A viscometer great for the analysis of drug and biological samples

Mar 08 2024

The viscosity of chemical and biological samples is important to know in several research, clinical, and QA scenarios. Professionals working in life sciences, medicine, and pharmaceuticals will be elated to know there is a viscometer  capable of measuring low-viscosity samples, handling very small volumes, exerting minimal shear stress, maintaining sterility and gas atmosphere, and much more!

KEM’s EMS-1000S measures viscosity by quantifying the rotational dynamics of a sample-immersed spherical probe spun using Lorentz forces. The instrument has a wide measurement range of 0.1 to 1,000,000 mPa·s (cP), measuring with high accuracy and repeatability even at super-low viscosities. It provides convenient measurement modes for determining the concentration, temperature and shear rate dependence of viscosity. The instrument’s heating/cooling system quickly and stably controls sample temperature to between 0 and 200°C.

The EMS-1000S-compatible sample tubes (and probes) can be autoclaved to prevent biological contamination, handy for sample reuse. Tubes can be hermetically sealed to maintain a certain gaseous atmosphere such as nitrogen-saturated, anaerobic, etc. Samples down to 90μL in volume can be measured, great for scarce and expensive samples. Contact-free measurement means no clean-up, making it safer and improving operational efficiency. The EMS-1000S is extremely user-friendly, just insert the tube, close the lid, and press start.
