50,000 Zetasizer references!

In today’s fast-paced marketing universe terms like “established” “recognized” “essential” and “widely used” in combination with “leader” have become so common that we hardly register when they appear out of context.  We have become fairly accustomed to these grandiose claims, and scientific instrumention is not exempt from boasting. The more reason to check the numbers…   More [...]

Probing the mysteries of the granulator

When it comes to scale-up, processes which are based on mixing are often particularly challenging. Critical geometries shift as vessel size is increased and mixing regimes can vary as a function of scale, even when using established scale-up protocols based on, for example, impeller tip speed. The optimization and scale-up of high shear wet granulation [...]

Kinexus, more than just a rheometer!

There is often a necessity to measure, or at least estimate, true viscosity values using non-standard measuring systems on a rotational rheometer. This may be to replicate a mixing or manufacturing process on a lab scale, to keep a sample dispersed and uniform during a measurement or to measure some rheological property that would be [...]
