Key features

Unpack your digital viscometer and measure right away

Unpack your digital viscometer and measure right away

The setup takes less than 2 minutes as ViscoQC comes pre-assembled when delivered, including a SOP booklet that introduces the first steps and simplifies user trainings. The built-in digital leveling automatically indicates correct leveling at start-up, before, during and after measurement which ensures highest accuracy. It prolongs the lifetime of your viscometer and reduces maintenance by protecting its bearings. For pharmaceutical customers, Anton Paar offers instrument qualification packages: ViscoQC is qualified and ready to use within one day by ensuring full compliance to 21 CFR Part 11, GMP, and GAMP 5 (ViscoQC 300 + V-Comply) or compliance to GMP, and GAMP 5 (ViscoQC 100).

The easiest way to measure dynamic viscosity

The easiest way to measure dynamic viscosity

You do not need to be an expert to measure with ViscoQC. Anton Paar’s viscometers guide you through – from start-up to the entire measurement process – via the intuitive user interface. Continue to use your standard operating procedure (SOP) methods of your existing rotational viscometer as ViscoQC will give you the same results by using the same instrument setup and measuring settings. Each spindle is equipped with magnetic coupling for easy spindle exchange to save up to 15 seconds per test. This coupling also further reduces maintenance costs by protecting the spindle and instrument against damage caused by knocks or bending. All spindles from Anton Paar are made of chemically resistant stainless steel (AISI 316L), which increases spindle lifetime by protecting them from corrosion.

Full traceability for reliable viscosity tests

Full traceability for reliable viscosity tests

Be confident in your results as for fully traceable results ViscoQC instantly detects and documents the measuring setup of the following parts:

  • Spindles by Toolmaster™ and spindle guard by TruGuard™
  • Temperature devices and sensors (PTD 80, PTD 175, Pt100)
  • Heli-Plus

To ensure correct viscosity results, all spindle data is automatically delivered to the viscometer, as soon as the spindle is attached. With ViscoQC 300 you can further restrict each method to the unique spindle identity thanks to Toolmaster™. Your uptime is maximized as no time is wasted for repeating measurements (e.g. if the wrong spindle was mistakenly chosen from the spindle list). If you need to measure new formulations, ViscoQC automatically leads you to the right spindle/speed configuration using TruMode™.

The most convenient way to generate and export data in viscosity quality control

The most convenient way to generate and export data in viscosity quality control

Every ViscoQC includes the V-Collect PC data collection software free of charge. As ViscoQC 100 does not store any data, results are directly exported to V-Collect or printed via the Dymo® LabelWriter™ after each test. ViscoQC 300 has a huge data memory for up to 999 measurements with up to 10,000 sub-measurements on 150 MB. Additionally it is possible to print and export data as PDF, CSV, or page printer (USB or network) to V-Collect and the Dymo® LabelWriter™. For automated data export, ViscoQC 300 can be integrated into your network via Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) or FTP Serve.

Your future-proof rotational viscometer

Your future-proof rotational viscometer

Whether you choose ViscoQC 100 or ViscoQC 300, these viscometers are future-proof as they grow with your evolving needs. To measure new paste-like formulations (e.g. wall putty), you can upgrade your instruments with the Heli-Plus and T-bar spindles. Gel time/pot life determination of e.g. adhesives is automatically possible with both models. If you need most accurate sample temperature control and have less than 20 mL of sample volume available, simply use the Peltier temperature device PTD 80. Further software functionality can be added to ViscoQC 300 with up to two optionally upgradeable software modules: V-Curve and/or V-Comply.

  • V-Curve adds real-time graph, analysis (e.g. yield point), programmability, and extended method functionality (e.g. with PTD 175)
  • V-Comply for compliance to 21 CFR Part 11 (e.g. audit trail, electronic signature), including qualification documentation

For automated sample name input, a bar code reader is available for ViscoQC 300.

ViscoQC FAQ

A. General

A.1 Which model should I choose for my sample?

  • ViscoQC 100/300 - L for low-viscosity samples. Typical samples: solvents, oils, juices, mouthwash
  • ViscoQC 100/300 - R for medium-viscosity samples. Typical samples: paints, dairy products, shampoo, lotion
  • ViscoQC 100/300 - H for high-viscosity samples. Typical samples: pastes, mayonnaise, peanut butter, ointments

A.3 Which spindle/measuring system should I choose?

