Lab Tests

MAIN EQUIPMENT

We work with State-of-the-art Equipment

DLS (Dynamic Light Scattering)

Dynamic Light Scattering Ultra Zetasizer multi-angle. The only one in the market with MADLS technology: allows extremely improved resolution and particle concentration calculation. This equipment allows performing Stability and Particle Size tests.

Tensiometer (with Wilhelmy plate)

Sigma 701 Tensiometer: The only equipment of its class with a 0.005 mg resolution. Allows automatic and rigorous Surface Tension/Interfacial/CMC tests.

Rheometer

Kinexus Lab+ Rheometer: Rheometer with the best inertia reduction of the market within its segment, and greater range of normal strength, to obtain very high accuracy results. This equipment allows Viscosity and Elasticity analysis.

Press

Specially designed Press to produce various dimensions specimens (up to 25 x 25 cm). This equipment allows rigorous temperature control.

Contact Angle

Contact Angle meter that uses sophisticated analysis algorithms and ensures highly reliable results. This equipment measures the static and dynamic contact angle and surface free energy. Awarded “Best of the Best” in 2020.

UV-VIS spectrophotometer

This high-performance dual-beam UV-VIS spectrophotometer allows photometric measurements, spectrum scanning, quantitative determination, three-dimensional spectrum, and kinetic measurements.

Oxitop

Well-established equipment for the biochemical oxygen deficiency determination. Oxitop is used to determine biodegradability according to the OECD/microbiology – laboratory procedure in line with DIN ISO 29 408 / ISO 9408 / OECD 301 F. Ensures safe results and allows for different volumes and temperatures.
