Flavors and fragrances
Getting the most information out of small volumes
Concentration, purity, viscosity, and more – knowledge about these parameters 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.
Small sample quantity for a comprehensive result
When determining different parameters it is not always possible to use a high volume of sample. Sometimes there is only a small sample quantity available or the liquid to be analyzed is expensive. You want to use the smallest sample volume possible in order to keep costs low. Anton Paar has several instruments and accessories which offer a practical solution requiring only a small sample volume. Filling a few milliliters into a multiparameter setup such as Modulyzer gives an output of results for density, refractive index, and optical rotation. The sample can be recovered after the measurement. Measurement modules for viscosity, turbidity, and pH can also be added to the system.
With Anton Paar instruments there is no risk of contaminating your measured sample with previous samples. You can rely on analysis free of contamination and carry-over. Your results will be highly accurate and there is also the option to recover your samples.
The highest quality for wholesome products
A pure substance is the basis for a wholesome product. The high quality of ingredients can be ensured by measurement of density, refractive index, specific and optical rotation, oxidation stability, viscosity, Raman spectroscopy, and flash point. All these parameters can be determined by Anton Paar instruments.
Support of the production of flavors and fragrances
With our broad product range, we provide instrumentation for every situation to help you tackle your daily challenges. From raw material monitoring to formulation checks and quality control, we have the right instrument for your needs. When researching new natural or artificial flavoring, perfumes, essential oils, e-liquids, syrups, food extracts, liquid fragrances, or cosmetics, Anton Paar’s instruments help you gain insight into material properties.
Automated filling, draining, and cleaning
Using an automatic sample changer from the Xsample series is a must when there are many samples to be measured each day. Automating this step means errors caused by manual sample filling are avoided. Using customized vials full of sample straight from production saves time. In addition, the original bar code can be used for identification. With an Xsample sample changer you can apply different methods for each single sample within one magazine. The different samples are then assigned to different filling, draining, and cleaning routines, using up to three different solvents. Anton Paar’s sample changers are space-saving and quiet, so they won’t disturb other people at work in the laboratory.
