Flavors and fragrances
Getting the most information out of small volumes with multiparameter systems
Concentration, purity, viscosity – knowledge of these parameters and more is required to unlock the secrets of the raw materials and formulations used in the production of flavors and fragrances. Manufacturing chemical flavors, aromas, and perfumes which will be accepted and endorsed by consumers demands measuring instrumentation for use in rigorous quality testing and during the research phase. Anton Paar provides stand-alone instruments and modular systems which can be set to determine many parameters in automated measurement cycles.

Anton Paar Applications
Refractive Index of Essential Oils
The refractive index of essential oils is a quickly measured, easily generated quality parameter. Moreover, it helps to differentiate between different essential oils.
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.
Application RapidOxy: Stability of Fragrance Ingredients
Aldehydes are air-sensitive materials often found in fragrance compositions.
Application RapidOxy: Vanilla Extracts
The stability of different vanilla extracts was tested at 100 °C and 140 °C.
Application RapidOxy: Stability of Fragrance Oils
The stability of fragrance oils with different additives was tested at 140 °C in the RapidOxy and according to the EN 14112.
Spherical Nanoindentation of Polyacrylamide Hydrogels using the Bioindenter (BHT)
An insight into the Structure of Copolymer Surfactants
The structure of inhomogeneous (core-shell) nanoparticles was studied with the SAXSpoint system. The internal structure of Pluronic P123 micelles in water was determined by calculating the radial electron density profile.
Collagen - A Validation Sample for SAXS Systems
The performance of the SAXSpoint 2.0 system is evaluated by measurements of tendon collagen. SAXSpoint 2.0 produces data with excellent resolution in the entire angular range and delivers true 2D SWAXS images.
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.
Above all: obtaining a lot of information from a small sample volume
When available sample volumes are small, combining the measurement of a number of parameters makes sense. Filling a few milliliters into a multiparameter setup such as Modulyzer gives an output of results for density, refractive index, and optical rotation as well as recovery of the sample itself. Measurement of viscosity, turbidity, and pH can also be added to the system. Using an automated sample changer allows work to be done after hours. In the morning, the operator can check that all results are given the “OK” and if the built-in FillingCheck™ feature has flagged any measurements due to bubbles or other reasons, the operator can restart the measurement for this sample. Images of the filled sample inside the density cell are also stored with each result for later verification of the measurement.
Automated filling, draining, and cleaning – from custom vials
Using an automatic sampler like Xsample 530 is a must when there are many samples to be measured each day. Using custom vials full of sample straight from production saves time and means the original bar code can be used for identification. Xsample 530 also allows you to apply different methods within one magazine, for example to measure fragrances and raw materials. The different samples are then assigned different filling, draining, and cleaning routines, using up to 3 different solvents. And as well as being space-saving, Xsample 530 is quiet so does not disturb other work in the laboratory.
