The Nova series is designed to provide operational simplicity and velocity – speed in the unwavering direction of precision – across the entire analysis process. Containing 4 degassing stations and up to 4 analysis stations, this instrument delivers four 5-point BETs in 20 mins, with 2 % reproducibility. Follow the analysis workflow on the tabs below to learn how Nova provides unrivaled benefits from start to finish and sets a new benchmark in surface area and pore characterization.

Benefits

All-in-one
All-in-one
  • The complete package in 1 space-saving design
  • Only 1 vacuum pump and 1 set of gas connections required
  • Degassing isolated from analysis: no contamination possible

Challenge

I currently have to manage 2 instruments for one complete analysis process (degassing and analysis). Is there a better way?

Solution

All-in-one Nova provides 4 integrated degassing stations and up to 4 analysis stations in 1 space-saving design. 

Benefit

This integrated design eliminates the clutter, cost, complexity, and additional bench space of external degassing devices.  

Programmable
Programmable
  • Degassing is completely automated – simply select a profile
  • Multiple temperature setpoints and ramp rates
  • No timers or operator intervention needed

Challenge

I want my sample preparation to be automated.

Solution

Nova’s 4 integrated degassing stations are software-controlled. Simply set up a profile consisting of one or more target temperature(s), heating rate(s) and hold time(s).  

Benefit

Nova will prepare the sample without intervention according to the profile selected. The profile used will also be recorded with the sample – no more timers or notebooks needed.  

Fully capable
Fully capable
  • Vacuum or flow degassing up to 425 °C
  • Enables preparation of a wide variety of sample materials
  • Easily switch between flow and vacuum methods

Challenge

My lab processes different types of samples requiring different preparation modes.

Solution

Nova’s integrated degassing stations are capable of vacuum and flow preparation at temperatures up to 425 ºC.

Benefit

Appropriate preparation of many sample types is easily achievable with the fully capable degassing stations.

Traceable
Traceable
  • Degassing profile automatically tracked to the sample ID
  • No need for manual input or recording
  • Sample ID tracks weight loss after degassing

Challenge

Currently, our degassing process is manual and requires the details to be kept in a lab notebook. Is there a way to easily document and record this process?

Solution

All Nova models provide automatic degassing via a degassing profile that is automatically traced to the sample ID.

Benefit

Degassing information can be easily retrieved for each sample being analyzed – no more timers or notebooks needed.  

20+ profiles
20+ profiles
  • ASTM, ISO, DIN, USP methods included – simply select & go
  • Optimized for speed while ensuring conformance
  • Reduces setup time of instrument

Challenge

I need to measure according to a published standard quickly and easily.

Solution

All Anton Paar Nova instruments come preloaded with 20+ optimized profiles for various standardized methods.

Benefit

Take the guesswork out of conformance. Preloaded profiles allow minimal setup and training while ensuring adherence to standards.

Power of 4 + 4
Power of 4 + 4
  • Highest throughput in a benchtop system
  • Analyze 4 samples while simultaneously preparing the next 4
  • 4 multipoint BETs in 20 minutes; 4 isotherms in 8 hours

Challenge

Our lab processes a lot of samples for surface area and pore analysis. How can we increase our throughput?

Solution

Nova brings the power of 4 plus 4: 4 degassing stations and 4 analysis stations offering the highest throughput available in a benchtop instrument.

Benefit

Easily keep up with your samples, with 4 multi-point BETs analyzed in 20 minutes, and 4 full isotherms for BET and mesopore characteristics within 8 hours.

TruZone
TruZone
  • TruZone maximizes analysis sensitivity
  • 2 % reproducibility with >2 m2 in the cell
  • Measure materials down to 0.01 m2/g

Challenge

How do I ensure good measurements when I have low surface-area materials and limited sample quantities available?

Solution

Nova’s TruZone active coolant level control maximizes the measurement sensitivity. Active control creates a small cold zone on the sample cell that reduces the amount of unadsorbed gas in the cell. This increases sensitivity when measuring those gas molecules which are adsorbed by the sample.

Benefit

2 % reproducibility with >2 m2 in the cell

Nova mode
Nova mode
  • Use Nova mode to obtain your results faster
  • 4 x 5-point BET results in 20 minutes
  • Operate your Nova completely helium-free

Challenge

How can I speed up analyses without sacrificing performance?

Solution

Performing measurements in Nova mode speeds up the analysis by utilizing sample cells which are pre-calibrated.  

Benefit

Reduction of analysis time without degradation of measurement performance. Performing measurements in Nova mode also allows the instrument to operate free from helium.  

Intelligent dosing
Intelligent dosing
  • DoseWizard learns from past analyses to optimize dose size
  • VectorDose’s constant dose volumes halve analysis time
  • Achieve target pressure quickly with a specified Initial Fill

Challenge

I need my measurements to be even faster. Are there more ways to speed up analysis?

Solution

The Nova series features intelligent dosing algorithms such as DoseWizard, VectorDose, and Initial fill, all of which are designed to speed up analysis. 

Benefit

These features further enhance the velocity of the measurement, speeding up the analysis without sacrificing precision.

p₀ cell
p₀ cell
  • Independent station constantly measures saturation pressure
  • Standard on every Nova model – no options required
  • Complete with dedicated pressure transducer

Challenge

Environmental variations, such as change of atmospheric pressure or change in LN2 bath temperature, can affect the saturation pressure, causing inaccuracies in data.

Solution

Every model of the Nova series comes with an independent p₀ station and transducer.  

Benefit

The accuracy of every measurement is enhanced, without the need to sacrifice an analysis station.

In real time
In real time
  • Visualize the results in real-time on the touchscreen
  • Fully control the instrument from the touchscreen
  • Upload previous results directly on the touchscreen

Challenge

I want to see my results as they occur, in real-time, at a quick glance.

Solution

The 10-inch touchscreen provides users with real-time measurement results and even full isotherms, without the need for a computer.

Benefit

Visualize the results as they appear, and check the status of the instrument with a quick glance.  

Templates
