Product News: Small, Smart and Powerful – Anton Paar’s New MCP 150 Polarimeter Impresses with its Sophisticated Features

15 Jun 2015

Anton Paar, technology leader and innovator in polarimetry, launches the compact MCP 150. The polarimeter is a one-size-fits-all solution: although it is compact, it provides full 21 CFR Part 11 compliance, including electronic signature requirements.

If you want to determine the optical rotation of chiral substances easily and precisely, without sacrificing quality, the MCP 150 will perfectly suit your requirements. This new device offers a one-size-fits-all solution: although compact, it doesn’t cut down on features, such as an electronic signature capability satisfying 21 CFR Part 11. The easy-to-use touchscreen supports fast navigation with unparalleled simplicity, and multiple measurement capabilities and customized methods make both routine and unique measurements better than ever. To top it all off, this model is now equipped with enhanced accuracy (0.005 °OR) over the entire measuring range of ± 89.9 °OR.

The powerful Peltier temperature control guarantees fast and even temperature distribution within a temperature range of 15 °C to 35 °C, by enclosing the sample cell in a thick Peltier jacket.

With the intelligent ToolmasterTM technology, information on all relevant parameters is wirelessly transferred to the instrument. This eliminates user errors and ensures that every change is recorded in the audit trail. LIMS and FTP connectivity are fully supported.

The MCP 150 is the right choice for pharmaceutical applications, pharmacies, universities or the flavor and fragrance industry. In each of these areas, it can meet users’ needs, and do so in a fully traceable fashion. Beyond these applications, the number of industries in which the MCP 150 can be used is large and growing. When combined with Anton Paar density meters and refractometers to establish a powerful multi-parameter system, the applications are virtually limitless.
