RheoSense Inc.'s µVISCRheoSense Inc. recently released the µVISC (micro VISC), capable of completing measurements in three steps: load the sample into a disposable pipette, mount the pipette and run the test. Measurement results, including data necessary for advanced analysis, are displayed in less than a minute for most samples. Features include:

  • Viscosity (in mPa-s or cP), shear rate, and sample temperature measurement.
  • Only 100 µL needed per measurement.
  • No evaporation.
  • Accuracy exceeding one percent of full scale or two percent of reading.
  • Repeatability within one percent.
  • 1.5 lbs. and portable (powered by a rechargeable Li-ion battery).
  • Up to 20 tests logged, each with a user-definable sample ID.
