Material scientists in research and development, advanced quality control, and academic research can now use an enhanced, modular rheometer platform to increase workflow efficiency and minimize operator error while analyzing the rheological properties of a broad range of samples. The Thermo Scientific HAAKE MARS (Modular Advanced Rheometer System) 40 and 60 rheometers offer enhanced features to the existing line of accurate, user-friendly rheometers, allowing users to expand capabilities for future needs.
The rheometers are equipped with Connect Assist technology, first introduced with the Thermo Scientific HAAKE Viscotester iQ rheometer. Connect Assist automatically detects measuring geometry accessories and temperature modules to deliver real-time feedback, making it easy for users to set up sample testing procedures with minimal errors. A push-button, automatic geometry release system makes handling both simple and convenient.
"The newest generation of HAAKE MARS rheometers is focused on ease of use and a high level of customization, allowing lab managers to respond to their specific testing applications," says Birgit Schroeder, product line director for laboratory instruments and material characterization products for Thermo Fisher Scientific.
The rheometers streamline workflows by offering application packages that bundle the rheometer with task-specific accessories for markets that include pharmaceutical, cosmetics, food, petrochemical, and polymers, the company adds.
