Anton Paar Products Applications
Improve Digestion Quality and Save Money – Microwave Digestion rules out Open Digestion
Reliable elemental analysis results need robust sample preparation to destroy sample matrices or to separate matrix from analytes. The sample preparation step is by far the most error-prone and critical step of the analytical procedure.
Sensor Integration - Next level Plug and Play
On the use of nanoindentation for the determination of visco-elastic properties of polymers
Application PNR 12: Consistency Measurement According to the European Pharmacopoeia 2.9.9 and the U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP)
Suitable for products like white or yellow petrolatum (vaselinum album and flavum), ointment, wax and carboxymethylcellulose sodium paste.
Tracking the Phase Transitions of Phase-changing Materials
Small- and wide-angle X-ray scattering allows to track the phase transition of phase-change materials. This study reveals the melting/crystallization behavior of paraffin wax as characterized by combined SWAXS and DSC measurements.
SAXSpoint with MetalJet Source
SAXSpoint now integrates the high-brightness MetalJet X-ray source enabling ultra-fast SAXS measurements in the laboratory.
Correlating Viscosity and Particle Size Parameters determined by Small Angle X-Ray Scattering Studies of concentrated MAb Solutions
Monoclonal antibodies (MAb) solutions are a major class of biopharmaceuticals with various applications. However, challenges like a high viscosity at the required MAb concentrations need to be addressed at an early development stage.
Application RapidOxy: Production Control of Waxes and Paraffins
Waxes and paraffins have a broad range of production applications for end products due to their versatile characteristics such as melting point, viscosity, hardness etc.
