? With the V-Comply software upgrade for ViscoQC 300, which also includes the Pharma Qualification Package, you cover all requirements like audit trails, electronic signature, data security, login controls, user authentication, and many more, which can also be proven during qualification.

The configuration-specific qualification package, along with qualified installation support, delivers a fully qualified analytical environment and reduces in-house personnel work to prepare your ViscoQC setup for routine operation by 60 % to 70 %. The qualification goes significantly beyond simple installation and basic IQ/OQ to include individual preparation for every system. A detailed risk analysis, a performance qualification, a traceability matrix, and a final qualification report increase the full-process value of the qualification package.
