Our solutions for material characterization
High throughput screening is more and more useful to shorten the formulations time-to-market. Turbiscan AGS integrates the Turbiscan LAB stability analyzer, a robot, a storage station, and smart software for automatic sample handling and reporting. This concept enables automated management of aging tests from sample storage at different temperatures to shelf-life analysis.
Automated aging station
Up to 54 Samples, stored in 3 independent racks at a specific temperature, are transported to the instrument using an automated robotic arm. The sample is analyzed and results are automatically reported without user intervention.
Measurement of stability & size
> Quantitative monitoring of dispersion stability
> Shelf life & long term stability analysis
> Migration velocity
> Aggregation & agglomeration kinetics
> Mean diameter
> Dispersibility ratio
> Volume fraction
End-user stability conditions
Turbiscan AGS measures stability in relation to the real use and storage conditions of the formulation. The information provided represents true stability (no mechanical stress, no dilution, adapted temperature).
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.

TURBISCAN is the world reference technology for direct physical stability analysis. The Aging Station solution combined with intuitive software and highly reliable measurements makes Turbiscan AGS an irreplaceable tool for any laboratory use.
The instrument scans and files sample information using a bar code reader. The multi-user interface automatically processes and sorts the data providing an excellent solution for Quality Control requirements in terms of traceability.
TURBISCAN technologies are compliant with the International Organization for Standardization guidelines for the characterization of dispersion stability (ISO/TR 13097).
