Multi sample stability analyzer

Turbiscan TOWER is the new flagship product of the Turbiscan range for full characterization of the colloidal stability of concentrated dispersions (emulsions, suspensions, foams). 6 independent measurement positions allow simultaneous comparison of formulations for faster and better understanding of destabilization mechanisms (creaming, sedimentation, flocculation, coalescence..). Measurements can be performed from 4 to 80°C to accelerate destabilization process or to reproduce storage conditions. An improved mechanical design and vertical set-up offer an improved performance and smaller bench footprint.

Highlights of Turbiscan Tower

Multi-sample stability analysis

Up to 6 samples can be characterized without dilution or mechanical stress. Formulations with concentrations up to 95% can be tested in their native state giving a unique insight into particle migration and size variation.

Real storage conditions

Temperature control from 4°C to 80°C offers the possibility to accelerate measurement time and observe destabilization under real storage conditions.

Turbiscan Stability Index

TSI scale provides a single value to rapidly asses and rank formulation stability independently of occurring phenomena. It is now possible to evaluate sample stability with just one number.

Key benefits

TURBISCAN is the reference technology for physical stability analysis. With hassle-free sample preparation, intuitive software and highly reliable measurements, TURBISCAN has become an irreplaceable tool for any formulator.

The instrument works with up to 6 samples at a time (disposable glass cells of 4 or 20 mL) and  allows the analysis of foams and viscous products thanks to specially designed measurement adapters.

TURBISCAN technologies are compliant with International Organization for Standardization guidelines for the characterization of dispersion stability (ISO/TR 13097).
