- Malvern co-sponsors BSR Annual Meeting – high sensitivity Bohlin Gemini HR nano on show
Product News: Malvern co-sponsors BSR Annual Meeting – high sensitivity Bohlin Gemini HR nano on showMalvern Instruments will exhibit the recently introduced Bohlin Gemini HR nano rheometer at the 2006 British Society of Rheology (BSR) annual meeting (11-12 December 2006, Manchester, UK). Malvern is also one of the main sponsors.
The focus for this year’s event is cutting edge research in the field of biomaterial and biofluid dynamics. Specifically developed for the measurement and control of ultra-low torques, the Bohlin Gemini HR nano is an ideal choice for the rheological characterisation of this class of materials.
Unrivalled sensitivity at the nano-torque level allows measurement of the rheological properties of weak or sensitive structures. Accurate analysis is possible with very small sample volumes. This is critical for the characterization of biological fluids as often only small amounts of a given material are available for study.
The wide working range of the instrument delivers complete ‘fluids to solids’ capability. Both strain and stress controlled tests can be carried out easily. Highly sophisticated in operation, with a state-of-the-art bearing design and the renowned Rotonetic™ 2 DSP drive system, the Bohlin Gemini HR nano is designed for ease-of-use, allowing simple access to accurate rheological data.
