Leveraging Laboratory Automation to Maximize Productivity – Automated Viscosity and Rheology

Heightened requirements for quality control and faster timeframes for product development and launch are becoming more common. As a result, there is an increasing need for even faster characterization of novel materials and formulations in the lab. Maximizing walkaway time from analytical instrumentation is becoming more critical to managing a lab efficiently and successfully as well as maximizing the number of measurements that are able to run independently of staff and/or overnight.

Anton Paar has worked diligently to support these increasingly stringent requirements by developing a series of automated characterization and measurement instruments. This webinar will discuss a range of automated laboratory solutions and provide a deeper dive into automated viscosity and rheology measurements with a live demonstration of the HTR 3000 high throughput rheometer. HTR 3000 is capable of running all common rheological tests in a cup and bob geometry as well as performing pH measurements and sample conditioning in parallel.
