There are different instruments that can be used to measure the physical stability of liquid dispersions, but which one to choose? Among all advertised solutions it is hard to make a good decision. A good way is to lead with the most popular choice among the scientific community. This can be done by visiting numerous websites and joining scientific communities but also simply by comparing the number of publications that mention the different instruments. A higher number of publications indicates that more scientists use and thus rely on the technology.
At Formulaction we have looked to compare the number of publications that mention our dispersion stability analyzer, Turbiscan, for sedimentation, aggregation, and particle size evolution quantification. We have compared the results with the two closest colloidal stability analyzer brands on the market:
The data speaks for itself: The number of publications that mention our core product Turbiscan is at least 3 times higher compared to competing tools. To all of our users, we wish to say thank you for your trust!
Another important choice when testing the stability of your sample is how to interpret and quantify the information. Is the data gathered easily compared and evaluated? To accompany and simplify the decision-making of our users we have worked over years on a simple method to express all occurring destabilization with a simple indicator. This is why we introduced the Turbiscan stability index (TSI) which quantifies stability with a single number. It is now becoming a widely used method for quantifying stability. This is also proved by the increasing number of publications that mention this method.