It depends on the available sample volume and viscosity of the sample. Here are some recommendations:

A.3.1 Sample volume

If large sample volumes (~500 mL) are available, both relative measuring systems (L1-L4 spindle, RH1-RH7 spindle, vane spindles V71-V75, T-Bar spindles), or absolute measuring systems (concentric cylinder, double-gap, small sample adapter, ultra-low viscosity adapter) can be used. If sample volume is limited ( <20 mL), an absolute measuring system (cylinder, double-gap, small sample adapter, ultra-low viscosity adapter), or a small vane spindle (V74, V75) is required.

A.3.2 Surface area

General rule of thumb for measuring systems: The lower the viscosity, the larger the surface area.

  • Surface area decreases from L1 to L4
  • Surface area decreases from RH1 to RH7
  • Surface area decreases from CC26 to CC12
  • Surface area decreases from V71 to V74
  • The largest surface area is provided by the double-gap and the ultra-low viscosity adapter system. Hence, samples with a viscosity around 1 mPa.s (like water) can be measured with DG26 or UL26 and ViscoQC 100/300-L.

A.3.3 Viscosity ranges per measuring system/spindle and torque model

The following tables give you an overview of the theoretical (calculated) viscosity range per measuring system.

A.3.5 T-Bar Spindles

The below ranges are applicable for ViscoQC 100/300 and are shown in [mPa.s] or [cP], respectively. T-bar spindles are used to measure paste-like materials (e.g. wall putty, lotions, creams, mayonnaise) together with the Heli-Plus (a motorized stand that moves the viscometer head down- and upwards). A low rotational speed between 0.1 rpm to 2 rpm should be chosen for measurement. Results are valid for half a rotation of the T-bar spindle in the sample material (0.2 rpm = target time of 150s; 2 rpm = target time of 15 s).

A.4 What is the difference between relative and absolute measuring systems?

Relative measuring systems are designed according to ISO 2555/ISO 1652. There is no exactly defined gap (so-called “infinite gap” systems) and therefore the measured viscosity is relative. Relative measuring systems are most frequently used in beakers, such as in a 600 mL (glass) beaker. If something in the setup changes (like beaker size, immersion depth of the spindle, etc.), the viscosity value will also change. Relative measuring systems for ViscoQC 100/300 are L1-L4 and RH1-RH7. On the other hand, absolute measuring systems (concentric cylinders, double-gap, small sample adapter, ultra–low viscosity adapter) deliver absolute viscosity values, since they have a defined gap. They are designed according to the standards DIN 53019-1 and ISO 3219. These viscosity values can be compared to any other instrument that measures the absolute viscosity. Absolute measuring systems for ViscoQC are CC12, CC18, CC26, and DG26. A bigger gap than specified in DIN 53019-1 and ISO 3219 is available for CC12/D18, a different (bigger/smaller) gap with slightly different spindle geometries is used in SC4-18, SC4-21, SC4-25, SC4-27, SC4-28, SC4-29, SC4-31, SC4-34.

A.5 How do I connect/disconnect the spindle?

Every spindle of ViscoQC 100/300 is equipped with a magnetic coupling. The magnetic coupling is also contained in the standard instrument delivery for each L and RH spindle. Hence, an easy and fast one-hand removal/attachment is ensured. Keep in mind that the spindles should always be removed sidewards, using a slight angle of around 10° to 45°.

A.6 What are Newtonian, shear-thinning (pseudoplastic), and shear-thickening (dilatant) flow behavior?

In Newtonian samples the viscosity of the sample does not depend on the load that is applied to it. Therefore, if different speeds are applied to a sample, it will always show the same viscosity value. Well-known examples of Newtonian liquids are water and oils. For shear-thinning and shear-thickening samples, the viscosity depends on the load applied to the sample. Therefore, the viscosity value will change with the speed. For shear-thinning samples, the viscosity will decrease as the speed is increased. Typical shear-thinning samples are coatings, adhesives, fruit/vegetable purees, and shampoo.
For shear-thickening samples, the viscosity will increase as the speed is increased. Typical shear-thickening samples are starch solutions or dispersions with a high content of solid mass.

A.7 What is included in the standard instrument delivery?

The standard delivery includes the instrument equipped with Toolmaster™ and magnetic coupling, 4 spindles (L) or 6 spindles (RH) made of highly chemical resistance stainless steel AISI 316L, stand, power supply, USB cable, V-Collect data collection software, printed SOP, and instruction manual.

B. Cleaning

B.1 What is recommended for cleaning the measuring systems?

