Malvern’s poster presentation is entitled “Novel optical microrheometry techniques for biological complex fluids characterization.” DLS-based microrheology allows the characterization of low viscosity, weakly-structured and highly strain-sensitive materials into the very high frequency regime, and can give critical insight into the short timescale dynamics of such systems. The poster highlights the complementary use of DLS microrheology to assess the rheological characteristics of dilute polymer solutions based on changes of macromolecular conformation.
Malvern’s Kinexus rotational rheometer offers high performance characterization of dispersions, complex fluids and soft solids and is used within a diverse range of industries and applications; from pharmaceutical drug development through to food quality testing. Kinexus has been designed with dual-action capabilities to enable advanced shear and vertical testing. Powerful rSpace software enables both full flexibility of test design for academic researchers, and operation under Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) driven protocols for consistent rheology testing in an industrial environment.