Conventional detergents (like dish-washing agent) mixed with warm water, organic solvents like acetone, ethanol, or petroleum benzine can be used for cleaning the measuring systems. In general, cleaning of the Toolmaster™ chip should be avoided.
If the Toolmaster™ chip comes in contact with sample, please gently wipe off the sample with a soft tissue that may be wetted with water, dish-washing agent, ethanol, isopropanol, or petroleum benzine. Do not immerse the Toolmaster™ chip in solvent and do not dry it in an oven.

B.2 What is recommended for cleaning the housing of the instrument?

Water or conventional detergents like dish-washing agent mixed with warm water are recommended to clean the housing.

C. Maintenance

C.1 Can I perform a calibration oil measurement on my own?

Yes, a calibration oil measurement can be performed by every user. Be sure that the calibration oil is stored at the right temperature and is used before its expiry date. Ideally check the temperature with an external thermometer like our MKT 50 and MKT 10 thermometers and proceed according to the delivered manual. If the viscosity value is out of range, a spindle correction factor can be stored on Toolmaster™.
Anton Paar recommends carrying out a calibration oil measurement at least once a year.
If you do not want to calibrate the instrument on your own, please get in touch with us via the live chat or our contact form.

C.2 Can I perform a temperature calibration on my own?

Yes, a temperature calibration can be performed with a Peltier temperature device (PTD 80 or PTD 175) and ViscoQC 300 easily on your own. Ideally check the temperature with an external thermometer like our MKT 50 and MKT 10 thermometers and proceed according to the delivered manual. The MKT can be connected to ViscoQC 300 via Ethernet crossover cable and this allows you to perform an automatic temperature calibration guided through the software of ViscoQC 300.

C.3 Do I need to check ViscoQC 100/300 on a regular basis?

To evaluate the performance of your ViscoQC 100/300, please perform TruSine™ (the bearing check) regularly. Anton Paar recommends a maximum of 6 months between checks.

D. ViscoQC 300 and its software packages

D.1 What is included in the ViscoQC 300 basic model?

The ViscoQC 300 basic model already has the functionality of measuring multiple points (Speed Scan, Time Scan; if PTD 80/PTD 175 in use: Temperature Scan). Furthermore, speed- or shear-rate-controlled measurements can be performed. For shear rate control and displaying of the value, a DIN spindle (concentric cylinder, double-gap), small sample adapter system (SC4-xx), or an ultra-low viscosity adapter system (UL26) is necessary.
Further functionalities on the stand-alone instrument can be added by upgrading it with the software packages V-Curve and/or V-Comply.

D.2 What is included in V-Curve?

V-Curve is available as a 30-day trial on each basic model. Activation is possible any time.

V-Curve has the following software functionalities:

  • The possibility to see live measurement data in a graph
  • Programmability: Create up to 50 steps (sample preparation as separate step possible)
  • A yield method to determine the yield stress with vane spindles
  • Mathematical models (IPC Paste, Power Law, Bingham, Herschel-Bulkley, Casson, NCA/CMA Casson, shear thinning index, thixotropy breakdown coefficient, post data averaging, unique best fit feature functionality). Please note: For mathematic regression models such as Bingham, Herschel-Bulkley, Casson, and NCA/CMA Casson DIN spindles are required.
  • Methods to determine the low-temperature viscosity of samples with the Peltier temperature device PTD 175
  • Possibility to define heating/cooling rates to perform temperature ramps (needs PTD 175)

D.3 What is included in V-Comply?

The V-Comply package is delivered with Anton Paar’s unique Pharma Qualification Package and fulfills the requirements of GMP 4 Annex 11 & 15, GAMP 5, and 21 CFR Part 11. It includes the following software functionalities:

  • User management, customizable users/user groups
  • Audit trail (logbook of all events)
  • Electronic signature (2- or 3-step signing, substitute signing)
  • Advanced data integrity mode (archiving must be performed of users, audit trails, measurements (measured data), adjustment data; Deletion is no longer possible)
  • VNC mode (operate ViscoQC 300 via LAN by an external PC)
  • Value visibility mode (see results always or during measurement or only when measurement is finished)
  • Non-storage mode (system stores no measurements or adjustments)
  • Increased security functions (date and time stamp, password access and password complexity, restrict use of spindles through Toolmaster™, disable USB memory devices, and more)

D.4 How can I upgrade to V-Curve and/or V-Comply?
